Hey, I'm new to this this forum and not really sure if I know how to post, but I'll try it. I would appreciate your opinions on a question. Having grown up on my families ranch, I hope to someday have my own ranch, or at least cowboy for someone else. As a senior in high school I'm faced with the decision to go on to college, or go to work. I feel like if I go on to school I would be giving up valuable time getting hands on experience. But at the same time I think going to school would open my eyes to sides of the beef industry I know nothing about, and give me more opportunities. My question for y'all is: if you were an employer, would you be more likely to hire someone with a degree? Why? And for those of you that have a degree, has it helped you in running your ranch? I would appreciate any input.
