I have a full-blooded Belted Galloway bull for sale (DOB: 3/26/2021). He is a super gentle bull that would be perfect for a small herd. He is a super easy keeper. He is ready for his own herd now and will be a great asset to a herd. He had a great low birth weight. The Belted Galloway breed is a heritage breed that is well known for its maternal instincts and longevity. He is able to be registered if that is desired (will be $200 extra to cover all the costs with that). I'd like to sell him for $1,500 but would consider less if the buyer would be a good fit. (The photo is a little dated but if you are interested I can send newer pictures)

.Cummins' Corporate Hospitality is a farm-to-table restaurant with locations in Columbus, IN and Indianapolis. They are hiring a line cook (no experience needed) and a pastry chef. More below. first, a note from the Chef, Max Joyner:
I think it may say that the position is based in Columbus but both could be in either location. It doesn’t mention it in the description but I do think that one of the big things that sets these jobs apart from comparable industry ones besides the local food focus is the quality of life, work/life balance. Our schedule is set by the business, so it mainly follows an 8-4 Monday-Friday schedule. Paid holidays, paid vacation time, sick pay and one week Christmas shut down paid. As a part of Cummins, we also uphold a strong corporate ethics code. Every service we do is prescheduled, so we know all the dinners that we do have several weeks in advance. We don’t have a set menu – and work with a network of farmers and cook with what is in season. There is lots of room for experimentation and creativity.
There is no need for any formal training or past experience for the prep cook role.
For more info, contact Max Joyner: firstname.lastname@example.org.
