Clint Hoss grew up on a cow-calf operation in southwest Nebraska. After completing horseshoeing school in 1996 he went to work for Adkinson Inc., a feedlot and grazing operation in Benkelman, Nebraska, where he was responsible for livestock care from 1996-2006. Clint had the opportunity to work with Bud Williams when Bud resided in Benkelman and was strongly encouraged by Mr. Adkinson to employ Bud’s techniques. Clint then became a self-employed stocker operator from 2006-2008. From 2008-2010 Clint managed the equine division and worked as a cattle crew associate for the Dearborn Ranch in Wolf Creek, MT. From late 2010 through 2016, Clint worked as the General Manager of the Piojo Ranch in Watrous, NM where he managed livestock with a low stress handling emphasis, and was responsible for developing long term sustainability programs. In June 2016 the Piojo became part of a larger ranch, the Phoenix Ranch, where Clint continues his previous duties in an expanded role.
