This was most clearly evident in the segregated eating arrangements, "The boss and the jackaroos ate meals in the 'big' or 'government' house. By Vigars  said "A jackeroo may be called upon to do all manner of work on a station, such as clerical work, boundary riding, mustering sheep and cattle, fencing [repairing fences], and generally any work there may be about the place, so that he not only needs a fair education, but intelligence and adaptability".
Vigars continues, "A jackeroo is a title signifying a youth under training for the pastoral profession, and corresponding to the midshipman on a warship — an apprentice in the Mercantile Marine Service — or in a commercial house — an articled clerk in a solicitor's office, and so on. The traditional method for training young men for practical occupations had been the apprenticeship , and this began to be replaced by programs of formal schooling.
