Ranch feature: Steve, Lori, Kelsey and Abby Repenning, Blacktop Farms

For Steve, Lori, Kelsey and Abby Repenning, the cattle business is a family affair. Located near Mitchell, SD, Blacktop Farms is a widely known and well-respected registered Hereford and Angus operation. Repenning cattle are recognized for their stylish appeal in the show ring, gentle dispositions and ability to perform in the pasture and in the feedlot.

“Our program goals are to produce a cowherd that is moderate in frame, functional in foot and udder, maternal and efficient with the potential to produce a favorable end product,” says Steve Repenning of their breeding program.

Their focus on those goals are notably achieved when viewing the Blacktop cattle. Both their Hereford and Angus herds consist of easy-keeping females, and they consistently raise high-performance, well-balanced bulls that do well in any crossbreeding scenario for the commercial cattle rancher.

Today, Blacktop Farms consists of 240 registered Angus and Hereford cows. Lori practices veterinary medicine at Northwest Veterinary Supply, and Steve focuses on the day-to-day operations of the farm and ranch, raising cattle, corn, soybeans, alfalfa and grass hay.
