Thorstenson Hereford Ranch had to postpone their sale for two weeks, due to the South Dakota snowstorms. They ended up with a nice day, and a good crowd. The bulls were all on display outside in the sunshine, with the actual sale conducted in their comfortable barn via video screens.

Thorstenson Ranch, homesteaded in 1886, is located in north central South Dakota near the beautiful Oahe reservoir. Bill and Paula, along with son, Darin and his wife, Danielle, operate the ranch. The Thorstenson's are very selective—only the top 20% are offered at the auction.

Thorstenson's strive to produce females with fertility, structural soundness and natural thickness, all grown on their tremendous native grass.
