The South Dakota Angus Association summer tour was held Sept. 13-14. With an outstanding lineup of Angus genetics, many purebred breeders, commercial cow-calf producers and cattlemen from surrounding states took part in the event.

The tour began in Huron, SD, at Schelske Angus, with cattle on display from Arrow J Angus and Bussmus Angus. From there the group traveled to Edgar Bros. for dinner and another display of cattle. Next on the tour stop was Styles Angus, with cattle one display from Bush Angus. Following that stop was RBM Livestock, a family operation that started with 25 bred heifers in 1981 and has grown to 300-plus mother cows today.

The second day of the tour began at Glacial Lakes Livestock in Watertown, SD, who opened up their sale barn to local Angus breeders to showcase their cattle. Breeders with cattle on display included: Dahl Angus; Merten Cattle Company; Wicks Angus; Kopriva Angus; Hurlburt Cattle; Tesch & Sons; Tesch Brothers; Reppe Ranch; Borns Angus; Fox Angus; C&M Cattle; Solsaa Angus; and Jankard Angus. The depth and variety of genetics presented by these breeders made for an informative tour stop.



The tour group then traveled to Redstone Feeders and Wilkinson Angus Ranch for a feedlot tour. This family operation runs 900 registered Angus cattle with 350 head artificially inseminated each year along with 200 heifers.

Following dinner, the tour returned to Huron to tour Magness Livestock. They also opened up their sale facility for Angus breeders to display cattle, which included: DeVries Angus; Nelson Angus; Moore Angus; and Bunker Cattle Co.



The South Dakota Angus Association summer tour was well represented, thanks to association leadership: President Ryan Bergh of Florence, SD; Director Cody Edgar of Rockham SD; Director Scott Bush of Britton, SD; Secretary TJ Gabriel of Midland, SD; and Treasurer Aaron Schelske Treasurer of Virgil, SD.
