7th Annual Rancher Round-Up draws hundreds to Union Center

UNION CENTER, SD – As haying season comes to an end, about 500 ranchers gathered in Union Center for Cammack Ranch Supply’s Rancher Round-Up on Aug. 14.

“This has really become a community event. Tonight the Bible School kids are the opener for the cowboy singer/songwriter, Bob Petermann,” said Gary Cammack, of the trade show, steak fry and entertainment. “It’s a great way to celebrate the winding-down of haying season and reconnect with neighbors.”

Cammack opened Cammack Ranch Supply with his wife, Amy, 30 years ago.

This is the seventh year they have hosted the Rancher Round-Up. During the day, area producers networked with several ag-related businesses, organizations and federal agencies which set up booths in the trade show area.

Thor Roseth, owner of Philip (SD) Livestock Auction, was one of about 40 vendors who traveled to Union Center for the event.

“This is a great location to meet with livestock producers. It’s in the center of everything,” said Roseth of Union Center, a rural ranching community of about 40, located about 50 miles from Sturgis. He adds that along with providing producers with the equipment, products and services they need on their farms and ranches, Cammack Ranch Supply provides off-ranch income to 14 community members – many of whom drive in from area ranches each day.

Like their employee-team and many of the customers they serve, the Cammacks also operate a large cow/calf operation.

“I always tell customers that we are a ranch supply store with a 7,000-acre laboratory,” Cammack said.

Cammack Ranch Supply carries the expected – equipment, feed, veterinary supplies, fencing supplies, and livestock working facilities. It also carries the unexpected – like V-windbreaks which provide shelter to as many as 50 cow/calf pairs and solar and wind-powered waterers. Larry Rhoden, a rancher and long-time customer of Cammack Ranch Supply, says Cammack is always looking for products that will solve the unique challenges his customers face.

“Cammack Ranch Supply is a solutions’ hub for ranchers,” said Rhoden, who also serves as a South Dakota senator. “Gary finds solutions, where others only see challenges.”

Whenever he needs supplies for the ranch he manages, Shane Labrier drives from Bison, SD to Union Center. He says in one-stop he can get all the supplies he needs, making the 113-mile trip worth while.

“It’s a one-stop shop. They are very accommodating. If I’m running late, they will stay open for me,” said Labrier, manager of the LaGrand Scotch Cap Ranch.
