High Plains Genetics: Cattle & equine reproduction business focused on customer service

The workday at High Plains Genetics, located in Piedmont, SD, begins at first light and often ends at midnight or later. The workload is endless; physical paired with mountains of paperwork. With such a busy schedule, days off and weekends are unheard of. Obviously, one willing to work those hours has to be committed to what they are doing, and so it is for Ty and Jenny Hendrix, on-sight management for the reproduction business.

Since taking over management reins Jan. 1, 2011, business has increased steadily as breeding season for horses and cattle moved into full swing. The couple have met the challenge with enthusiasm and excitement.

“It takes everything while the season is on. Jenny is my right-hand here. It’s long hours and hard work and she keeps things rolling,” Ty states. “Everybody here has to be committed, and they are. Everyone does a great job.”

High Plains Genetics isn’t new territory for Ty, as he worked for the business under the original owners through the 2004-2006 breeding seasons. He spent the past two years at JEH Stallion Station in Texas, learning the finer details of top-end stallion management and equine reproduction from some of the best in the business.

Raised at Floydada, TX in a farming and ranching family, Ty always knew he’d end up in the ag industry. While attending Tarleton State University at Stephenville, TX, he met Jenny, a South Dakota girl with the same goals in mind. Jenny grew up on a ranch in the Black Hills area, and after college, they couple moved back to South Dakota.

“We really like this area. We have five-year-old twin boys and feel it’s a great place to raise our family. This is a unique area with good values,” Ty says.
