Back in 1884, when this photograph was taken outside of Belle Fourche, SD, it was already a busy livestock community! Over time, the area would grow, thrive and become known as “Cowtown USA,” shipping more cattle than anywhere else in the ‘states’. It’s also become a noteworthy destination for those with sheep-savvy, horse-sense apractical operations.

Farmers, ranchers and ag folks can ALWAYS count on economic change, weather conditions, and markets to influence decisions. As our staff, sales teams, ring service men, admin and editorial staff has grown, we find that we are bustin’ at the seams! With that in mind, we are moving our operations from Spearfish, SD, to Belle Fourche, SD. With the progressive ag-mindset and the type of community folk who are as passionate about agriculture and livestock as we are, it seems a natural place to roost.

As we continue to approach our 50th year (Tri-State) and 30th year (Farmer & Rancher Exchange), we look forward to serving our fine readers and advertisers in a new locale. Drop by our new offices in Belle Fourche! The office is geared toward easy access (even with a stock-combo), serving our customers and maybe even gettin’ ’em to pull up a chair, chew the fat and share a cuppa’ joe! Thanks for your business – we can’t wait to see ‘ya!
