The sun rises on a Thursday morning, and already, the workers at the Mitchell (SD) Livestock Auction (MLA) are ready to rock and roll for the feeder calf sale, which often exceeds 6,000 head of cattle. The workers chat jovially, cracking jokes and teasing each other about past days on the job. Yet, it’s not a job full of fun and games. Working in the sorting pens in the back part of the sale barn is a challenging job, where the employees face dangerous situations head on.

This job is typically reserved for men, and in a man’s world, women are often placed in positions deemed safer and easier than sorting wild animals in the back allies. However, three women have climbed the ranks at MLA, earning the respect and admiration of the men they work with as they tackle the work alongside their peers. TR Weischedel, Megan Putzier and Dorothy Yost aren’t your average women, and they confidence, strength and hard work ethic is evident on sale day.
