  • Black Hills Stock Show serves as a great place to do cattle business
    Started in 1959 by the Rapid City Chamber of Commerce Ag Committee, the first Stock Show (then named Black Hills Winter Show) was held in the Soule Building at the Central States Fairgrounds. A total of 3 breeds of cattle were shown, today there are 9 breeds shown with cattlemen and women coming from throughout the U.S. to show or sell them. Through the years the vendor show has grown, and equine events and rodeos have been added, making the 10-day stock show one of the biggest ag events in the region. In a 2012 economic survey it was found the Stock Show has an economic impact of $21.9 Million.

  • The columns of information in semen and bull sale catalogs seem to get larger and more complex every season. Genetics and genomics can certainly add to confusion and overwhelm a producer considering A.I. or a buyer on sale day. A cooperative effort between Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Select Sires and Agrarian will address this confusion through a series of seven meetings across the predominant cow-calf sector of Iowa in February.
