The Cattle Business Weekly is based in Philip, S.D. and is a regional agricultural publication serving a nine state region. The paper was started by Don Ravellette and Donnie Leddy both cattlemen and natives of South Dakota.
Their goal with the creation of The Cattle Business Weekly was to provide cattle producers and affiliates of the beef industry with current news and up-to-date market reports while also offering interesting feature stories for great reads, making us a business paper with a down home feel.
CBW also provides many youth highlights and special event sections throughout the year including state fairs, conventions and the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo.
Aside from the regular paper's promotions there is a large herd reference guide published each fall. It is well received and not only goes to our subscribers in our nine state coverage region, but is also displayed at the various livestock events and conventions we attend. It is a must read for anyone wishing to stay abreast of the ever-changing cattle industry and a great marketing venue for advertisers.
Our sales staff is also available to provide ringman services throughout the year for bull and female sales.
