SOU1H DAKOTA MADE PRODUCTS THAT WE USE TO MAKE BEEF
At our farm that produces beef we use South Dakota made products such as feed wagons made in Corsica, SD at Farm Aid Manufacturing. We also use feed bunks and box scrapers made at Myerink Farm Service. Also much of our cattle handling equipment was built at Ranchers Welding right here in GREGORY.
