The Story of the Rancher

The fifth generation Montanan, Matt Pierson, of the Highland Cattle Company, and best friend, Mack Dettman built quite the business for themselves. This video looks at all of the hard work and productive machinery that has contributed to their success over the years.

Take a look at the hardworking team that Matt put together, leading to the great success of his business.

The Story of the Breeding Manager

Equine breeding manager, Rita Hunsucker and assistant breeding manager, Sarah Johnson run the Wagonhound Land and Livestock Company in Douglas, Wyoming. With their own farming program and well-known brand, this ranch is truly where care and quality come to life.

Rita, a John Deere gator owner since 2010, explains how the Wagonhound Land and Livestock Company takes things beyond just a financial investment. Their main concern is that all the animals are healthy and happy, and this sometimes means that their lives essentially revolve around the moms and babies of the farm.
