Hereford ranch east of Sturgis, SD. They also run registered Quarter Horses and
in their “spare time” operate a very popular Bible camp, Rainbow Bible Ranch,
which has a very definite western theme. Emmanuel and Hazel Reinhold homesteaded
the ranch in the early 1900s. Some of their first cows were Shorthorns bred to

but we feel the results will be of much benefit to you. This extra effort will
give a professional image to the entire sale, and hopefully, more dollars in
