From ranch to city, livestock arriving for the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - Cowboys and cowgirls have started bringing in their livestock from the ranch to the city Thursday, ahead of the official opening of the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo.
Although stalls were empty Thursday, trailers started pouring in with the animals ready to be showcased.
Just under 200 youth consignees will be at the Monument for the next week and a half. This weekend, 100 beef cattle will be shown. Next weekend sheep and goats will be presented.
“These cows are treated really, really well. These show cattle, they get baths and haircuts, and they use hairspray, and it’s quite the deal. They take a lot of care and pride in their animals,” said Dani Herring, Livestock and Ag-Education Manager at the Black Hills Stock Show.
Most animals will spend the week indoors, unless the owners want their livestock to be housed in their trailers.
