The Pierre Area Chamber's Agri-Interest Committee invites you to join us as we travel to the Korkow Ranch for the annual Ag Tour. The purpose of this tour is to continue to recognize the importance of agriculture in our local economy and regional heritage. The tour will take local residents and business people by bus from the Pierre Area Chamber of Commerce to the Korkow Ranch in the historic Medicine Creek Valley area.
The 'Anchor K Ranch', located 20 miles east of Pierre, is not a commercial hunting operation, but a working ranch which raises rodeo livestock and has quality farm ground. With approximately 4.5 miles of springs from Medicine Creek winding through the terrain, livestock and wildlife are provided with quality water and land where they can thrive. The Korkow family have been stewards of the land for five generations and over 80 years.
Participants will get to see the areas they have developed for pheasant hunting and wildlife habitat, the mares pasture and breeding program for rodeo horses, as well as visit the areas they keep and breed Brahma cows for bucking bulls. Historical sites located on the grounds will also be visited: teepee rings, rock formations and ancient bones.
Attendees will dine on-location with dinner provided by Richie Z's Catering.
This trip promises to be both informative and fun. We hope you can join us!
