Over the past few years we have really found a new groove with “Family & Business”. Brad and the girls love to rodeo. The girls bring a certain zest, exuberance and style to the business. Bailey is 16 this year, she has just started up her own horse training business this past summer. Denver is 13, she's the "Competitive" one. Her motto is "If your not first, your last". Dakota is 10 and she's our social butterfly. Often we can find her chatting up the Farmers and Ranchers at the coffee pot..... with her dad hahahaha. We are so proud of them, they have already achieved a lot in Barrel Racing and Roping….. going through the ups and downs of life….. they never let anything keep them down for long. The girls are also very involved in 4-H. Last year they went into the Beef project, the year before that they were in the light horse project and this year we are running a 4U rodeo club. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, we also own and operate “The Longhorn Arena”. Brad and I built an 80x200 Indoor Riding Arena in 2012. Its fully insulated and finished!! We love to host Roping, Jackpots, 4-H, Clinics…… and everything in-between!!
Community is high on our list of values, we want to offer value back to our community through the things we enjoy and have fun with!!

I’m Edwin Volk and I am in charge of Animal Health, Cattle show supplies & Hardware at the store. I have been working here for almost 10 years, since October 2008. What I love most about it is that I am always up to date and in the loop with new technology, information and products regarding the cattle industry. At home I run a 70 head commercial herd of cattle. I winter them out and during the summer months I setup a rotational grazing system. In my spare time I enjoy socializing, local events, dances, concerts and sports…… Hockey in particular.
I will greet you with a smile when you walk through the door, help you find whatever it is you are looking for and answer any questions you have. What I love most about working here is the people I work with and the people I get to meet everyday. I also enjoy learning about all of the new products in the store. I was born and raised on the chuckwagon circuit, so that's where you will find me on the weekends in the summer! I also enjoy volleyball, riding horses, working on the farm and spending time with family and friends. Come and check out the store! I look forward to meeting you :)

They treat their customers that way too - It’s a great pleasure to work here.
