Yes, there's real cowboys in South Dakota

S.D. Cowboys … Cowboys would rope and drag steers to the branders … busy boys

A cowboy's work is dusty in summer season and freezing cold in winter. Year-around they face the elements in a job that is still a reality in the west. It's a hard job that can be dangerous when dealing with the unpredictable nature of animals.

Farmers and ranchers provide food and fiber for all of us. And it's usually a family affair. Not only are there many cowboys in the West River area of South Dakota, but cowgirls, too. Jamie Crew, 19, is the daughter of ranchers Grady and Bernice Crew and when she is not riding the range, she is a student at the University of Wyoming.
