Strommen Ranch

About Strommen Ranch

Strommen Ranch is a registered Angus seedstock operation near Fort Rice, N.D., approximately 37 miles south of Mandan, N.D. It is owned and operated by Aaron & Sheyna Strommen and our kids, Cassidy, Cooper & Clint.

Our cattle must survive – and thrive – in a low-input, grass-based environment of the Northern Plains. We select cattle for their fleshing ability on native range, fertility, longevity and sound udder and leg structure. We AI our cattle for two cycles and have an extensive Embryo Transfer program. This, along with implementing a rotational grazing system, is the primary focus of our internship, though students will also be exposed to some brand development work through our second business, Strommen Livestock Services.

“I had an absolute amazing time this summer. Aaron and Sheyna were amazing to work for and their three kids definitely kept things interesting! Their oldest is a sophomore in high school, their middle is an eighth grader and their youngest, will steal your heart and he is in the second grade. One of my favorite jobs this summer was "cake" breaking the heifers. Cake is like a treat that is full of extra vitamins and minerals that the cattle might not be getting enough of in the pasture. At first the heifers were curious, they would slowly come towards the piles I made and smell around, but by the end of the summer all I would have to do is turn the ranger off and yell "come boss" and those girls would come running! A couple of the heifers would even eat the cake out of my hand. Another part of the job that was always exciting was watching the calves grow and flourish into beautiful calves! The Strommen's have an incredible herd and their calves really show how great of genetics they use! ”
