Kazakh Cattle Owners Tour North Dakota

Posted: Updated:

White has to recruit local ranchers to show off their merchandise.

Jon Schaeffer takes a tour with the group on the 7-N ranch near Medina.

Arlyn has been farming his whole life.

Now he's sharing the secrets to success with interested buyers.

According to the North Dakota Trade office, more than 5000 cattle have been flown from Fargo to former Soviet Republic countries including Kazakhstan.

With more deals in the works-- Arlyn is helping show these cattle owners how to run the ranch.

(Arlyn Schmidt/ 7N Ranch) "I got a call from Larry White with the North Dakota Trade organization and asked if we'd host a group of wanna be cowboys from Kazakhstan and kind of show them the works of our operation around here."

Riding a bus around Arlyn's family's fields--every new thing the Kazakh ranchers see they want to learn more about.

(Vakhid/ Kazakhstan) "Here we're seeing a lot. We're seeing the new technology the cattle. and we are planning to sell different types of breeds and to follow the new technology nutrition system here in the state."

They are taking everything about cattle and ranching in now-- to take home and practice later.

(Arlyn) "Just driving by a stock pond a former stock pond that we converted to a pumping system with a solar pump they noticed the solar panels and we had to divert right away and get over there and look at that you know. They're not just looking at the cattle. They're looking at anything that appears to be new to em and they really examine that situation and they take notes."

Just as important as learning about the ranching--Arlyn and his family are showing them North Dakota hospitality.

(Almat/ Kazakhstan) "Just few people working at the facility. We just love the people here great hospitality and great fun here."

The NDTO says that more than 5000 Angus and Hereford cattle have been flown from Fargo to former Soviet Republic countries including Kazakhstan.

The group continues their North Dakota tour with stops in Mandan tonight and the Bowman and Hettinger areas over the next week.
