Local Family Featured in National Ranching Video

Posted:

One ranching family is recognized for the work they do on a national TV program.
"I am Angus" is a show that airs on RFD-TV.
Recently a North Dakota couple was featured on the report.
Ag Reporter Sarah Gustin takes you to the Strommen (Strum-in) Ranch.

(Aaron Strommen / Rancher) "It's in my blood. We've had cattle since we got married. My grandfather started in 1942. we got the last three heifers from his herd, and moved on from there. And I've never wanted to do anything else."
Aaron and Sheyna Strommen ranch near Fort Rice.
They couple has been raising cattle since 2001.
To say the least they didn't have to do anything fancy or change their way of life to be featured on this TV program.
(Sheyna Strommen / Rancher) "They really captured what is most important to our family, being able to raise our kids around these cattle. Being able to raise these cattle starting from scratch. We feel very blessed for the opportunities we've been given in this life in north Dakota and we can't imagine doing anything else."
While ranching is a business.
It's a way of life.
(Sheyna Strommen / Rancher) "Other than the cattle themselves and the pure enjoyment of nature and taking care of the land, and natural resources, I love the people that are involved in the industry. I just don't think you can find better, more salt of the earth people than those in the cattle industry."
The Strommen's agree, family is one of the biggest reasons they are in the business.
(Sheyna Strommen / Rancher) "Aaron and I felt that pretty strongly in 2011. When our son Clint was 7 days old we had to fly him to Minneapolis, 8 hours away from our ranch, and we had a great support system in our family to take care of our two older kids, but it was our ranching friends that took care of the business back home, and it really meant a lot for that." 
As for the future, the Strommens have no plans of slowing down.
Aaron says expanding and moving forward are the goals on the horizon.
(Aaron Strommen / Rancher) "We are in this thing for our kids. Hopefully the next generation, our kids want to take over and do what we are doing. And that's why we are doing this."
