Ranchers at the 60th annual Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo are looking to hire.

Farms, ranches, and livestock operations from across the Midwest set up shop and posted job openings at an agriculture job fair at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center on Wednesday.

Tristate Livestock News Events Coordinator Kelsey Ruzicka said that working in the agriculture industry is one way to participate in the "American Dream".

“You not only get to flex those entrepreneurial skills but you also get to get involved in the environment, get involved in the culture, and you also get to get involved in the lifestyle," said Ruzicka. "Anyone that works in this industry will tell you it's the best customers you will ever have.”
