Hojer Gelbvieh & Balancer Ranch is located near Lake Preston a rural farming community in east-central South Dakota. Lake Preston
is approximately 90 miles northwest of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
The Ranch is also located five miles from Laura Ingalls homestead outside
of De Smet, SD.
Hojer Gelbvieh & Balancer Ranch was established in 1991 with
the purchase of ten Gelbvieh females from Double E Gelbvieh at their
dispersal sale. Through our intense breeding program, it has since grown to 300 plus Registered Gelbvieh and Balancer cattle. Hojer Gelbvieh & Balancer Ranch takes pride
in their honesty and integrity, which has helped them become a leader
in the breed.
A bull sale is held each March. Stop by any time,
visitors are always welcome.
