After moving into town just a few years ago, Dickinson resident Albert Sickler said there are a few things he misses about being on a farm, such as being around the animals.

Sickler, who grew up 23 miles northeast of Dickinson, has been in the area his whole life and has been a proponent of agriculture, from helping start the agriculture department at Dickinson State University to starting the Roughrider Livestock Show, now known as the West River Livestock Show.
