Farmers, ranchers welcome: Cattlemen's Supply LLC opens in downtown Dickinson
Dickinson-area farmers and ranchers have a new place to get supplies to take care of their cattle, horses and even pick up a treat for their dog.
Cattlemen's Supply LLC opened its doors on April Fools' Day with one goal: to create a locally owned venue that offers all of the products a rancher needs to keep his herd healthy.
Manager Clover Noyce has more than 15 years of experience working with animals and animal health, first as a veterinarian's assistant in Wibaux, Mont., and then at other cattle supply retailers in the area.
"The ranchers can come right on in and see a face with knowledge," she said.
The store had originally found a space in northwest Dickinson, but that fell through.
"One day I came across this building and called the number and thought, 'Why not? Let's give it a shot,'" Noyce said. "I said to (owner) Tyler (Schoch), 'I think this is the one, I really do.'"
The downtown location, in the old Excel Cleaners building, isn't far from Stockman's Livestock Exchange and
is near other farm-related
"We carry branding supplies, calving supplies, horse products for winter (and) fall, horse vaccinations, cattle vaccinations, a few pet products," Noyce said,. "We do have on hand cat and dog treats."
Cattlemen's Supply offers supplies to feed and care for cattle and horses, and if it's not on the shelves, it can be ordered.
"I felt like the community really needed it," Schoch said. "I thought someone local should do it and now we're here."
The store is up and running and will be expanding on June 1, once all of the dry cleaning equipment is cleared from the space. They could possibly add veterinarian services later.
Cattlemen's Supply is located at 104 Third Ave E. in Dickinson across from Dan's Super Market's downtown location. Call them at 701-483-5876.
