About Wayne Childers

Wayne Childers has a life-long history in farming and ranching. He has owned and operated ranches in South Dakota, Oklahoma and New Mexico. At the age of 16, his father passed away and he took responsibility of managing the family 7,200-acre ranch in Edgemont, South Dakota, where he ran commercial cows and bred heifers.  A few years later he married his wife Betsy, and continued the ranch operation, added a stud horse and started raising and training ranch, roping and barrel horses. After several decades, he sold the South Dakota ranch and moved to Oklahoma where we continued the horse operation and ran yearlings on wheat pastures and maintained a cow heard on grass, total of approximately 850 acres.  He then moved to Clayton, New Mexico where he ran cattle on pasture, hay and wheat under pivots, continuing with the horse operation.
