Veterinarian Position open at Fort Pierre Livestock, Ft. Pierre SD
Fort Pierre Livestock
The Veterinarians at Ft Pierre Livestock Auction are retiring from the Salebarn. The position here at Ft. Pierre will be open anytime after Feb. 1st 2019.
Ft Pierre Livestock handles roughly 230,000 to 270,000 cattle per year. This includes a large number of bred females that require pregnancy test, I D, and mouthing for age on the cows. It also includes pregnancy testing of feeder hfrs, as well as vaccination of many feeder calves and yearlings, plus the ID for all bred cattle & feeding cows moving out of state after they are sold.
The Veterinarian position here requires a good share of work as well as a large financial opportunity.
2016----$397,629………...2017----$474,749 (drought year)….……..2018----$344,132
Again, this is in addition to private practice. In the busiest season, Oct. through Feb., we run 2 sales per week, (plus 3 Wed. sales in Oct). The rest of the year varies, depending on size and kind of sales. March through September is usually 1 sale per week with mid June through mid September being our slower season.
Over the years, the previous Ft Pierre veterinarians built up a very lucrative practice (largest in the state) with many of the original contacts made here with Ft Pierre Livestock customers. This is truly a big opportunity for one, two or three veterinarians.
[ Current Veterinarian staff would like opportunity to work with new Vet.]
Time is of the essence..!!
