Potential farmers, ranchers stymied by high land pricesSALEM — When Taia Huls left the ranch to attend South Dakota State University, she longed for a career in agricultural.
“I knew all I wanted to do was work with livestock,” Huls said.
The love of livestock led her to get her animal sciences degree from SDSU and a master’s degree in ruminate animal sciences from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Technically, the 26-year-old Huls graduated in December 2008, but by November, she was already on her dad’s place three miles west of Salem, helping with 300 head of cattle.
