SOLD! An American Stockyards Story

The St. Joseph Stockyards was the last terminal riverfront stockyard in operation until 2021. We dive into the history of the industry and how it helped build the town and surrounding areas. We craft a beautiful story that's filled with nostalgia and hope for the future of cattle.
