Welcome to Thiel Ranch

We are glad you stopped by for a visit. Located on the high plains of western South Dakota, Thiel Ranch is at Isabel, about 60 miles west of the Missouri River. The herd, 120 Angus females, runs on native, shortgrass pastures where the annual rainfall is 16 inches per year and 20 acres are needed to run a cow.

Our story begins in 1987 when Brent and Nancy Thiel made the move to Isabel and began a 35-year partnership with Les and Marcia Lindskov, forming the Lindskov-Thiel Charolais operation. Twelve years later an Angus herd was added. Lindskov-Thiel Ranch, has been a leading source of purebred sires and females across North America and internationally for nearly four decades. In early 2022, the decision was made to divide and transition the operation, thus the Thiel Ranch was formed.

Brent and Nancy’s long-term focus is on customers, cattle and land. We have great respect for our #1 customer, the commercial calf producers. They raise a superior product that will generate tons of high-quality beef, doing it mostly on land not suited to other food production. With all cattle genetic decisions and uncompromised customer service, we strive to add value and profit to the commercial rancher, while keeping an eye on the needs of the feeder, packer and consumer down the line. Lastly, we view our land as a gift to steward. Aiming to leave it better than when we got here, we plant countless trees, employ good water management and maintain conservative grazing rates on both the native and seeded pasturelands.
