Abbie and her husband, Josh, live on an acreage near White, South Dakota, where they raise their two sons, Jesse and Jed. They are enthusiastic, young members of the Beef Industry, owning a small seedstock operation consisting primarily of Angus and Simmental cattle. Josh serves as the cirector for commercial development for the American Maine-Anjou Association, and the couple owns and operates Our Perspective LLC – a livestock marketing venture specializing in livestock photography, videography and graphic design.

The Cribbses are excited to be a part of yet another family of livestock producers. With their new-found ties to the industry through the Hereford breed, Abbie said she looks forward most to meeting the membership of the Hereford association and representing the organization as its face and voice in the time to come.

The South Dakota Hereford Association exists to further enthusiasm of the Hereford breed, encourage participation among our youth, and celebrate Hereford culture.
