Stock Contractor

(Click to enlarge) From left: TJ and Jim Korkow receive 20 year recognition as Roughrider Days Stock Contractor from Roughrider Commission in 2006.

Third generation rodeo producer and stock contractor, Korkow Rodeos LLC has been producing rodeos for over 60 years.

Pierre, South Dakota, has been home to the Korkow family since the 1920s. Over 90% of Korkow bucking stock is raised at their 20,000 acre ranch, the Anchor K, nestled in the rolling hills of the Missouri River. Their stock is branded on the left hip with the Anchor K. Jim Korkow likes to say it's the brand the bucks!  The Korkow family's "A-Team" stock has been selected by the top cowboys to buck at every National Finals Rodeo since the rodeo's inception in 1959 - a claim only two other stock contractors can make. In addition to the NFR, Korkows also have stock nominated annually by the cowboys to perform at the Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo and the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo.

Korkow Rodeos LLC supplies stock annually to nearly 40 events including PRCA, Indian, college, high school, and youth 4-H rodeos; bull ridings and saddle bronc matches traveling to as many as 13 states across the country.

Korkow Rodeos: It's a family affair for Anchor K Ranch

Early Sunday afternoon, T . J . Korkow, his wife Brie and their two young children, Cactus and Clover, along with his parents Jim and Carol and their ranch hands, were on the road driving north on US83, just having completed their 12th year of providing some of the top rodeo stock bareback and saddle bronc horses and bulls to the Beef Empire Days PRCA Rodeo at the Fairgrounds Arena.


Congratulations, Korkow Rodeo LLC! From left: Jim and TJ Korkow were awarded a buckle for Wiggle Worm’s performance at the 2014 National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Saddle bronc rider, Jake Wright, won first round on Wiggle Worm with a score of 84 points.


Congratulations on Your
50th Anniversary Celebration 2013, Korkow's!
