In cowboy hats and fancy dresses, people braved the cold to attend the annual Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo Stockman's Banquet and Ball.
This year three were honored.
The ball gives the community a chance to recognize individuals and businesses who have shined in the agricultural field.
Agri-Businessmen of the Year went to Don Ravellette and Donnie Leddy. Stockman of the Year went to Gregg Butman. And the Silver Spur Hall of Fame Award went to Jerry Hammerquist.
Hammerquist says the Hall of Fame Award goes to someone who puts in the time to help out others he is honored to receive it. "Well, the class of people that have won this award; it puts me in a special class of people,"said Hammerquist.
As always, the ball was an opportunity for the Stock Show Foundation to present scholarships to students who could pursue a life that supports agriculture.
