Les Shaw knows it has to rain, at some point, but how will the family ranch fare until then? Shaw is a fourth-generation rancher in White Owl on the land his great grandfather homesteaded in 1898. He and his brother, along with their families, run the cow-calf operation. In 2021, the drought conditions in South Dakota severely impacted the ranch operation.
