The Christiansen family has South Dakota roots that reach back over 100 years. Since 1903, the Christiansen name has remained synonymous with responsible stewardship by taking a long-term, business-like approach to land management.

Today, Christiansen Land & Cattle manages over 25,000 acres of farm and ranch land in four south central South Dakota counties.


At CLC, we work with people who care about the same things we care about. Our land-owner partners know that Christiansen Land & Cattle will respect their land. Sustainability groups know that our company is rooted in a tradition of responsible agriculture. Investors rest easy when they consider our century-long reputation for good business.


If we’re not in a field, we’re probably in a classroom. The CLC team invests heavily in educating ourselves to the latest and best farming practices. Our close relationships with advanced agronomy leaders Agrinetix and premier ag consulting groups like Centrec Consulting help us stay on the leading edge of sustainable agriculture, as do our connections to ag institutions like South Dakota State University, Cornell, and Michigan State University.
