South Dakota Cattlemen's Foundation Board of Directors
Donnie is the Publisher/Owner of The Cattle Business Weekly. Over the past decade, The Cattle Business Weekly publication has developed into a "go to publication" for those involved in the cattle business. A dedicated team of editorial staff add a personal touch to the livestock news you need to know on a weekly basis, while a talented group of graphic design artists put "the ink to the newsprint" as well as designing promotional materials and sale catalogs for many livestock producers. The CBW prides itself on the number of production and bull sales their fieldmen attend on an annual basis.
Donnie is a graduate of South Dakota State University where he met his wife of 25 years, Krecia. They have three children, Kiera, a senior at Oklahoma State University, Kadon, a sophomore at South Dakota State University and Korbin, a freshman St. Milbank High School.
The Leddy children represent the fourth generation in production agriculture in northeastern South Dakota. As a family, they are active in 4-H and FFA. They have a herd of Charolais cattle and Donnie was recently elected to serve on the board of directors for the American International Charolais Association.
