The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association (NDSA) recognized five employees for their long-time service to the state’s livestock industry during a special awards ceremony at the NDSA’s 89th Annual Convention & Trade Show in Bismarck, N.D., this evening.


Rachael Preusse of Bismarck, N.D., was recognized for five years of service. Preusse is the NDSA’s brand recorder. She is originally from Eden Prairie, Minn., and came to the organization in 2013 after graduating from North Dakota State University in 2011.


Marlon Ohlhauser was honored for 10 years of service to the NDSA as a brand inspector. He is the inspector in charge at Mobridge Livestock in Mobridge, S.D., and Wishek Livestock Market in Wishek, N.D. Ohlhauser and his wife Sheila who live in Linton, N.D., have three boys, Waylon, Brent and Austin, and three grandchildren.


Allen Roshau of Dickinson, N.D., was recognized for 15 years of dedicated service to the NDSA as a brand inspector. He works the Stockmen’s Livestock Exchange and Stockmen’s Livestock West markets as a full-time inspector. He also runs a cow-calf operation south of Dickinson with his wife Cheryl. The Roshaus have two children, Sage and Reid.


Glen Clark of Williston, N.D., was honored for a quarter-century of service to the NDSA. He joined the association as a part-time inspector at Sitting Bull Livestock Auction and Horab Scale in Williston, N.D., then became full-time in 2001. He and his wife De live in Williston, where he is in charge of both locations. They have two children, Wyatt and Taylor, and a grandchild.


Former Chief Brand Inspector Stan Misek was recognized for 35 years of dedicated service to the NDSA. He began his career as a market inspector in Minot and spent most of his career there and as the inspector-in-charge at the Turtle Lake Scale. In 2010, Misek took over as the chief brand inspector and retired in July. He and his wife Angie have a son, Jeremy. Misek continues to work as a local brand inspector. He also plans to spend more time at his family ranch in Granville, N.D., camp, fish and tackle a few items on his bucket list during retirement.


“The NDSA is blessed to have such wonderful staff dedicated to the organization,” said NDSA President Dan Rorvig.
