Welcome to Bowman County, the heart of North Dakota's agriculture industry!

Bowman County's economy relies heavily on its number one industry - agriculture. Farm and ranch operations are diversified, incorporating both crops and livestock production. Spring wheat is the most extensive crop planted, but many others include peas, hay, oats, barley, rye, corn and sunflowers.

Beef cattle and sheep are also an important part of the economic cycle of Bowman County. With the wide open spaces and ample prairies, the County is ideal for cattle production. The livestock industry dates back to the early 1890's and is still one of our most important occupations.

Come to the place where endless opportunity and ideal quality of life meet!
