In January 1944, Ralph Sydenstricker founded Sydenstricker Implement in Paris, Mo. Ralph got his start in the farm equipment business working as a technician for a tractor dealer near Fulton, Mo. Prior to starting a business of his own, Ralph worked as a territory manager for John Deere. In September of 1952, Ralph traded a tractor for his first Black Angus cow and Sydenstricker Angus Farms was launched.
