NEW BERLIN, WI (February 17, 2015) – Saddle up with Sportsman Channel’s Amazing America with Sarah Palin, as former Governor Sarah Palin heads to the Priefert Family Ranch in Texas. The Prieferts show the former vice presidential candidate what it takes to manage 1,700 acres of land, cattle and a manufacturing plant. Palin gets plenty of hands-on experience and an opportunity to take on an intense hunt for wild hogs. Amazing America with Sarah Palin airs Thursday, February 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT at Sportsman Channel.

SarahPalinPriefertsHorsebackThe Priefert Family – self-made, all-American ranchers – built a business from the ground up, becoming the leading manufacturer of goods in the cattle ranching and rodeo industries. Palin visits with the family members who started it all to learn how the Priefert Family Ranch came to be. And, she’s not afraid to get a little dirty. Palin actively participates in a hunt for wild hogs and gets behind the machines that build cattle handling gear. With a little help from the resident cowboys, Palin channels the spirit of the “Wild West” while learning the ropes of 21st Century ranching with her cowherding and riding skills.

“It fills my heart to know that it’s still possible in America to run a business based on family values – like the Prefierts,” said Palin. What really strikes you about the Prieferts is their humility. They couldn’t be more successful in their field, but it hasn’t gone to their head one bit. They stay focused on what’s important: family, hard work and giving back.”

Amazing America with Sarah Palin airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Sportsman Channel.
