A third-generation Arizonan, Steve Pierce was born in Phoenix in 1950. He moved to Prescott while in grade school when his dad, Delbert, acquired the first of several ranches now known as the Las Vegas Ranch.  He was raised on the family ranch where he learned the value of hard work at a young age. A graduate of Prescott High and the University of Arizona, Steve has continued the family tradition of ranching. Steve and his wife Joan have been married for 35 years. They raised their four children in Prescott, and are now blessed with four grandchildren.

He graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. His family has been ranching in Arizona since 1915, and Steve himself has five decades of experience working as a rancher.

Steve has served in various cattle and agriculture organizations, both locally and nationwide, such as the National Cattlemen’s Beef Board, the US Meat Export Federation, and the Arizona Beef Council. In addition, Steve has served on the Board of Directors of County Bank, the Anasazi Foundation and the Central Arizona Partnership. Steve is active with the Yavapai County Republican Party, where he was elected as Chairman, and has been elected to the State Executive Committee for the Arizona Republican Party for the last five years

Steve has always been an excellent steward of the land for which he is responsible. He was recognized for his efforts in 1983 when the Arizona Section of the Society for Range Management named Steve and his father Delbert “Range Managers of the Year”.

In the Senate, Steve is the Senate Majority Whip and serves as Vice Chairman, Natural Resources, Infrastructure and the Public Debt. He is also a member of Rules, and Appropriations.
