"Ultimately, farmers and ranchers, like me, are constantly thinking about and taking action to best preserve the land and air that we rely on and ensure that we leave it as pristine as possible for future generations."

Cattle farmers, like me, are dedicated to caring for our animals and the land every day of the year.    


I’ve been involved in the beef industry since I was young, growing up showing cattle and working on my family’s cattle farm, and sustainability has always been central to our decision making. We employ grazing management practices that accelerate the process of grasslands storing carbon in the soil. This reduces our carbon footprint, increases the soil’s capacity to hold water, and improves soil health, which has promoted growth opportunities for additional native plant species.    

My family and I take great pride in the stewardship principles we’ve applied for years. Those practices help protect the natural, open space needed for Wisconsin’s wildlife populations to thrive.  

Ultimately, farmers and ranchers, like me, are constantly thinking about and taking action to best preserve the land and air that we rely on and ensure that we leave it as pristine as possible for future generations.    

My family takes great pride in knowing that we are providing our neighbors with high-quality protein in the most sustainable way possible.   

Consumers should feel good about eating beef, knowing it is produced on farms just like ours, by people just like us, all across America.
