The Lincoln County Beef Producers was formed 25 years ago by a group of local farmers to promote the sale of home grown beef in the area. The club meets six times annually and members share management practices as well as promotional ideas.
The club currently has 16 families in its membership and the yearly dues are $40. The club is a very diverse group of farmers, and represents a wide range of management practices. Some members practice rotational grazing and market grass fed beef, while others finish their cattle with a corn rotation.
You can find several breeds being represented including Black Angus, Red Angus, Hereford and Simmental to name a few.
This year the club gave two scholarships to graduating seniors and future plans are to continue with at least one scholarship annually. Marissa Wallace and Jordan Grenwalt each received $250 scholarships. Marissa attends UW River Falls majoring in Animal Science/Pre-Veterinary. Jordan attends Northcentral Technical College in the Machine Tool Technics program.
