TELL US ABOUT 5M Feeders.

5M Feeders is a family business that raises bottles calves from three days old to 1400 pounds.  We have five children ranging in age from 10-19 who are all part owners in our operation. As a family, we work hard daily to feed and take care of our animals for optimal health and to produce a quality consumer product.  

What is your favorite part of raising your kids on the farm?

Our favorite part of raising our children on the farm is all of the life experiences it offers, as well as working together as a family.  Helping them learn a good work ethic and a "don't quit" attitude, no matter the circumstances that life throws at you, is so important to us.

"Our favorite part of raising our children is helping them learn a good work ethic and a 'don't quit' attitude, no matter the circumstances that life throws at you."

HOW DO YOU USE TECHNOLOGY TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND ANIMAL CARE ON YOUR FARM?

We use technology on the farm to monitor the calves average daily intake and average daily gain. We also use technology to monitor temperature and air quality in the barns.    

WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?

We are most proud of the goals we have set for our farm operation and seeing those goals come to life. We started with just four bottle calves, and today we have a barn that holds seventy calves.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE YOUR FAVORITE CUT OF BEEF?

We prepare our steaks on our smoker grill with a special seasoning from the Redwood Area Cattlemen's Association. 

WHERE CAN WE FOLLOW ALONG WITH THE ACTIVITIES ON YOUR FARM? 

You can follow u on Facebook at 5M Feeders.
