When Travis Hosteng, Ben Hein, and Eric Franje decided they wanted to build a herd, the three producers were faced with endless decisions. Everything from where to buy animals, to how many to purchase, to what to feed them had to be considered. Travis Hosteng works full time as a structural engineer and lives north of Huxley, Iowa, on 45 acres with his wife, Sherry, and their three children. Having grown up on a farm in Sac County, Hosteng wanted his children to experience the hard work and respect that comes with raising animals.
Bryan Thill set his sight on raising beef cattle while he was yet in high school. But growing up on 3 acres with no natural prospects of getting either cows or land, Bryan had to be creative to live his dream. Luckily, he found a spouse, Amy, who shared his hopes. Today the Thills, now only in their mids, own 80 beef cows and acres of grassland near Pleasantville, Iowa. The course they followed to build a herd shows a carefully charted journey marked by well-placed steps.
