2017 Morrison County Farm Family of the Year

Congratulations to the Kathrein Family for receiving the 2017 Morrison County Farm Family of the Year Award!  

The Farm Family Recognition Program has existed for over 30 years and honors farm families from throughout Minnesota for their contributions to the agriculture industry and their local communities. This year's award recipients were recognized at a program held Aug. 3 at Farmfest in Redwood Falls, MN, as well as at locally hosted recognition events.

Today, the Kathreins raise 45 registered Charolais and 30 commercial cows. Almost all of the animals’ feed is raised on the farm and nearby on rented land. In 2012, the Kathreins’ Charolais herd became a cooperator herd for Leachman Cattle of Colorado, where the focus is on low birth weight, high marbling, feed-efficient Charolais breeding stock.
