Black Hills Stock Show feature: Jesse Weber and Weber Farms Cattle Co.

Courtesy photoJesse Weber developed his breeding strategy by watching and getting to know other breeders. He began utilizing stock show venues 10-12 years ago to learn about cattle and breeders and promote his own animals.

Getting into the Red Angus business was almost accidental for Jesse Weber. He was still in high school when he made the decision to raise Red Angus because his neighbors were happy with the breed. But nothing else about the Lake Benton, MN-beef producer’s success with his cattle has been that unplanned. The 25-year-old cattleman has utilized stock show venues for the past 10-12 years to both learn about cattle and breeders and promote his own animals.

“My dad, Joe, had livestock while he was farming. When he sold out, that’s when I got the bug and wanted to show cattle in 4-H,” Weber says. “Dad and I rotate corn and beans on about 2,000 acres. I’ve developed a herd of 70 cows since 1997, when I switched my focus to Red Angus. It wasn’t something I really thought out at the time, but it was probably the best decision I’ve made about cattle.”
