About Us

Our Family

Brian and I have been married 28 yrs. We have 5 children and 8 grandchildren. For 15 years we milked cows, and then raised dairy heifers for another 10 yrs.  During that time, we also raised some beef cattle for a growing list of freezer beef customers. Now we raise about 25 head of beef cattle and farm about 130 acres of corn and soybeans.

Zip Bandit

Zip Bandit came about because we couldn’t find our calf bander one day.  We had the idea that we should just zip tie them to make it easier and faster.  Brian loved that idea and spent the next year working on a design to make it happen. After multiple changes and a lot of prototypes, Zip Bandit was created.
