From Dairy to Pork

Brian Majerus has stayed pretty close to home, having lived and worked in the Lakefield area all of his life.

The 1989 Lakefield High School grad grew up working on his family’s dairy farm south of town.

“I started raising pigs in 2002-2003,” Majerus said. “I was involved in both 4-H and FFA while in high school, but with dairy cattle, not too much with hogs. It was mostly about dairy cattle.”

Majerus bought an acreage just three miles from the place where he grew up. It had one old hog barn on it, he said.

“I got hooked up with the FCA (Co-op) in Jackson with Jerry Svoboda and got me some pigs out here and just went from there,” Majerus said. “I started with a 500-head barn. Now I am hooked in with a guy out in Nebraska. He farrows his own pigs and I feed them out. I don’t get them in as nursery pigs; I get them in as feeder pigs here. My home site is mostly feeder pigs too.”

Majerus has two sites — one is a 2,500-head site at his place and the second is a 4,000-head site near Jackson.
