By the Swift County
Extension Service

The Berge farm is a first-generation farm. Jess and Tammy started farming in 1999 with a cow/calf operation. In 2003, they purchased their current farm to be able to expand their livestock business.

The family’s farm consists of a cow/calf herd, a lambing through finish sheep operation and the Berges grow corn, soybeans and alfalfa. The family uses rotational grazing for their livestock.
