Donated by Ecklund Stock Farm of Cambridge, Minn.,
on behalf of the MN/WI Charolais Association
Eklund Stock Farm, owned and operated by Chris, Joy, and Charlie Eklund, was founded in 2004 and raises registered Charolais, Red Angus and commercial cattle. They raise about 20 cow/calf pairs a year comprised of some of the top Charolais bloodlines in the country. Chris and Charlie have created a herd utilizing multiple national champion Charolais bulls.
During Charlie’s years of showing, he made annual appearances at Charolais Junior Nationals and other national breed shows, even winning his class at the 2013 Junior Nationals. While the Eklund’s are no longer in the show ring, they have continued to support their local 4-H’ers and any other youth who are interested in the cattle industry.
Eklund Stock Farm is proud to be apart of MYBEP and the Minnesota Beef Expo, and they are proud to continue to encourage the next generation of Charolais breeders.
