A story by AFAN
What started with a phone call from Walt Traudt’s banker has grown into an exciting step forward in Nebraska Agriculture. The Traudt family from Clay Center, Neb., had no previous experience with hogs, which made the phone call from their banker proposing that they diversify with livestock a little out of the ordinary. After a few family discussions, the Traudts contacted Alan Stephens with Maschhoffs to start drawing up plans for their new hog barn.
