Chippewa County Farm Family

Chad and Missy Ochsendorf

Chad’s great-grandfather purchased the farm in 1915 from one of his aunts. Over the years, the family has raised corn and soybeans along with cattle, farrow-to-finish hogs, and currently, the family runs a registered Angus herd.

The Ochsendorfs’ farm is 160 acres of pasture and hay ground with 30 head of registered Angus cows. The family sells bulls and bred heifers and also does custom baling.

Chad and Missy have four children: Kaileigh, Kami, Alise and Jacob.

The Ochsendorfs have been a 4-H family for more than 18 years. Chad and Missy grew up in 4-H as well. Their daughters participated in FFA. Missy has served on board of the Montevideo Area Youth Center and been a part of the Chippewa Valley Youth Club for about 12 years. The Ochsendorfs are members of Hope Reform Church where Missy helps lead the youth group and helps with children’s church. They were married at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, where Missy taught for 12 years.
