Keith and Kelli Skersick both came from farming families. Keith grew up on a dairy farm and Kelli’s family raised beef cattle, hogs, and hay. In 1995, the couple purchased 250 acres of land in Clearwater County. Initially, they sold the hay and rented out the pasture. A couple of years later, the Skersicks purchased 25 Hereford cows from a retiring neighbor.
Over the years, cattle numbers increased for Keith and Kelli. They now own 175 Angus-cross cows and their acreage has increased to 600 as they purchased more land. They also rent additional land for both summer pasturing and hay production. The family grows some corn for silage.
Keith and Kelli have four grown children, Kayla, Katie, Kristopher and Kari. Kristopher helps a great deal with fieldwork, calving, and sorting cows. Their daughters all have been willing to help when needed.
The Skersicks are actively involved in their church, Trinity Lutheran at Lake George.
