She was born and raised on her family’s cattle ranch in North Central Florida, and now resides in Sumner, Nebraska, where she farms with her husband Bart and his parents on Beattie Ranch, a fifth-generation family farm. Currently, the Beattie’s farm corn, soybeans, alfalfa, and certified grass seed. In addition to raising crops, they run a cow/calf ranch and a wean-to-finish swine operation where they utilize the corn they’ve raised as the primary feed source for the livestock. While Shana and her husband understand the immense responsibility of producing quality food to feed the world, she cannot think of a better opportunity to give her four children than their way of life in agriculture.
