Owner Ficke Cattle Company-
Graze Master Genetics
Contact Del today to establish a working relationship in your operation to elevate your soil's production and profitability.
Del Ficke, Ag Relationship Advisor at Elevate Ag, also owns and operates Ficke Cattle Company – Graze Master Genetics®. With more than 35 years of experience as both an agriculturist and cattleman, Ficke has developed a one-of-a-kind trademarked breed of composite cattle called the Graze Master.
Ficke has spent the last several years transitioning his farming operation back to what he calls, “a more holistic, sensible and profitable approach that is both modern and historically-based in both concept and philosophy.” He is restoring the soils to their more natural state and has transformed commodity-driven cropland back into native pastures as well as adopted a mob-grazing approach to cattle raising.
Ficke has sold cattle genetics as well as consulted throughout the nation and internationally. He is driven by results and in serving 250-plus clients, he has a 99 percent success rate in improving their farming businesses – from increasing profitability to successfully implementing regenerative practices.
“Elevate Ag is about people elevating themselves and valuing themselves enough to know they and their families deserve the best – the best soil, the best crops, the best livestock and the best dreams they can dream. That is how we can elevate agriculture to leave the true legacy it was meant to leave,” Del Ficke.
In addition to his production agricultural pursuits, Ficke has experience managing a medical clinic in Lincoln, Neb. and has also held numerous leadership positions in agricultural associations and in agricultural business. Del and his wife Brenda live on the fifth-generation farm near Pleasant Dale, Neb. with their daughter Emily, son Austin and his wife Alyssa and their daughters Attley, Hayden and Olivia.
