Ron and Sharon Dotzler
Four generations are currently involved with the Ron and Sharon Dotzler Family farm located in Aitkin, MN. The Dotzler Farm was established in 1941 by Ron’s parents, Frank and Sara Dotzler. Ron’s parents started the farm with dairy cattle, but later switched over to beef cattle. When Ron and Sharon bought the farm from Frank and Sara in 1996, they continued on with the beef operation with their children and grandchildren. Today, the Dotzlers have 100 head of beef. They also grow hay and small crops.
Outside of the farm, Sharon is a director of the Aitkin County Fair Board, an Extension Committee member, the Aitkin Township Treasurer, and a 4-H leader. The whole Dotzler family is involved with the Central MN Cattlemen’s Association. They are also proud supporters of 4-H and the Aitkin County Fair.
