Steven and Lori Kill
Steven is residing on the farm where he grew up. His parents started farming in the 40s when hard work and some livestock would get a person through the hard times. On a few acres, Steve’s parents raised cows, pigs, horses, chickens, ducks, and kids. Today, Lori and Steve own and operate a cattle finishing operation in Morris. They buy calves in the fall and winter and sell when they are market ready in 9-12 months. They also raise corn, soybeans, wheat, and alfalfa. With the crops, they still have chickens, ducks, and 4-H animals. Steven and Lori have three children, Lauren, Shauna, and Kurtis. All three kids attend Morris Area Public School and help on the farm in one way or another. The Kill’s feel very blessed to farm in the United States, where they can provide safe, economical and healthy products for the public to enjoy.
The Kill’s are members of the Horton 4-H Club and enjoy being involved as Swine Specie supervisors at the Stevens County Fair. The family is also members of the West Central Cattlemen’s Association. Additionally, Steve is a member of the Hancock Co-op Board and Lori is the Horton Township Clerk.
