Chad and Cameo Zehnder

Isanti County

Chad and Cameo purchased bare land and built their cattle farm in Stanchfield, MN in 2002.  The farm contains 85 acres which the Zehnders grow alfalfa and grass hay and have pasture for their cattle.  Chad and Cameo take pride in raising Red Angus and Charolais beef cattle that are purebred and sold throughout the United States and Canada.  In addition to helping on the farm, Cameo is an attorney in Roseville and enjoys growing vegetables in the family garden.  Chad is a PHD graduate of the U of M and works as a nutritionist for Purina Animal Nutrition.  He travels extensively around the upper Midwest for his job.  They have 2 daughters; Sydney, age 15, and Natalia, age 3.

The busy farming family is not only involved in 4-H, but also with National Cattleman’s Beef Association, Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Association, American International Charolais Association, and American Red Angus Association.  In addition, Chad just completed a term on the executive board of the Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Associations and is currently on the Executive Committee of the MN Beef Expo.  The Zehnders are also Farm Bureau members and active member of St. Peter and Paul’s Catholic Church in Braham, MN.
