David and Ann Wendinger
The farm site where David and Ann currently live was purchased by David’s grandparents Otto and Florence Wendinger and then transferred to David’s parents Wallace and Shirley Wendinger in 1954. Wallace and Shirley have four children, twins David and Donald, Sharon, and Barbara. After David married Ann in 1981, they moved to the present site and Wallace and Shirley moved to a home in New Ulm, MN. Wallace and Shirley continued to farm for many years and then slowly began the transfer process of the current operation to their sons David and Don. Today David and Don have 450-500 head of cattle on feed where they raise them from birth to slaughter. They also finish hogs and raise corn, soybeans, and alfalfa on 680 acres. David and Ann have three children. Son Matthew and his wife Leigh live in New Ulm. Son Eric and his wife Jennifer live on a beef farm in Fairfax, MN. Daughter Katie and her husband Charlie Johnson live in Sibley County.
David and Ann are deeply rooted in their St. George Catholic Church in rural New Ulm. They both are active in the administrative, musical, maintenance, and fundraising efforts of their faith community. They are also volunteers with 4-H, New Ulm FFA, and New Ulm Farm City Hub Club. In addition, David is on the Nicollet County Planning and Zoning Board and is a past Central Livestock Board of Director.
