Dan and Deb Walters Family

Big Stone County

Dan’s parents moved from the Hallock area in the fall of 1958 and purchased a farm and homestead from the Broderick family, where the Walters family continues to farm today. In 1982, Dan and his brother, Chuck, started raising feeder-to-finish hogs and eventually farrow-to-finish. Dan also had a small herd of beef cows. In 1986, the Walterses started farming full-time following Dan and Chuck’s father’s retirement.

The Walters farm about 1,350 acres of corn, soybeans, spring wheat and alfalfa. They also seasonally raise a small herd of feeder cattle. Dan still works with Chuck and Chuck’s son-in-law, Marty Breen, during the busy times of the year.

Dan and Deb raised their four children on the farm: Meghan, Jessica, Dustin and Kaitlin. In 1993, they moved to a neighboring farm site where they live today.

Deb works for Essentia Health as an LPN clinic nurse. She serves on the Essential Health Foundation Board and the Stevens County ARC Board and is a past board member of the Stevens County Developmental Achievement Center. Deb is also very involved in Holy Rosary Parish. Dan serves on the Moonshine Township Board and the Big Stone County B.O.A.
