Paul and Brenda Zeug Family

Redwood County
2020

Paul’s family originally ran a dairy operation, but it was transitioned to a farrow-to-finish swine business. The current Zeug farm is a small operation focused on sustaining the rural way of life as much as the land itself. The family raises corn, soybeans and alfalfa in rotation. The farm is mainly a cow-calf beef operation. The Zeugs sell feeder cattle; they finish some and directly sell beef to consumers. Paul also does some custom work and is employed full time on another farm.

Paul and Brenda have three kids: Lance, Lauren and Matthew. Lance builds spreaders for the Artex Company--a fitting job for a kid who once wanted a spreader on top of his birthday cake! Lauren plans to be a physical therapist. She’s currently enrolled at Augustana University in Sioux Falls. Matthew will be a junior at Cedar Mountain in Morgan.

Paul and Brenda were 4-H leaders. Paul is currently superintendent of the 4-H beef project and serves as chair of the Redwood County 4-H Livestock Auction and Purple Ribbon Club. The Zeug family is very involved in the Redwood County Fair.

The Zeugs take part in many Redwood Area Wrestling Association events—Paul was a youth wrestling coach. Lance and Matthew have demonstrated antique farm machinery with Friends of Gilfillan since grade school. The Zeugs are members of St. Michael’s Church.
