Del Ficke

Del Ficke is the manager of Ficke Cattle Company – Graze Master Genetics®. He also connects family
farms and ranches with the resources they need to do proper legacy planning. With more than 35 years
of experience as both an agriculturist and cattleman, Del has developed a one-of-a-kind trademarked
breed of composite cattle, the Graze Master.

Del has spent the last several years transitioning his farming operation back to what he calls, “a more
holistic, sensible and profitable approach that is both modern and historically-based in both concept and
philosophy.” He is restoring the soils to their more natural state and has transformed commodity-driven
cropland back into native pastures as well as adopted a mob-grazing approach to cattle raising. Del has
sold cattle genetics as well as consulted throughout the nation and internationally.

In addition to his production agricultural pursuits, Del has experience managing a medical clinic in
Lincoln, Neb. and he has also held numerous leadership positions in agricultural associations and in
agricultural business. Del and his wife Brenda live on the fifth-generation farm near Pleasant Dale, Neb.
with their daughter Emily, son Austin and his wife Alyssa and their daughter Attley.
