Bredahl carries on family conservation tradition in Pierce County

TOWN OF CLIFTON--Signs of being conservation-minded are evident around Randy Bredahl's farm.

There have been such signs at the farm along CTH FF in the Town of Clifton for a long time. One of the dams at the place dates back to 1936, said Bredahl, who was named this year's Outstanding Conservation Farmer by the Ellsworth Lions Club and Pierce County Land Conservation Department.

"My dad had a conservation plan," he said, referring to the late Raymond Bredahl. He took over his family's farming operation in 1976 from his father and late mother, Lorraine; he has a sister, Carol, now in Minneapolis, and three brothers, Darwin and Wayne in River Falls, and Larry in Minneapolis.
