Have you ever wondered what it would be like to step back onto the prairie -- to see it and experience it as when mankind first stepped onto it?
Dubuque Land & Cattle is working hard to provide people with just this type of experience.
Dubuque Land & Cattle began as a dream more than a century ago when Nicholas Weber, a country boy from Luxembourg, came West with his new bride, Mary, seeking land and opportunity.
The Webers prospered and struggled.
Two generations later, the descendants of that land - a brother and sister team - Wallace and Cheryl Weber -- have a new dream for 1,700 acres of crop and grassland: To develop and maintain a sustainable, working ranch that can serve as a national model for centuries to come showing the latest in crop and livestock production, native grassland management and wildlife conservation.
In 2008, Wallace, a retired U.S. Army colonel began the process of donating the 1,700-acre farm to Pheasant's Forever, The Habitat Organization, with the intention of turning the land into a living model to inspire others to manage lands for wildlife in harmony with sustainable agriculture.
At Dubuque Land & Cattle we like to think the memories have created the dreams.
And the dreams become reality.
