McLean Farms started with a dairy purchased by Ralph and Maxine McLean of rural Benedict, NE in 1939. Ralph taught his children how to mix feed, care for the cattle and run a successful business.
Ralph's son, Jim McLean continued the farming business and added finishing fed cattle to the operation starting with 100 bucket calves in 1961. Today, Jim's interests in cattle feeding and maintaining the family farm are still strong.
Jim's sons are the third generation of McLeans involved in the family business. All of the boys have been involved in the operation one way or another, which have included crop production to maintaining the machinery.
The fourth & fifth generation of the McLeans are learning the cattle business, the importance of a strong work ethic and maintaining the family farm from Grandpa and their dads.
