About Danner Farms
Danner Farms specializes in raising identity-preserved grains including non-GMO grains and commercial grain. Danner Farms is also a proud producer of seed corn for Pioneer Hi Bred Int. Danner Farms custom feeds swine and raises club calves and breeding stock from an elite herd of cows that Billie’s daughter Gracie has assembled from her National Award-Winning females. Danner Farms Inc. is also involved in custom farming and manages and supports Excel Grain LLC, owned by Billie, his sister Becky, and his brother-in-law Paul Martin. The farming operation has three full-time employees along with part-time help from Billie’s parents, Louis and Sandy, Payton and Gracie, and some seasonal help. Danner Farms Inc. also oversees care for three 2400-head capacity wean-to-finish hog barns as a contract grower.
Why We Do What We Do
Billie always wondered why he worked so hard; the answer became clear when his children came into the world, and is even clearer today as he rears the two kids as a single parent. Gracie and Payton are very involved in the farm as well as countless school and community activities. Gracie maintains a herd of 25 cows, (past 4-H projects), and continues to be very competitive at state and national levels with her cattle.
