Dennis grew up on the home farm. graduated from Kimball High School. went to college and then he and Gretchen returned to Kimball to farm with Dennis's father in 1971. The Kuseske farm has been in the family for several generations, Dennis' father hav- ing purchased the farm from his father in 1940. The original enter- prise was beef cattle which turned into a start to finish hog operation until 1990 when it became strictly a cash crop operation. The pri- mary corn-bean rotation has been supplemented with peas, sweet corn, navy beans, buckwheat and seed corn over the years. The origi- nal purchase of the home farm site and 160 acres has now expanded to about i400 acres of tillable land. Dennis has adapted and imple- mented the latest technology over the years, being the first farmer in the area to install an irrigation sys- tem - a traveling gun that has now grown to 12 center pivot systems. He practices conservation tillage and hasn't used a moldboard plow since the mid-70's. With the use of a GPS system and field mapping, he applies fertilizer according to soil need. The Department of Nat- ural Resources has been allowed permanent easement of 160 acres of swamp and wetland. The Kuseskes are committed to improving agriculture and have been a member of the Farm Bureau since they began farming. Dennis was instrumental in starting the first Dairyland Irrigation Organi- zation in the area and has been a longtime member of the State Irri- gation Board. They were charter members of the Minnesota Corn Processors in Marshall, one of the first plants to begin manufactur- ing ethanol Gretchen taught in the Kim- ball School District from 1971 until her retirement in 2001. Den- nis and Gretchen have six chil- dren: Alissa, lebediah, Adam, Zachary, Amanda and Taylor. The children are known for their posi- tive involvement and achievement in school and community activ- ities, which is a testimony to the support and encouragement they have received from their parents In addition to their diligent atten- dance at school events, they have helped with many school activities and fund raisers. They were one of the founders of the alumni FFA chapter in Kimball which contin- ues to support FFA members and their activities. They have been asked to serve on steering, hiring, curriculum and building commit- tees. The Kuseskes are one of 73 farm families from around the state, one from each participating county, being honored by the University this year. The families receiving honors were selected by their local county extension committees and have demonstrated a commitment to enhancing and supporting agri- culture. "The University of Minnesota is proud to recognize these farm fam- ilies for their contribution .to agri- culture and their communities," said Bev Durgan, dean of Univer- sity of Minnesota Extension. "There is no standard definition of a Min- nesota family farm. The one fac- tor they all have in common is that families work together in mak- ing their farm successful. The farm family work ethic is the major con- tributor to the success of Minne- sota communities and Minnesota's agriculture." The Kuseskes will be presented a certificate at the Stearns County Fair on Sunday, Aug. 2. and will be recognized in a ceremony Thurs- day, Aug. 6, at the annual Farmfest on the Gilfallen Estate near Red- wood Falls, Minn. Along with Farmfest, University units sponsoring this recognition event include University of Minne- sota Extension, Minnesota Agricul- tural experiment Station, the Col- lege of Food, Agriculture and Nat- ural Resources, and the College of Veterinary Medicine.
