Episode 208: Jacob Bueckert: So Many Opportunities In Agriculture

In this week’s first episode of #farmerchat on The Impact Farming Show, Tracy speaks with Jacob Bueckert from Driland Feeders in Warner, Alberta.

For anyone on social media, you will know Jacob as a Canadian farmer who is always ready with a sarcastic joke, laughter, and a kind word of encouragement. He is also always promoting the beef industry.

But what you don’t know about Jacob is his unbelievable life story. It’s a fascinating one.

In today’s chat:

  • Jacob shares his life story that started in Mexico and involves an exciting movie-like immigration story from Mexico to the USA and then eventually from the United States to Alberta, Canada, where he now resides.
  • Jacob shares how his family started with just a few cows, rented land, and grew his operation into a substantial feedlot operation with 30 employees. He shares about significant challenges, nearly calling it quits a few times, and the wins he has experienced over the years.
  • Jacob shares about his family, personal tragedy, and how one tragic event, while devastating, has strengthened him, his relationships, and his faith.
  • Tracy asks Jacob about the threats and opportunities he sees in the agriculture industry.
  • Jacob shares his thoughts on what the agriculture industry should/could be doing differently.
  • Tracy and Jacob wrap the episode up with a lightening round of personal questions, including books that have changed his life, the best and worst advice he has received, and what advice he would give the next generation looking to start farming.

You will not want to miss Jacob’s unbelievable story of faith, perseverance, and a love of agriculture.
