About Us

This is our story

Willow Creek Cattle Company is a second generation farm in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota owned and operated by the Kevin Hackett family.

The farm has been in operation for over 100 years and has transitioned from a dairy farm to a beef operation. One of the first beef calves was born alongside the creek, under the willow trees. At the time, we did not know "Willow" would be the foundation of what we strive for today. Willow lived a long, productive life of 19 years. No matter what circumstances were that year; weaned one of the heaviest calves. Willow's temperament was such that our kids or guests could not walk by without a little "scratch" of attention. That disposition and production are carried out through the herd today!

THE CATTLE:  We want our females productive, sound, eye appealing and profitable. We want our bulls to grow fast, have a great disposition and have trouble free calves that get up and nurse without much assistance. We strive to breed cattle to fit their environment at a low cost and high gain.

THE LIFESTYLE:  We love being part of the agriculture community. We love taking care of the land the cattle graze, the crops and animals we raise and the place we call home. We love the lifestyle, the outdoors and the opportunities it allows when bringing up a family.

THE PEOPLE:  The beef business is a people business. We love talking about what we do, our goals and dreams. We want you to be just as excited about our cows as we are. We understand and value our role in your future in the cattle business. Come on over!
