Troxtel Farms

Troxtel Farms Troxtel Farms is owned by Elaine & Zane Troxtel and is located in Northeast Alabama. We raise Registe

The farm was started in Fall of 2011 when I got out of graduate school at Auburn University. We started with two commerical cows that were graduation and wedding presents. From there we entered into the Angus breed through purchasing cattle, embryos, and semen. Today we stand right at 150 head and with the purchase of a new farm hopefully will expand into the furture.

Operating as usual

What better way to demonstrate how our cattle perform than by sharing customer feedback?

Zane Troxtel sent us this picture and the following excerpt just a few days ago: "Using Up River was one of the best decisions we made on our farm. The heifers from the 2018 bunch are great cows with their second calves coming now. All slick-haired, great utter, 1250-1300lb cows. Up River is a great bull and I just wanted to say thank you for sharing him. I have sold great bulls out of him and retained very good cows."

Thank you, Zane, we appreciate your business - it is because of the support from buyers, like yourself, that we are able to share bulls like Thomas Up River!

We cannot wait to share more customer feedback on our social media pages! So please send us your reviews of our genetics, we look forward to sharing them here!

Troxtel Farms beef is sold out for the fall, but if anyone is needing anything for the spring please let me know to get on the list. We sell quarter, half, and whole sides of All Natural Angus beef. We usually sell everything by word of mouth, but we want to expand a little more next year. Usually our beef come out to around $4/lb and the quality is far better than what you will find in the stores. The purchasing process is as simple as a phone call to order and pick up your beef when it is ready. Please let us know if we can help in any way! Thanks from Troxtel Farms. Message if interested or call 256-601-0513!

Yay, so proud of you Zane Troxtel. I guess you're my favorite farmer! Love, Elaine Truex Troxtel

This week’s is Young Cattlemen’s Leadership Program (YCLP) Class V student and Dekalb County cattleman Zane Troxtel.

Zane grew up in Geraldine, AL, a small town in northeast Alabama. His great-grandfather and father ran a small farm together, so from a very young age he loved being around cattle. He loved it so much, in fact, that he got his first job at eight-years-old helping his neighbor in chicken houses just to save money to buy cattle. Several years later, following his 12th birthday, he bought my first pair. Shortly after, at age 13, his father decided to get out of the business, so the young cattleman purchased a few of his dad’s cows and rented pastureland from his grandmother. With the help of neighbors with chicken litter and hay, Zane ran his own herd from the time he was 13-years-old until age 19 when he sold out to pursue higher education at Auburn University. He spent five years in the college town as he earned a Bachelor of Science in Poultry Science and a Master of Science in Agriscience Education, worked at several Angus operations and met a girl who would one day become his wife, Elaine.

Post-graduation, he taught agriscience education for a year and moved back home to Geraldine where the newlyweds planted roots and started Troxtel Farms with just two commercial cows in 2011. Over the next couple of years, they were fortunate enough to change career paths to expand the farm to the 180-head operation that it is today. With the help family, the team at Troxtel Farms AIs around 45 registered Angus cows and places embryos each year in their commercial herd.

“I am very fortunate to live my dream every day while maintaining a job with a construction company as a project manager,” he said.

A life-long member of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association, the young cattleman is the current president of the DeKalb County Al Cattleman’s Association where he said he enjoys every minute of leading the 200-strong group. His leadership role is what guided him to become part of the Young Cattlemen’s Leadership Program Class V.

“I always love learning about different aspects of cattle farming, so I knew through the program I would get to see how others farm,” he explained. “I also was told of the relationships my friend made through the program and wanted to network with other younger cattleman around the state that had the same interests as me.”

We’re proud to have you on the YCLP team, Zane. Thank you for your contributions to the Alabama beef cattle industry.

Weaned last group of calves yesterday 28 head avg 704. 602-850 range. It’s exciting to know that these calves are future herd bulls, heifer replacements, and purebred angus beef all from one location. Very good genetics one way or the other!
