About Kristen Eggerling

Growing up, both my husband, Todd, and I were intensely interested in agriculture. Today, my husband and I along with my parents, operate a farm and ranch near Martell, Nebraska, on the land that was homesteaded by my family in 1873. In addition to raising two children, I am heavily involved in the day-to-day care of the cattle and crops with the guiding philosophy to improve the farmland and rangeland we operate. My family and I recognize that an agricultural operation with close proximity to a city such as Lincoln, can serve as a positive example of the proactive steps taken by the majority of farmers and ranchers to ensure a healthy, sustainable environment in the present and for future generations.
