About Paula Peterson

My husband, Tom, and I work together on our family farm located north of Waverly, Nebraska. For the last three years, I have been involved full-time with the day-to-day operation of the crop and livestock operation. Previously, I worked at Crete Carrier as a national account customer service representative for 22 years. Our farming operation consists of corn, wheat, soybeans, corn silage and alfalfa. We have a cow/calf operation of approximately 100 pairs (cows & calves). My daughter, Erica, and I have a small sheep flock that are used mainly for Ag in the Classroom visits, petting zoos and other adventures to show kids about sheep. I attended the University of Nebraska and studied ag economics where I met Tom, who is a 3rd generation Nebraska farmer following in his father and grandfather’s footsteps. We have two daughters, Amanda (22), a graduate of Midland Lutheran College in Fremont, and Erica (17), a senior at Waverly High with plans of going to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to study ag journalism. Both girls have been very active in 4-H and FFA, showing livestock, baking, photography and doing public speaking.
