Monthly Lunch meeting

Always a full buffet of both food and Biblical principles.

Ron Braatz, CEO

TOPIC: Business Economics & Financial Blessings

Halydean was founded almost 900 years ago in Scotland. Today it is on the cutting edge for agriculture, supplying beef to China and Korea, and strives to increase the world food supply with the most complete dairy management, analysis and tracking system.

Here at Halydean, we understand true inter-generational wealth.  When we say, “we are in this for the long run,” we really mean it.  Halydean was originally founded almost 900 years ago.  Our opportunity is to make the farms work for the families that own them, not the other way around.

I was raised on a dairy farm, and when I was 18 I took a full time job cutting trees six days a week, dawn to dark.  Compared to working at my family’s farm, it was the easiest job I’d ever had!  I could quit at dark!  I thought it was great.  So I understand the amount of work that it takes to make a dairy farm work.  That’s why I believe in Halydean Corporation.  We need each other.  No dairy owner should exist to work for his farm.  It should be the other way around.  By merging our resources together, we can put the farms to work for the farmers, improve farm efficiency, and expand our family legacies while increasing the world’s food supply.

Moving beyond production, management analysis software, and commodities markets expertise, Halydean Corporation is in the process of listing its stock to trade on Wall Street, for the ultimate in shareholder benefits.  Even though this is a time of great change for Halydean, our core business model will always remain the same: land and livestock.

We are blessed to have Ron come and share his insights with CBL!
