Finances or farming is part of life for Dan and Carl DeWall

Carl (left) and Dan DeWall (right) are comfortable on their Pocahontas County farm near Gilmore City. While the DeWalls no longer milk, they do raise Holstein beef cattle, buying them as calves and finishing them out at around 1,300 pounds. Humboldt Independent photo.

Holstein cattle have been part of the DeWall family farm for a long, long time.

Only now rather than milking Holsteins, Dan and Carlton (Carl) DeWall are raising them for meat.

The father/son combination not only farm and raise cattle together, they are in a business partnership as well. The DeWalls recently relocated their financial planning business from Fort Dodge to Gilmore City.

“We’ve had dairy for a long time,” Dan DeWall said. “The bloodlines date back to my grandfather’s time.”
