About The Lienemanns
Trevor and Torri Lienemann established Lienetics Ranch in 1992 based on Trevor’s desire to get back to his roots in agriculture and the cattle business. Trevor had a background in the commercial sector growing up, but his professional life after college was immersed in his CPA practice. Trevor and Torri bought six aged Angus cows from the local sale barn. The EPDs, production and carcass data, and genetic matings were all new to Trevor. Being a “numbers man,” he was quickly addicted to the “Business Breed.” The operation has grown to having their own annual production sale and being a source for practical cattle with balanced data and usefulness for a diverse customer base.
Lienetics Ranch is very much a family operation and over the years of growth Trevor and Torri have counted on their children, Maci, Taylon, Sydni and Skylar to bring each of their own talents to the operation. As each of them have continued their education and work experience their responsibilities continue to evolve but one thing remains constant and that is the entire families passion and commitment to the Angus breed. Unfortunately, In November of 2018, Trevor passed away. The family decided to carry on the legacy. Torri left the field of education to manage the cattle operation and the Bextra distribution business. Taylon came back to the ranch from his work at R.A. Brown Ranch in Texas, to manage the daily cattle operations. The girls assist with all aspects of the operation (e.g., genetic selection, marketing, labor, etc.). It has been a learning opportunity for all.
Lienetics utilizes several avenues for marketing. Angus Bulls are tested and sold through Private Treaty and other opportunities such as, Midland Bull Test, with numerous honors being earned by Lienetics bulls in the test over the years, one of the highlights was earning the top index award in 2012. Lienetics has also created a customer feeder calf buyback program which allows customers cattle to be fed to harvest with individual carcass data collected, evaluated, and submitted AHIR for Breed improvement, and CAB acceptance rates.
The Lienemanns are passionate about the beef industry and when given the chance they are keen to share their story and how it has benefitted their family and operation. Torri currently serves on the Cattleman’s Beef Board, she sits on the Beef Promotion Operating Committee and is Co-Chair for the Safety & Product Innovation Committee. The Lienemanns continue to be a “go to” stop for the Nebraska Department of Agriculture and Farm Bureau programming. They have hosted visiting dignitaries from China, Turkey, the Netherlands, Ghana, Belarus, and Argentina, and several state and local organizations. The Lienemanns have hosted numerous events showcasing Nebraska Agriculture, Livestock, and the benefits of Quality Angus Genetics. The Lienemanns were chosen to host the 2016 Cattlemen’s Ball of Nebraska (i.e., NE’s largest charity event); they raised over $1 million for cancer research. They have also hosted several events for Certified Angus Beef (2015, 2016, & 2017 CAB Chef Tours) and were honored to get their barn branded as part of the 40th Anniversary Celebration of Certified Angus Beef in 2018. 40 barns from around the country were chosen for this special honor.
Family and friends, as well as others involved in the beef business have been key to the success of the operation and continue to motivate the Lienemanns to further their participation. They feel honored to be a part if this great industry and specifically the ANGUS BREED!
