Paul F. Engler and William D. Farr are the inaugural inductees into the newly established Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame (CFHF). Engler, 79, is the founder and chairman of Cactus Feeders, the largest privately owned fed-cattle producer in the U.S. Meanwhile, Farr, who passed away in 2007 at 97, was a Colorado agriculture pioneer known for his cattle-feeding entrepreneurship and environmental stewardship.

Engler and Farr were chosen by fellow cattle feeders for the honor. They were among 12 distinguished individuals nominated by members of the cattle-feeding industry.

Established to honor visionary men and women who have made lasting contributions to the cattle-feeding industry, a virtual CFHF museum is under development. It will showcase the history of the U.S. cattle-feeding industry and recognize the entrepreneurs and visionaries who contributed – and continue to contribute – to its success.
