Millenkamp Story

Bill Millenkamp was raised in the Midwest, where the Millenkamp name is well-known in the cattle industry. In 1991, while still a teenager, Bill moved to Oregon and went to work for the DeJong family. It was there he married Susie DeJong and with her made plans to move to Idaho to start a cattle business.


With just 40 acres in Jerome, seven calves, and a small operating line of credit, they began the calf raising operation in 1996. Today, Bill, Susie, and their four children live on the calf ranch and are all involved in the operations.
