Jim and Lynda Fenton, founders of Fenco Farms, have long history in Florida’s agriculture beginning in the citrus and strawberry business as well as keeping a small cattle operation. As markets in Florida began to change, The Fentons saw a coming need to turn that farmland into pastureland to grow the cattle operation. As the citrus industry took a hit, an opportunity developed to acquire more land to allow for a more rapid increase in cattle production. Fenco Farms now have pastures throughout beautiful Central Florida, located in Citrus, Lake, Pasco and Sumter Counties. By the end of 2021 they will have pastures in South Georgia also.
They have strived to develop, over the last 30 years, three main divisions which are Registered Brangus, Club Calf, and Commercial herds. Genetic data have been used to enhance the best traits in each breeding to fit our goals and the needs of our customers.
A message from Jim & Lynda,
“This is a great industry and we have a great story to tell. We are very proud of the growth our farms have shown and we are excited to be part of the future in the cattle industry.
Better data will unlock NATURE’S SECRETS! We want to know as much or more about our 2,000 head of cattle then we did with a herd of 50.
We also want to thank our great team of employees, they have embraced our vision and have become our extended family.”
