Farmers on the Rise, Tyler & Katie Fraser

Tyler and Katie Fraser

Farm Credit awarded a total of $100,000 to beginning farmers through the Farmers on the Rise Award Program on December 7, 2023. Tyler and Katie Fraser of Clarion County, PA are one of ten recipients.

Tyler and Katie are beginning farmers who own and operate Fraser Cattle Company, on just over 60 acres. They started with four cows, a bull, and a gilt in 2020. Over the past three years, they've expanded to a breeding herd of 19 Hereford cattle including cow/calves, yearling heifers and bulls, ten Angus-cross feeders, one bred crossbred sow, 13 feeder hogs, 30 laying hens, 42 broiler chickens, and a home garden.Katie and Tyler Fraser

Both Katie and Tyler have extensive farming experience. Katie has worked in beef and dairy operations, and currently works as a Program Technician for the USDA Farm Service Agency. Tyler has worked on large grain farms, a dairy farm, and is a heavy equipment operator. They are planning to construct a corral and a chute system for their cattle and purchase ewes to start a sheep flock. Additionally, they are hoping to winterize some existing shelters for the hogs and sheep.
