Curt Wieczorek was named NALF Limousin Promoter of the Year and the 2023 annual meeting and convention in Oklahoma City.
Curt’s involvement and financial contributions have been tremendous with the launch of the North American Limousin Research Foundation research project being conducted in Montana in conjunction with South Dakota State University.
Mark Anderson, Executive Director for the North American Limousin Foundation, stated, “The research project currently being conducted would not be possible without the help and financial contributions made by NALF members. Curt and his family have not only contributed substantially to the project, but his role in helping hands-on with the project in addition to coordinating cleanup bulls, breeding schedules and help at the ranches was vital to the success of the program.”
Wieczorek Limousin is a fourth-generation operation located in southeastern South Dakota. Curt & Leanne Wieczorek, Ryan & Danielle, Emily, Bradley, Megan and granddaughters, Josie & Isla. Their main headquarters is located on the original tract of land homesteaded in 1882 by ancestors who immigrated here from Germany. While the original sod house no longer exists, the values that comprised that generation still do – faith, family, and work ethic.
They have utilized artificial insemination since 1968 to advance the quality of our cow herd. In 1972, they expanded our existing multi-breed herd with Limousin sires, such as Dandy, Éclair, and Prince Pompadour. The ease of calving coupled with the calf vigor and muscularity from those first matings sold them on the breed. From that point forward, they switched exclusively to Limousin on the entire herd and began to build the purebred herd that currently grazes our pastures.
Their inaugural bull sale was hosted in 1981. They are proud to have several customers that bought bulls at that first sale who are still purchasing WZRK genetics today. Taking care of people and making sure they are satisfied has always been their number one goal.
