The plan was always for Nick Oertwich to come back to work on the family farm near Pilger after attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
But following graduation, Oertwich stayed in Lincoln to work. Now, with the financial incentive that raising chickens for Costco promises, he plans to move back to the area to work on the family farm.
Nick’s father, Doug, who serves on the Stanton County Planning Commission, found out about the opportunity when he was asked to serve on an advisory board for Lincoln Premium Poultry, the company that is building a large processing plant in Fremont that will provide broiler chickens for Costco.
