Fred Hustedt was born at Longwood, Clark
County, July 19, 1896. A year later he accompanied his parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Henry Hustedt, to their new home in Chicago. He later
attended the public schools there, and was reared and confirmed in
the Lutheran faith. At the age of 15 he came to the town of Rock.
He entered the employ of Albert Paulson, who at that time operated
a large dairy farm. Here Mr. Hustedt received his start as a
Guernsey breeder, by purchasing a purebred heifer, Glenwood’s
Jennie’s Fantine, which is still in his possession, and the
foundation cow of his herd. He remained with Mr. Paulson seven and
one-half years, after which he became herdsman for C. E. Blodgett
at the Glencoe Guernsey Farm. The following year he accepted a
position at the Marshfield Branch Experiment Station. In 1920 he
purchased the Hans Jensen farm, in the town of Rock, where he has
since made his home, building a fine herd of registered and high
grade Guernseys. Besides being an officer of the county Guernsey
Breeders Organization, he is also a director of the Nasonville
Club, and a leader in 4-H Club work.
He was married March 12, 1918, to Miss
Mary Hansen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Hansen, pioneer
residents of the town of Rock. They have two children: Omar 8 and
Charlotte Ann 5.
Politically, he is a Republican. Fraternally, he is affiliated with the Fraternal Reserve Association. His hobby is fitting cattle for the showing.
