Will Frazee is a Mills County 4-H alum coming out of the powerhouse Future Feeders Club. His projects focused on cattle and crops which in turn set the stage for his future career path as a farmer owner/operator.
Mills County has a special 4-H club for high school members called the “Teen Club”. Every 4 years the Teen Club took a citizenship trip to Washington DC. From a long bus ride on that historic trip in 1975 he began a relationship with another 4-H alum, Deb, who is now his wife and farm partner of 37 years.
Will attended Iowa State University graduating in 1979. He and Deb returned to the family farm in West Township of Montgomery County where they have lived ever since.
The Frazee family added a son, Curt, and a daughter, Krista, and that is how the 4-H activity began in Montgomery County as a parent, club and project leader, fair board member, committee member and chair of 4-H and Youth committee for many years.
Now Frazee’s grandchildren are enrolled in the Montgomery County 4-H program.
Will and Deb reside on the family farm which was designated as a Century Farm in 2015.
Will has been active in state and national beef organizations and travelled the world promoting Iowa products. He is currently serving as a director of Iowa Farm Bureau. So back to the beginning a young boy wanted to grow up to be a farmer, and he did with the help of family, friends, and 4-H.
