CCSI Farmer Profile: Cameron Mills

Who: Cameron Mills

Where: Cass County

What: Cash crops

Mills has spent his entire life on the farm. When his father decided to move out of the farming business in 1998, Cameron took over and grew the business from 600 to the 3,500 acres they currently manage. He and his wife, Cara, and have been married for 12 years and have four children.  They started no-tilling in 2000 because of the economics involved in an ever-expanding farm operation. After being introduced to cover crops at the No-Till Conference in 2005, they began implementing the practice and have expanded their acreage each year since then.
