Calvin Coolidge had just taken office, “The Great Gatsby” was newly published, and the Chrysler Corporation was founded.
Two brothers, Otto and Bill Brakebush, bought a truck, left their family farm, and started hauling poultry, eggs, cows, and pigs to plants in Wisconsin. Several years later they built an egg packing plant and a chicken processing plant. Brakebush Brothers, Inc. was on its way.
Otto’s son Carl is President and the third generation of the Brakebush family is already deeply involved in management positions within the company.
Some eighty-plus years later, you’ll find that Brakebush still thrives on the solid, innovative spirit of its founders.
We have hundreds of people working in both our original plant and a sizeable plant addition, built in 2006, that helps ensure that we remain a state-of-the-art chicken processor.
All so that we can continue Making the Chicken that Makes Your Menu.™
- Growing up in Rock County and living in Milton. Bought my first sled which was a 1972 Rupp Nitro for $200? Always enjoying the snow with family and friends, but in Rock County the snow came and went fast. The short winters never taking away my love for the sport and the outdoors. After finishing school I joined the US Navy and served aboard the USS Wisconsin as a Machinist Mate. After getting out of the service. My first trip was to Jim Dandy Motorsport a local snowmobile dealership in Janesville to buy a 1992 Arctic Cat 650 Wildcat. You will still find me on my 1998 Arctic Cat or out grooming.
Later I joined the Milton Snow Riders Snowmobile Club working on the trails and fundraisers like co-chairing for the Junction Function every year in the fall was a great time to promote snowmobiling. I enjoyed helping every year with the snowmobile safety class. Then has the Club Rep. for Rock County I later became the Rock County Snowmobile Alliance President until 2002.
Moving north I became a member of the Berlin River Riders for a short time. But I served as the Club Rep. for Waushara County. A year later I move to Neshkoro. I joined the Neshkoro White River EZ Riders Snowmobile Club. I became the Club Rep right away for Marquette & Waushara County. In 2003 I became the Club President which I still hold to date. Also in 2003 I became the Marquette County Snowmobile Association President until 2011. I have served has County Rep. for the AWSC for Marquette and Waushara Counties. Now I’m the AWSC Director for Marquette County since 2008. I have served on the Legislative, Trails, and now Promotions & Publicity Committees for the AWSC.
As President we have strengthen our clubs and increased tourism by better promoting our county. We were the first to use Discover Wisconsin to bring attention to snowmobiling to our county. Later I presented Discover Wisconsin to the Promotion & Publicity Committee for the AWSC. Now the AWSC is working with Discover Wisconsin to produce 3 TV shows. We have successfully run the Lake of the Woods OUTLAW Grass Drags for 9 years. The last seven year I have been a Lead Snowmobile Safety Instructor. I'm also very proud of my step daughter Bryanna Bucholtz with her hard work at school, basketball and snowmobiling (a former AWSC Youth Rep for Rock County).
