The Dayton Rotary Club was given a presentation over the LCC (L. Chachere Cattle) company which was established in 2002. Owners Dr. Luke Chachere and his son, Dr. Lukas Chachere are proud of their family-oriented business. The Ranch Manager is the nephew of Dr. Luke Chachere, Wesley Walker. According to Chachere, they started the business to produce quality show cattle for the youth in the surrounding area, educate clients on how to properly care for, fit, and exhibit show cattle, and to provide quality show cattle and train clients to compete at any levels.
Interesting facts include that they have over 100 head of breeding cattle and that they sell through several online sales and private treaty. Dr. Chachere is very proud that it is a family-oriented business and that all are Dayton High School graduates. Dr. Lukas Chachere is the attending Veterinarian, Jonathan Chachere serves as the business’ Embryologist and Wesley Walker is the Show Cattle Specialist. The first champion at the Dayton FFA Show was in 2013 with numerous other champions since in various shows around Texas and other states. Through this endeavor, they have created a ‘Two Brands, One Dream’ (TBOD) annual field day for their students/clients. “We are able to share our knowledge and usually have at least two more knowledgeable show people to assist that day. Last year we had over 70 kids and parents participate in the TBOD Field Day. This field day is provided at no charge with the only requirement being the purchase of one of our calves in the previous year,” stated Chachere. During their field day, it allows them to see the calves they have sold, train the kids on how to wash, groom and fit their cattle, provide showmanship training and have a showmanship contest by age divisions.
The Dayton Rotary, who is a service organization, loved the presentation as it highlighted just one more way that the Dayton community has a passion for education, growing our children and serving our community through a family-oriented service business.
