A series of roadblocks and transitions led Amber Klassen (Burenheide) to a successful career and a powerful story.
Amber founded ABChickens her freshman year of high school. She began with 200 broiler chickens and grew it to 1,800 broiler chickens by her senior year of college. She also added custom processing to her business portfolio, processing as many as 3,000 birds.
As she grew ABChickens, she continued to incorporate technical skills she acquired from her family’s poultry operation and business skills she learned through the Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship program at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, a program that remains influential in her life today.
