Every farm needs a windmill

“Where there is a barn and silo there has to be a windmill,” said Lloyd Beethe who recently installed a windmill on his farm located ¾ of a mile east of Tecumseh on Highway 136. Beethe and his cousin, Howard, installed
the windmill in about two weeks. Every once in a while, Beethe’s grandson, Andrew would help out as well. The 29 foot windmill consists of an eight foot wheel and a 21 foot wooden tower. Beethe purchased the wheel
from Randall Rinne. He knew the wheel worked because he saw it in operation on Rinne’s farm. Don Koehler found the water pump for Beethe to use to pump water from the windmill into a water tank.
