Mike Christ began constructing fences, corrals, cattle working facilities, roping arenas and more around his hometown of North Platte when he was in high school and continued doing so for a while after graduating. One of his projects was building 5,000 head addition to a cattle feed yard. When the time was right for him to attend college, Mike earned a bachelor’s in Biology with a Health Science emphasis from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. During college, he continued to learn the construction business by framing houses.
After college, he had a tough decision to make: pursue his goal of attending medical or veterinary school or remaining close to his family. Mike chose family and stuck to what he knew by opening his own construction business, building custom homes, remodeling buildings and constructing new buildings. Mike and his wife, Cathy, have six children. Mike enjoys hunting and fishing. He is part of the Windmill Foundation, which raises funds for people with depression who cannot afford treatment.
