Holy Cow Beef Snacks

Nathan Schultz

As a Senior in High School, Nathan Schultz participated in a class called CEO. The class taught all aspects of business development and concluded with starting your own business. From this, Holy Cow Beef Snacks was born. Nathan pursued his passion of finding healthy snack options for active lifestyles. Due to the demand for his beef sticks, Holy Cow continued even after the class ended. Following graduation from St. Anthony High School in rural Effingham, Illinois, Nathan began wholesaling beef sticks to local golf courses. This later expanded to convenience stores, meat markets, and many of the local bars. Nathan is currently a student at McKendree University in Lebanon, Illinois majoring in business and competes on the Men’s Golf Team. 

Holy Cow Beef Snacks started as a high school project and has turned into a thriving business providing high quality meat snacks for people of all ages. 

Nathan Schultz was a participant in the Effingham County CEO Class of 2019.
