Kniebel Farms & Cattle Co.
Kniebel Cattle Company is a fourth generation ranch located in the Flint Hills of Kansas since 1878. Like most operations at that time, the base herd was Hereford; but unlike most operations there were never any calves sold, only market-ready cattle. Originally, finished cattle were driven to the railhead. As years passed these cattle were trucked to Kansas City, sold to packing houses at local sale barns and eventually bought directly by packers. In 1996, we became founding stockholders of U.S. Premium Beef. USPB pays for finished cattle on a grid that rewards the quality we strive to produce. We incorporated Red Angus cattle in 1990 and liked them so well we decided to breed for our own specifications. We use intensive culling, collect carcass data on the culls and use that to help hone our cows to be the type that work in a low input environment with the consumer as the ultimate end market. The cattle we have selected for are thick, moderate, easy keeping, pound producing and high grading—producing Choice carcasses. Contact us for more information on 100% 1A registered 20 month old bulls at our annual sale the first Friday of November, or females for sale at the ranch private treaty.
