Family Roots Run Deep…
At GKB Cattle, everyone is treated like family when they drive down the lane. Cow Families are also important. Gary and Kathy Buchholz both have a cattle background and feel that it is important to honor the cow families that have built their herd through the years. “We truly believe in cow families here and probably have more 10- to 12-year-old cows in our embryo program than we do younger cows,” Gary says. “If they can do their job at that age, they are worth having around.” When the Buchholzes select replacements in the Hereford herd, longevity is very important.

Consistency Year after Year…
We are known for our consistent success year after year in the Hereford business from the success of our breeding program and our Open and junior show success. About 60-70% of the heifers sold go to a junior exhibitor. These show heifer prospects are sold at various consignment sales and, last year, GKB hosted its first Breeders world online heifer sale in April. “It takes a lot of effort to do well in the showring, but if a junior is willing to make the commitment, they can become successful,” says Gary. “If a junior raises their cattle our way, then we will help them with management, including ensuring they calve unassisted the first time.” The Buchholzes hope their guidance will help juniors be in the black within three years of purchasing their project. They allow customers to bring back progeny to be sold in their sales. Those animals carry the GKB prefix along with the kid’s prefix. Learn more.
