About Us

Where We Came From
K-Cow Ranch was established in 1999 ( as a result of the union of Kevin Wirsta and Janice Taylor.) Kevin has been raising purebred Polled Herefords since 1990, while Janice grew up on the family farm (Poplar Bluff Stock Farm) raising purebred charolais since 1981.

Where We Are Now
We presently calve out about 200 head of purebreds, consisting of Polled Hereford, Charolais and Black Angus seedstock.

Where We Are Going
We have made the commitment to be in the cattle industry for the longer haul. At the present time, we are continuing to grow our purebred herds. Our current show focus is on our polled herefords. We have been quietly working on this herd over the past few years.

All 3 breeds that we run are evolving with a focus on moderate frame, thickness and milk production. We background, finish and butcher many of our calves, giving us an opportunity to scrutinize our breeding program very carefully to ensure the bulls we use and sell are giving our buyers the best possible product in the shortest period of time.

    Our Home

We live just South of Stoney Lake in the hills… which makes for some beautiful scenery and challenges with the equipment!

We have 2 daughters ages 13 & 11. They are both active riders and like working with the cattle…. They are both participating in the 4-H program in both Lighthorse and Beef.
