About Us

Shorthorn females at Kaper Cattle Company in years past


We started our herd 40 years ago with genetics from two herds formed in the early part of the 20th century.  Both of these herds used performance and carcass data in their breeding decisions long before these practices were adopted by the mainstream beef industry.  We have continued to breed along these lines and have developed a balanced trait herd that is uniform in type and breeding.  We have always taken a total herd approach in our breeding program and have focused our efforts in developing Shorthorn cattle with maternal efficiency, structural soundness, optimum performance, carcass quality & yield.
