Welcome to Barrett Cattle, a registered Angus seedstock provider. Our primary focus is to raise good, solid cows. Each cow must breed and raise a calf… have the mechanics to maintain herself… and the genetics to offer something better in her offspring. With that at the forefront of our decisions, the mother cow is the foundation of our operation.
Our family settled in this area in 1865. 150 years later, our children are the 6th generation to be involved in agriculture along the banks of Prairie Creek. Our operational goal is to utilize more grass on fewer acres by reclaiming pastureland from overgrown wooded areas. When our families settled in Northeast Kansas, the land was prairie-based, with hardwood trees along the creeks and rivers. Tilling of the ground, followed by lack of brush management, allowed invasive trees to overtake the landscape. As we work to reclaim the lost grassland, acreage that was sitting idle is now sustaining cattle through rotational grazing methods.
