Our farm has a small feedlot where we feed out the prior year's calf crop while retaining a couple of yearling heifers for replacements. So, an additional emphasis is put on leanness of FAT, REA and IMF traits in our AI and herd bull selection. We should have around 47 calves this year sired by 9 different bulls which include a couple of ET calves. Main ancestry is P606 progeny with the younger stock being Mo Magic progeny. We have a few cows and top yearling heifer prospects for sale if you’re looking to expand. We are honored that you could attend our stop on the tour!

Prior to having Hereford cattle, we had a Registered Holstein herd. Our herd currently consists of offspring we had purchased from a variety of herds throughout Wisconsin. We have a diversified group of pedigrees and frame sizes and are a TPR breeder. We AI our entire herd and then follow up with our herd bull, Lake International 311U; who is a Battle Chief son. We strive for ideal udders, quality mothering and gentle dispositions. Our children enjoy taking an active role in the cattle, from selecting AI sires, vaccinating, calving and showing. We have exhibited at the Wisconsin State Fair, Washington County Fair, World Beef Expo, Badger Kick-Off and Jr. Nationals. We look forward to visiting with you and hope you enjoy the tour this year.

continue to do well at the local and national levels. We have done well in the show ring with purchased and home raised show cattle. We had Supreme Champion Heifer at the Wisconsin State Fair in 2006. This heifer went on to win reserve division at the National Western Livestock Show in 2007. One major accomplishment for Kegley Farms was when our home raised heifer won Supreme Champion Heifer at the Wisconsin State Fair in 2007. We continue to strive toward our many other goals of winning at the other national shows. Kegley Farms is excited to announce that they will be hosting a reproduction sale in the fall of 2012, the Badger Southern Select Sale.

We have been living our dream since 1976, when we purchased this farm. The love for Herefords began with a 4-H project, when their sons, Jeff, Brent and Sid wanted to show cattle. Over the years the farm grew to 40 acres with an additional 40 acres rented. We use top AI sires on our 27 cows. We also have 2 bulls and 10 heifers. The herd is the best since we started our dream. Retirement makes it possible to focus full time on the herd and work with the grandchildren, Jena, Morgan, Brittany, Nicole, and Dawson who also help on the farm and enjoy showing. The Wiswell Farm is a family affair with all involved striving to make it better and live their dream.
