The KP Ranch,
owned and operated by Kenny & Ali Petersen was established in
1992, located in
eastern Nebraska about an hour north of Omaha near Summit Lake,
running a commercial beef production cow/calf operation.
the inability to expand our operation forced us to liquidate the
entire commercial herd and we then purchased our first Miniature
Hereford cattle. That was the beginning of a whole new world for
us here at the KP Ranch. Miniature Hereford cattle were NEW to the
cattle industry and no one had ever heard of them. In an effort to
promote the breed and educate the general public, we began to take
cattle to shows to display them with other Hereford cattle. In
1998 we showed at the first true Miniature Hereford show in the
USA at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, where we had both the
Grand Champion Miniature Hereford Bull and the Grand Champion
Miniature Hereford Female. Many many more Grand and Reserve
Champions have followed.
The dedication to
the breed and the industry has grown and the show success of
the KP Ranch has continued. KP Ranch is the show
calf capitol of
the Miniature Hereford world.
Home of the
champions, past, present and future.
