The McKellar family started in the registered cattle business in 1960 near Mt. Pleasant, Texas. Since then we have been involved in multiple breeds. In 2002, we decided as a family to focus solely on Black Angus genetics. Our initial purchase of 425 weaned heifers exclusively from Connealy Angus, between 2002 and 2005, formed the base of what our cow herd is today. These females were bred to breed leading A.I. sires, adapted very well to Northeast Texas and are very efficient mother cows even with the hotter, more humid climate.

In 2006, we began an aggressive embryo transfer program, focusing on top cow families within our operation. These efforts were further intensified from 2009 through 2012 with the addition of more donor cows from Connealy Angus, Whitman, NE.

Our mission continues to be to use all the tools available to produce the highest quality bull for the commercial cow/calf operator, and the highest quality female for fellow registered Angus breeders. Our goal is for our cattle to cover all the bases of fertility, calving ease, growth, maternal ability and carcass traits, and to do so in a visually attractive, efficient package.

On March 19, 2015 we will host our 10th Annual Production Sale. This sale will feature 100 breeding age bulls and 100 bred heifers, pairs, 3n1's and donors. Please note the sale is on the Third Thursday in March, a week earlier than usual. The bulls are available for viewing anytime. The heifers have been developed on a high forage diet to properly develop to be real world mother cows. Most of the heifers will sell with ultrasound sexed pregnancies.

Thank you for your interest in our program. Feel free to e-mail, call, or write should you have any questions.
