Welcome! Located in Kalona, IA, JB Cattle Company raises and sells miniature cattle, miniature cows, miniature calves, as well as miniature bucking bull stock. Miniature cattle sustain the ECONOMIC viability of a farm operation; enhance the quality of life for farmers and society as a whole. JB Cattle Company supports sustainable agriculture practices and is actively engaged in a form of sustainable agriculture which is using animal production practices which have a site-specific application: a less grazing acreage need.
I also just wanted to say that just because it says miniature bucking bulls and cows doesn’t mean that all our animals are crazy or temperamental or anything like that. We have several levels of temperament. Calves grow by the way you raise them. So when you buy calves from us, they will be raised to the way that you would like even the bulls.
Respectful treatment of our miniature cattle is a constant, continual day to day practice at JB Cattle Co. Our cattle are raised under foot (pasture) which encourages the cattle to respond to us, our young daughter and neighbors with gentleness. This gentleness also fosters the cattle to do little or no damage to our fences. Our cattle are perfect proportion, just smaller, eye appealing and BEAUTIFUL.
JB Cattle Co. sells breeding stock, weaned calves, bottle calves, beef steers, and bucking bull stock. These miniature cattle are admired for their ability to withstand many climates and consistently maintain good body condition on grass and hay. When placed in finishing programs both grass finished as well as grain finished cattle produce outstanding carcasses that are the envy of other breeds.
