Here at Kitchel's Treaty Branch Farm, we raise corn, cattle, and children; and those children have now become Australian Shepherd breeders. We have two adult females and one stud on the farm; so we have four litters a year.

A little history about Kitchel's Treaty Branch Farm... Located in the foothills of the Wabash River Valley. The farm name originated from a treaty that was signed here on the property by the Miami Indians and the white men at a branch of water where 7 springs meet and flow into the Wabash River.
Our farm carries a heavy influence of Simmental cattle--from purebred to percentage. We have been raising Simmentals since 1976, after the steer I purchased as a 4-H project won our County Fair. From 1989-1994, we competed on the National Stage; we won or had Division Champions at most of those shows. In 1994, our cattle jock left the Show Circuit for the oil fields of Oklahoma, and so we left the show circuit as well. Since 2006, we have been ramping up our cattle to compete at the National level again. We feel our strength is in the production of cattle that can compete in the Show Ring and then go out to your pasture and produce profitable progeny. TBF Cocky Socks is our Herd Matriarch; she is a black, baldy Meyer/New Trend 802 half-blood who has been key to the success of our E.T. program.
