Stephens Beef Cattle
Simmental & Angus
Stephens Beef Cattle is a family owned operation located 50 miles northeast of Lexington in Ewing, Kentucky.
Jeff and Angie have two children that grew up actively involved in the farming operation. Morgan currently works as a speech-language pathologist at Fleming County Schools. Morgan and her husband, Will Blaydes, recently moved back to Ewing and live on the family farm. Will is a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture with a major in Animal Science and minor in Agriculture Economics. Will plays a vital role in managing herd health, breeding decisions, and show and sale preparation.
Jordan is graduate of Black Hawk College in Galva, Illinois where he was a member of the Livestock Judging Team under Coach Blake Bloomberg. He is currently employed by Four Corners Farms in Illinois and still competes showing cattle on the local, state and national level.
We have been involved with raising cattle for many years. Today, we maintain 75 Angus, SimAngus, and Simmental cows and 100 commercial cows that are used as recipients for embryo transplant. Females are marketed through consignment sales and private treaty. Bulls are marketed through our annual Genetic Advantage bull sale the last Saturday in March at the Paris Stockyards.
Our business expands beyond the cattle operation with Stephens Hay & Straw, LLC. This consists of about 100 acres of alfalfa and alfalfa orchard grass that is produced and sold to the thoroughbred race horse industry. Our market exceeds what we are able to produce so we also buy and resale several hundred tons of hay and straw each year.
Our goal is to produce easy fleshing, functional cattle, that will work in any setting, whether in the show ring or out in the pasture.
