It's ALL about family
Kara-Kesh Holsteins officially began in 2005 with the purchase of our first heifer calf, Platte-Vu Advent Sara-Red.
Sara is the foundation to over 50% of our herd. In 2007 we relocated from the Rochester, MN area
to Thief River Falls, MN and began dairying on our own.
The herd is 100% Red or *RC and our breeding goal is to succeed in the show ring with well balanced cattle who
have deep pedigrees. The cattle are housed on straw bedded packs and cows are milked in a 6 stall flat-barn parlor.
