Midland Radio has long been partners with KC Cattle Company. We spoke to Kale Swing, VP of Sales and Product Development about how two-way radios help their operation run smoothly.
Patrick Montgomery founded KC Cattle Company in 2016. Montgomery served in the Army as a Ranger with the 1st Ranger Battalion.
His goal was to take the lessons he learned during his time in the military and bring it to his farm. Montgomery wanted to raise superior quality Wagyu Beef for the same people and communities he once served as an Army Ranger.
The company has since grown to a staff of five including Kale Swing.
“Initially when Patrick started the company I was one of his first customers. I just wanted to support another veteran-owned business. When my buddies from the military would come into town, I’d purchase some of the Wagyu beef so that we could have a good dinner together.”
Overtime, his friendship with Montgomery grew and led to a job opportunity.
Swing says their military experience makes them unique.
"We’ve been able to develop a culture here that is similar to what we experienced when we were in the military. That culture has allowed us to grow this company and develop this business into a household name in Kansas City and establish a customer base all over the country," he said.
KC Cattle Company ships to all 50 U.S. states. As of this summer, there were 40 cows on the farm.
