Serving the Finest Beef, While Also Employing and Mentoring Veterans to Give Back
Patrick Montgomery, 28, was a former member of 1st Ranger Battalion. After serving, he decided to enroll in college in order figure out his next steps while living in Columbia, Mo. with his wife.
"After my exit from the military in 2014 I went back to school, at the University of Missouri, to pursue a degree in Animal Science to become a vet," he wrote on the company site. "Somewhere along the way I discovered this wasn't my true calling, and with some more soul searching my next mission was discovered."
KC Cattle Company (KCCC) began when he went to a cattle auction and his wife told him not to buy any cows since they only had a small fenced in backyard. Montgomery ended up purchasing a heifer and a calf, and then the KCCC 's Full Blood 100% Wagyu herd was created.
But instead of keeping them within a fenced in yard, Montgomery was able to purchase property in Weston, Mo. - just 45 minutes away from where he grew up in Parkville, Mo. with his family.
Montgomery chose to hire veterans for his company because he wanted to offer the lessons he learned while serving in the military. His company also makes sure to donate proceeds to organizations that serve veterans- even here in New York. The company was also awarded second place in a FedEx national grant (out of 8300 contestants) as FedEx’s Veteran Business of the year.
