From then to now...

ALONZO REICHEL WAS THE FIRST TO BRING HALTER BROKE COWS AND DOGS TO REICHEL FARMS IN ABOUT 1928.

 

NOW, HIS GRANDSON, GARY, SHOWS CATTLE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. RF POWERBALL AND RF POWERTRAIN WERE THE COW/CALF CHAMPIONS AT THE 2005 MISSOURI STATE FAIR JUNIOR SHOW.

Cole Schlup, Grandson of John and Linda Reichel exhibited the Reserve Champion Overall Charolais steer at the Alpha Gamma Rho Classic February 8, 2009 in Columbia, MO. Pictured here with Cole and his steer, Bob, are his family, Jeff, Julie, Camryn and Chase Schlup, grandparents, John and Linda Reichel and his uncle, Gary Reichel who raised the calf, a Buck Cherry out of a Charolais X-bred cow.

August Reichel purchased the McGirk farm in 1900 and enough land to comprise a 50 acre tract and Reichel Farms began. His son, Alonzo, bought the north farm in 1952 increasing the acreage to almost 200 acres. In 2005, Alonzo's son, John and his grandson, Dean, bought another 40 acres and grandson, Gary rented over 350 acres to have room to expand and improve the purebred and commercial cow operation. The Reichels' invite you to browse their cow, bull, and cattle for sale pages. Both Dean and Gary are trained A.I. technicians and Gary attended Embryo Transfer School at Ag Tech in Kansas. He will begin flushing and implanting embryos this fall.
     Showing cattle at the local and all the way to the national level has become a major part of the Reichel Farm operation. As a result of Gary's desire to help fellow 4 H and FFA members with their beef projects, he and his high school friend, Kevin Johansen, founded the Calf quest Club Calf Sale held the first Saturday in December. Check out www.calfquest.com to find out more about this year's sale. Reichel Farms purchased their first Simmental herd sires in 1976 and have continued to use this breed as the backbone of their program. They also have added purebred Angus to their program and soon will expand to Shorthorn and Red Angus. Their slogan, "Striving to Improve" keeps them working to constantly better their herd.
    Grandchildren, Cole and Camryn Schlup, continued the success in the show ring as both exhibited their Simmental calves at the local fair. Cole is five and Camryn is two. So the tradition started by the oldest son Dean, and then the youngest son, Gary is moving into the future with the youngest members of the family.

RF Miss Adelaide and RF Fastbreak were named the Reserve Champion
Cow/Calf pair at the 2004 Missouri State Fair Junior Show.
Joining Gary in the picture are Dean Reichel, Mom and Dad Reichel, Camryn Schlup,
and Jay McKee, fitter.


Going to the 2006 Missouri State Fair in Sedalia, MO was Gary's last time to show as a Junior.  He took eight head and had the help of his older brother Dean, his Dad, and friends, Jay, Brandon, Kevin, Jason and Ashley to help him.

"Buck" was the official M-ASS-COT at Reichel Farms.
His official duty was to keep coyotes away during calving season, but also greeting those that came to visit, and was especially good for finding ALL open gates. Buck lived a long and happy life, but the hard winter was just too much for him and he passed away.
We miss him, but know he is now running and kicking in "Rainbow Heaven", a much better place. Buck, thank you for the memories!
1988 - 2007

~Buck went to a better world on February 6, 2007~
~He was over 20 years old and his antics and brays will be missed.~
