Take a pasture tour with Tyler Jankord, and his passion for the beef cattle industry is quickly revealed. A glance at any cow, he can tell you her genetics, the performance of her previous calves and what he plans to breed her to in the upcoming weeks. At 19 years old, Jankord is already well on his way to establishing himself as a source for quality Angus genetics, a goal he has worked hard for.

Jankord’s operation dates back to the 1940’s and was passed to his parents, Wayne and Carmen, in 1988. In 1990, the same year Tyler was born, they purchased their first set of cows, and the rest is history. Jankord grew up helping his dad do chores, petting the feeder calves while standing in the feed bunk and vowing to one day be a beef producer himself. With his passion and youthful enthusiasm, he has strived to do just that.
