Eric and Tara Gerdes' hearts were deep rooted in agriculture and the beef industry long before they met. Of course, it didn't hurt in 2009 when they married that they shared the same passion for livestock. Both Eric and Tara grew up showing cattle in the state of Iowa. Eric showed Simmentals and was a member of the AJSA Board, serving a year as chairman. Tara grew up showing steers and Maine-Anjou. Now, they live in West Point, Iowa with their son Jaren and daughter Brystol. Gerdes Show Cattle aims to exhibit and sell high performing, high quality cattle backed with honesty and customer appreciation.
