Welcome to Church View Cattle Co.
Greetings from Church View Cattle Co. We are the Mike and Shirley Thiel family of Black Creek Wisconsin. We are the fifth generation of Thiels to farm here going back to the 1870’s.
My first experience with Longhorn cattle was in the late eighties while attending a roping clinic and seeing longhorn steers. At that point my interest was piqued. With Longhorn cattle few and far between in Wisconsin it wasn’t until the year 2000, with a little encouragement from my wife that the first longhorns were purchased. Since then we have sold breeding stock, longhorn lean beef by the pound from our on farm store to quarters and halves, to using part of our herd in a cross breeding program taking advantage of the natural mothering ability, calving ease and fertility that longhorn cattle are known for.
For the next step in our Longhorn adventure we are selecting our best females for conformation and pedigree and will be breeding them to the best bulls we can to try to produce cattle that are producers, cattle that breed consistent and true.
Browse our site and feel free to give us a call, there’s always time to talk Longhorn. Thanks from the Thiel family.
