About Us

Jim and Ann Werner Registered Angus is a family operation.  Both Jim and Ann grew up on farms and are fortunate that their four children and their families are all part of the business. 

Our Children:

Craig and Becky (Werner) Hays--Craig is from Mississippi, where he grew up on a ranch.  He later went to Mississippi State University and graduated with an Animal Science degree.  He earned his masters degree in ruminant nutrition from Auburn University.  Craig is the owner of Critical Insights, a beef cattle ultrasound scanning business.  Becky graduated from Northwest Missouri State University with a degree in Animal Science.  She now owns UltraInsights Processing Lab, a centralized ultrasound processing lab for interpreting ultrasound images. 

Craig and Becky live in Maryville, MO, where they operate their ultrasound businesses. 

Will and Bonnie (Werner) Larson-- Will grew up on a row-crop farm near Clearfield, Iowa.  He graduated from Northwest Missouri State University with a degree in Ag Business and now works with his father on the farm.  Will owns an interest in Critical Insights and travels the country scanning beef cattle.  He also farms with his brothers.  Bonnie graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Biology.  She works for UltraInsights Processing Lab as well as Critical Insights.  Recently, she began serving as office manager for Werner Feed Efficiency.

Will and Bonnie help with cattle management and live on a farm nearby.

Clint Werner--Clint graduated from Indian Hills Community College with a degree in Diesel Mechanics.  He works on the farm.  Clint gets to do much of the mechanical work on our machinery as well as helping with the cattle and horses.  He is also in charge of the hunting.  Clint and Joe operate Werner Feed Efficiency testing center, testing seedstock cattle for feed efficiency.  Clint also lives on a farm nearby.

Joe  and Heather Werner--Joe graduated from Southwestern Community College (SWCC) with a degree in Ag Business.  Joe is very involved with the ranch work and takes a lead role in data collection.  He co-manages Werner Feed Efficiency.  His wife Heather works off the farm, but spends as much time as possible helping with daily activity.  They live on a farm nearby with their 3 kids.  


Family is important to us.  We thank God that our business has grown, that our children live nearby, that we live in a caring and Christian community, and that we can all work doing what we love.
