Our Story

Erin Kuck grew up in West Central Iowa; one of nine children.  Being raised on a purebred Angus cow/calf operation developed her love for agriculture and production cattle specifically.  Erin received her Animal Science degree in 2004 from Iowa State University. In pursuing her agriculture passions, Erin has had the opportunity to work at and visit numerous operations in the United States, as well as, Australia, Brazil, and Africa.  More recently, Erin was serving customers for Accelerated Genetics in parts of Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri. In 2015, she left the District Sales Manager position to further her passion of achieving maximum conception and genetic excellence in developing heifers for progressive cattlemen across the country.

Kaleb Kuck grew up on a family farm in south central Nebraska near the town of Bertrand, growing corn and soybeans along with commercial cow calf production that eventually evolved into a purebred Angus cowherd. Progeny of the registered Angus cowherd are sold on an annual production sale each year – KEY Ranch. Kaleb is a graduate of Bertrand High School, he never attended college, as from a very young age he knew he wanted to farm and ranch for a living and went into production agriculture right out of high school. Through meeting and dating Erin Bradford and learning of her dream to own and operate a heifer development facility the idea of Bodoga Terra was born. In similarity to Erin, Kaleb has a passion for cattle and an excitement for the opportunity to offer a complete heifer development program to cattle producers across the Midwest.
