Welcome to Cabernet Country in southeastern
The ranch is located north of Pomeroy, Washington and about an hour
northwest of Lewiston, Idaho. Some of the summer pasture overlooks
the Snake River and Lower Granite Dam. Whether it is in the spring
with those beautiful rolling green Palouse hills of new wheat and
barley crops or those golden glowing colors in the late summer,
this is great country for the Red Angus herd of Cabernet cattle.
Roger and Diane Koller and their two boys Wyatt
(11) and Nolan (13) handle the all of the day-to-day operation of
the cattle business. As with all families with young sons, their
time is very busy spend around school, football, basketball, baseball
and 4-H activities and this family is no different. Their 4-H beef
projects include both Wyatt's Branded Beef and Nolan's Branded Beef.
Those 4-H steer projects are well know in Al's office staff's freezers
in Seattle. Al, the other partner, is located about 300 miles west
of the ranch in the greater Seattle area. Not a day goes by that
Al doesn't think about what is going on that day at the ranch and
how the cattle are performing.
In our 4th year, the foundation cows are finally
getting in line with Roger's calving schedule - calving to start
in by mid-December and be completed by mid-February or else. This
year we have an excellent group of heifers and bull calves. Our
young bulls are working at commercial herds in Southeast Washington
and Northeast Oregon. Some of our replacement heifers have found
new greener pastures in Montana and Kentucky. Our herd
bulls are Glacier Crimson, son of
Glacier Chateau 744 and Hughes Carmesi,
son of Buffalo Creek Cricket 2205.

by the ranch for a cup of coffee or better yet, a glass of cabernet
