KGA in the News
Al and Mary Knapp of Bonner Springs, KS were honored as the American Gelbvieh Association 2010 Member of the Year at the association’s annual convention in Denver on January 9. The AGA honors members who, through their work, have brought credit to the Gelbvieh breed and their association. Al and Mary Knapp of Triple K Gelbvieh have been honored with that distinction. Al and Mary are active members of the KGA where Al has served in many capacities over the years. They are also members of the AGA where Al and Mary both serve on the AGA Foundation committee, which Al co-chairs. Al has also been a member of the AGA Board of Directors and was recently elected as AGA president. Triple K Gelbvieh is a family owned purebred Gelbvieh and Balancer seedstock operation. They have been raising Gelbvieh cattle since 1996 after purchasing a purebred Gelbvieh bull for breeding some Angus based commercial heifers. When they saw what Gelbvieh added to the commercial cows and the hybrid vigor of the calves they were convinced. At the same time, their son Nick was in 4-H and wanted a Gelbvieh heifer. After a couple of years they saw the maternal differences in the Gelbvieh cows and were convinced. By 1999 they converted to a solely purebred Gelbvieh seedstock operation. The Knapps attend 8-10 shows each year including the AGJA National Classic, the American Royal, where they serve as Gelbvieh Superintendents, the Kansas State Fair, and the Kansas Beef Expo and have shown many champions.
