Kim Brackett

Kim Brackett

Kim Brackett and her husband Ira own and operate Brackett Ranches, a cow-calf and stocker operation with the primary goal of producing superior quality calves, while improving the range health of their ranch. Calves are marketed as high-end feeder cattle or retained and finished in custom feedlots. Based in southern Idaho, Brackett Ranches is located on the Idaho/Nevada border. Understanding that consumers want reassurance regarding animal care and environmental stewardship, Brackett Ranches participates in third-party verification for Source and Age, Natural and Non-Hormone Treated Cattle, as well as Beef Quality Assurance certification.

Brackett is a past chairman of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board, as well as the Idaho Beef Council. She currently serves on the Beef Industry’s Long Range Plan Task Force, the National Beef Quality Assurance Advisory Board, President-Elect of the Idaho Cattle Association, the Intermountain West Joint Venture Management Board and the US Agriculture Statistics Advisory Committee. In 2018, Brackett was awarded an Eisenhower Fellowship which provided her the opportunity to study abroad and research the role of regenerative agriculture in the cattle industry.

Kim and Ira’s four children are the sixth generation to grow up on the family cattle ranch. Kim spends her days chasing kids, cows, horses or dogs and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
