Welcome to Gateway Genetics

Our cow herd consists of around 450 registered Angus, Simmental, Sim/Angus, Maine-Anjou and cross-breeds. We continually add females from some of the top programs across the US. Our cattle have been successful in many breeding programs, AI sire programs, shows and sales for ourselves and our customers. Kevin and Laura Benes bring over 65 years of experience in the cattle business. With their Sandhills roots and tireless work ethic, you can be assured that when you buy cattle from us, you are guaranteed an animal that is structurally sound, well-bred (including EPD’s and Phenotype) and will make you more profitable for years to come.


Our Goal at Gateway Genetics is to produce top quality seedstock that are of foundation quality, which will be profitable and will work in any segment of the beef industry. We market our cattle through 2 annual sales. Our Female Production Sale is always the Sunday before Thanksgiving at the Farm in Martell, Nebraska. We also have a Bull sale located in Pierce, Nebraska. In addition to these two live sales, we also have a few online sales throughout the year. If you are interested in being notified of these sales, please fill out a quick form on our subscribe page.


Attention to maternal traits, fertility, performance and fleshing ability coupled with the use of proven sires, help to attain our goals to produce a consistent and reliable product for ourselves and more importantly — our customers!
