About Us

Chrisman Cattle Services, Inc. (CCS) was established in 2004 with the acquisition of the ABS breeding business from Larges Cattle Services. Marvin Large had serviced the area as an ABS representative for 25 years. This was a very fortunate opportunity that came about after Travis served as an apprentice under Marvin for one breeding season.

CCS is owned and operated by Travis and Kelli Chrisman and is located 10 miles southwest of Wauneta, just 3 miles off of Hwy 61. Travis grew up in McCool Junction, NE (York County) where he was raised on a diversified cattle, hog, corn and soybean farm. Through involvement in 4-H projects and the family operation he developed a passion for beef cattle at a young age. This interest led him to the University of Nebraska where he achieved a B.S. in Animal Science and then onto Colorado State University for graduate school where he met Kelli.

Kelli grew up in northern California near Chico. She was very involved in FFA and on the family farm where they raised club lambs and cattle. Kelli left home for college at Colorado State and graduated with her degree in Animal Science and then achieved a Master’s in Agricultural Extension Education. Besides helping with CCS, Kelli runs CCS Print Design servicing mainly the cattle industry with advertising, catalogs and web sites. She is also an excellent artist and will do commissioned work (see her portfolio at www.sporthorseartconnection.com). Kelli declared Professional Status with United States Equestrian Federation in 2011 and now takes horses for training in the Hunter/Jumper industry along with riding lessons and competing in the 1.20 meter jumpers. Jumpers are definitely not a flourishing industry in southwest Nebraska, but Kelli is working to change that.

We are thankful for all of our friends and customers in the cattle business that make our lives so enjoyable. We are looking forward continually earning your business throughout the coming years. We welcomed little miss Lena Mae Chrisman on April 5, 2013!!
