Kuckelman joined ILS in early 2011 as chief operating officer. Jerry began his professional career as a cattle buyer for IBP (now Tyson). His working knowledge of cattle quickly transitioned into a 31-year career in feed yard management, where he distinguished himself as one of the premier managers in the industry.

“ILS is very fortunate to have a person with Jerry’s experience and cattle knowledge in our organization who understands our culture. He is the right person for ILS and is very capable of leading the company into their future growth initiatives. His track record of success in the cattle industry is very impressive,” says Borck.

A native of Baileyville, Kansas, Jerry and his wife, Linda, have three daughters and enjoy attending Kansas State University sporting events. They currently reside in Manhattan, Kansas.  end mark
