History

Little Ace Cattle Company was founded in 1996, in Folsom, Louisiana by Kaso Kety. Kety is a 1983 graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University with a B.S. in Animal Science. He worked as the Ranch Manager for the Ace Cattle Company for 12 years after college. Since then, he has been the driving force behind Little Ace Cattle Company.

For over 20 years, Little Ace Cattle Company has offered Registered Butler Texas Longhorns, goats, sheep and other livestock. He recently started keeping bees and now offers honey from his Folsom hives. Kety also raises Americana and naked-necked chickens and offers farm-fresh eggs, which are available most of the year.

In 2008, Kety was named the Dave Evans Breeder of the Year by the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America. In 2013, the TLBAA honored Kety with the Elmer Parker Lifetime Achievement Award. Kety has numerous other awards recognizing his excellent breeding program and dedication to preservation of Longhorn cattle, particularly Butler Longhorn genetics.

Since 1998, Kety has teamed up with Michael McLeod of McLeod Ranch, located in Edna, Texas, to host the Butler Breeders' Invitational Sale in Lockhart, Texas, every Saturday of Labor Day weekend. As noted on the Butler Texas Longhorns website, the Butler Breeders' Invitational Sale is one of the premier events of the Longhorn industry and continues to be an excellent opportunity to acquire the finest of Butler Bloodline genetics. Kety is the single largest donor of artifacts to the Butler Longhorn Museum in League City, TX.

Kety resides on 20 acres north of Folsom, Louisiana, with his wife, Lisa, their son, Jake, and their two cats. He maintains his herd at three different locations, including the former ranch of the late Johnnie Hoffman and the original Ace Cattle Company.
