Dwight & Anita Rokey
Assistant & Office Assistant
Dwight and Anita live with five of their children southwest of Sabetha on a registered Holstein dairy farm where they milk 125 cows. Faith, family, farm, in that order, is the cornerstone of their lives! One daughter is married, and another son works on a neighboring dairy while the other children help on their farm when needed, with their oldest daughter taking on more roles and ownership of cattle.
The Rokeys enjoy exhibiting cattle at state and national shows as a family. Together, they enjoy the registered cattle business and the dairy industry throughout Kansas and around the nation. Anita has enjoyed serving as a board member of the Kansas Dairy Association for the past couple of years. Being involved in Kansas agriculture, with an emphasis on dairy, is exciting for her! Getting to know others and being able to relate to others and other situations is a great benefit to their farm and business.
Anita also enjoys small getaways with the family because dairying seems like a 24/7/365-day job! Additionally, she enjoys cooking, reading, and any type of nature hiking/biking.
Kara and husband Klint reside near Morrill, KS where they farm and raise beef cows and sheep. Agriculture has always been part of Kara's life since she was raised on a 100 head dairy farm.
Klint and Kara have been blessed with 5 children, which keeps them busy! In the spare time she does have, Kara enjoys traveling, reading, scrapbooking, and being outdoors.
Sadie lives on a farm outside of Morrill, Kansas with her family. She is a junior at Country Hill Christian Academy. Sadie works on her family farm where her main interest is working with the beef cattle and custom seeding crops. Sadie and her sisters milk cows, feed bottle calves, and run a small sheep, dairy goat, and meat goat herd. The sisters also own and manage a small Holland Lop Rabbitry. Sadie enjoys helping Dr. Aaron work cattle when needed. Sadie also enjoys baking, as well as playing and teaching piano, violin, and cello.
Conner Deckinger graduated from Sabetha High School and has been around cattle his entire life. He became a member of 4-H as soon as he could and began showing cattle. He continued to show cattle through 4-H and the Jr. Angus Association when he purchased his own cattle.
Through high school and after, Conner worked on several dairy farms where he helped at the dairy facilities and with the row crop portion of the farm. He spent a year in Nebraska where he worked on a registered Angus ranch and began welding continuous fencing.
Currently, Conner lives near Bern, KS where he is engaged in farming and custom welding. He is an owner in D5 Angus, the
family cattle business, at Sabetha. He has been instrumental in the animal health of D5’s cattle with the knowledge he has learned from working on other farms and especially with Apogee Animal Health.
Conner’s passion is farming, whether it is planting crops, baling hay or helping Dr. Aaron work animals.
