Montgomery is a former U.S. Army Ranger, who brought the lessons he learned and the hardships he experienced in the military to his work in agriculture. After his service in the military was over, Montgomery had to find a way to cope with civilian life, having spent years dedicating his time to a routine and service to his country. Leaving left a void that he felt needed to be occupied, and KC Cattle Company allowed him to find purpose in civilian life.

Montgomery wanted to help others coming home from service to be able to find a similar purpose as he did, so KC Cattle Company employs veterans to help him produce and deliver his products to the community they all once served. The KC Cattle Company displays the Homegrown by Heroes motto to show the community that its workers bring the same pride and hard work they once had in the military back into the community.
