Who We Are


Niobrara Red Angus has been built with a focus on quality, the foundation female and the best genetics the team can source. When building a Red Angus herd from scratch, Jeff reached out to the leading operations within the breed asking for help and guidance — what the family received instead are lifelong friends. Through partnerships with Six Mile Ranch, C Bar Red Angus and Blairs Ag, Jeff and Tami were able to create a solid foundation for the Niobrara herd, with the goal of growing the ranch into a legacy for their sons.

Niobrara Red Angus is the perfect combination of family traditions and new beginnings working together to provide exceptional customer service and superior Red Angus genetics.

Our Mission


The foundation of any good cowherd always starts with the female. At Niobrara Red Angus we work to create superior Red Angus cows and heifers that perform for the working cattleman. We strive to be a trusted source for Red Angus replacement females that will elevate your cowherd to the next level and remain a working part of your ranch for years to come.
