About Us

We appreciate your interest in our cattle.

What you’ll find on our website – and in our pastures – are the result of nearly two decades of breeding Angus cattle. With the purchase of a Barbara K heifer from Mill Coulee Angus, Dennis and Jennifer started Deppe Angus in 1997.

Our goal has been the same since the beginning – to produce performance-tested bulls and females that will accelerate and thrive in commercial and seedstock producers’ herds.

We began performance testing at the Iowa Cattleman’s bull test stations in 1999. Our bulls have been top indexing and/or high sellers in each of the three sale location sites. In 2013, we began testing bulls at the granddaddy of bull tests in Midland Bull Test in Columbus, Mont., and in 2015 and 2016, we had the champion weight per day of age bull for their respective groups.

DNA data has been collected since 2008. We use extensive embryo transfer and implant 125 to 150 embryos per year to grow and make rapid genetic improvement. Cattle must be sound, structurally correct with eye appeal. Females have strong maternal traits, longevity and docile temperament.
