Angus Cattle Co. is a family-owned operation with a rich cattle ranching history that dates back multiple generations.
As a 3rd generation rancher, Angus Arthur, is proud to now lead the family business. His father, Andrew Arthur Sr., has over 40 years of experience with raising cattle.
While growing up, Angus always looked forward to the semi trucks full of cattle pulling into the drive. Unfortunately, to meet market demand, the family switched to crop farming during Angus' teenage years.
Angus' fondest childhood memories are those spent on the farm around the livestock. In 2018, on break from college, he made the decision to bring cattle back to the family farm. Angus' entrepreneurial journey began with the purchase of two steers. He was able to quickly pre-sell the two steers for freezer beef. Before long, there were 20 head of cattle at the farm and the operation rapidly expanded. Angus Cattle Co. is now going into 2023 with just over 200 head of cattle.
In Angus' own words, "It’s been a journey of blood, sweat, and tears, and it’s one I’ve put my whole heart into. But it’s paid off in more ways than I can describe."
Today, Angus Cattle Co is hand-delivering freezer beef all across the midwest with hundreds of satisfied customers.
Continuing the Legacy

As our farm continues to grow, we have made some changes to fit our expanding herd's needs. Here are some of our major improvements so far!
Automatic Watering System
We added an automatic watering system to the farm to help provide fresh and constant water to the cattle. It is also essential during the winter months to keep the water from freezing
In order to provide our cattle with the best environment, we purchased a new tractor that helps keep our facilities consistently clean. Our new tractor and hay mower are more efficient and less time consuming for planting & harvesting hay.
During the summer, we made major improvements to the fencing of our facility. We fixed & inspected all of the electric fencing around the cattle, added a holding pen to make loading & unloading safer, and repainted the barnyard fence for curb appeal
