Our Family History
Since the early 1980's Darlynn Cattle Company, has been in the Seedstock business. Dar and Lynn started by managing cattle operations like Figure 4 Salers and the Triple H Charolais ranch. In 1986, Dar traveled to the 101 Ranch sale in Little Falls, MN and there he found the South Devon breed. Coincidentally the following year in February at the 101 Dispersal sale, Dar and Lynn purchased another 54 cows as well as an open heifer by the name of "Tiffany Lass 11U". She would go on to win the National Western Stock Show, and so began the evolution to one of the most premier South Devon herds in the country. The initial appeal to the breed was the disposition, and although during that time South Devon were not the most attractive cattle, carcass merit and growth were strengths of the breed. The guiding principles to our operation have remained a balanced approach to genetics with emphasis on growth and carcass merit, a sincere focus on eye-appeal and udder quality, and emphasizing the effects of hybrid vigor through the production of our Poundmaker cattle. Our philosophy to cattle breeding is represented in every animal we sell and we pride ourselves in producing honest cattle, that give you real results.
