Welcome to Russell Angus Farms
History of Russell Angus Farm
The first generation of the Russell Angus operation began with Lee Russell and son Larry in the mid-70's with purchase of registered cows carefully selected from herds in the Midwest. The foundation of that herd was AI bulls from the ABS stud services. A back up bull was purchased and won Senior Reserve Champion of the 1977 Missouri State Fair. The military called Larry to service so the entire cattle operation was dispersed.
Chris Russell wanted to begin where his grandfather left off and with the mentorship of Larry a new beginning of quality Angus cattle has started. In October 2016 the first registered cows were purchased with additions continually added. Chris has an aggressive AI program in place with embryo transplants soon to begin. He has the operation linked with DNA testing to insure accuracy of Bloodlines and selecting traits to improve the quality of the herd.
Larry brings experience from the past and Chris brings the aggressive computer skills to build this new generation of Russell Angus Farm. Our goal is to produce quality Angus to fit the desires of the industry.
