Welcome To

Assman Lovejoy Cattle Company

Located on the vast prairie of south central South Dakota south west of the town of Winner, Assman-Lovejoy Cattle Company sits on the Tripp – Todd County line in the heart of prime cattle country. Hard grass, fresh water and open range paint the perfect picture of an operation that started in 1910 where today it is nestled in the picturesque foothills of the Taylor Buttes.

Two hundred purebred Angus cows, nine hundred commercial cows, and an occasional visit from a deer, antelope, coyote, prairie chicken, bald eagle, wild turkey, grouse or pheasant can be found on the property. Assman-Lovejoy Cattle Company is an operation that prides itself on ranch raised bulls, not feedlot bulls, for the commercial producer. The bulls are fed on the range with plenty of exercise which results in athletic, lean muscled, structurally correct with good feet which enables the bulls to travel and cover a cow herd without resulting in a meltdown that occurs with corn fed feedlot bulls. The bulls are handled in a natural environment that is conducive to the longevity of the useful life span of the bull, which cattlemen, cattlewomen, and bankers appreciate. The bulls are sold at private treaty.
