Hunt Angus is located in the scenic Sandhills of Nebraska — 7 miles south of Brewster, Nebraska. Hunt Angus is owned and operated by AD & Michaela Hunt, Sam & Angie Hunt, and Chris & Sadie Rotherham.
AD is the 4th generation to continue the farming and ranching business that dates back to 1898. AD has been raising commercial Angus cattle since the early 1980s when he joined his father’s farming and ranching business. In 1995, AD and his father, James, purchased twelve registered Angus replacement heifers from the E Bar V Ranch, North Platte, Nebraska. Through the years, they used an artificial insemination breeding program and purchased additional registered females from reputable breeders to grow their herd.
AD & Michaela continue to operate a commercial Angus herd. They have raised four children — Sara, Sam, Sadie, and Seth. Their children have worked alongside them, throughout the years, learning the importance of caring for the cattle and land. Sam and Sadie are the 5th generation to continue our farming and ranching legacy.
Sam purchased his first registered females from Rishel Angus in the early 2000s, while still in grade school. Sam returned to the ranch in 2012 after obtaining a college degree in Animal Science. Sam and his wife, Angie, have two sons, Jed and Eli. Angie is a Physician Assistant at a local clinic/hospital.
Sadie and her husband, Chris, joined Hunt Angus in 2020. Chris has a degree in Ag Business and Sadie is an elementary teacher in a neighboring community. They have two sons, Bellamy and Liam.
Presently, the Hunt Angus breeding program includes around 350 females split between a Spring and Fall herd. Our cows are housed year-round on native Sandhills grass at the ranch south of Brewster. We feel that environment is important for the development of our cattle and we understand the true value of fertility, soundness, and longevity. Our registered herds are managed similarly to our commercial herd. We continue to utilize an extensive artificial insemination program to incorporate the best genetics available.
We are blessed to have the opportunity to develop Angus genetics that perform in today’s cattle industry. We look forward to the 6th generation’s impact on our program.
