JP Bar Look Back at it
A bull bred by our own JP Bar Ranch, he was Supreme Shorthorn Bull at the 2016 State Fair and added some color back to our herd.
"Stripe" as we call him, is our newest heifer bull. We are eagerly awaiting his first calf crop.

Another clubby bull, Dakota Gold is sired by the famous Monopoly and out of a Yellow Jacket/Who made Who Dam. This one is a prospect, but we hope to see some exciting offspring from him this year!

MEET THE FAMILY
JP Bar Ranch was established in 1973 when John Plummer bought his first Shorthorn cow. It has lasted through his son, Juston Plummer who showed cattle all through his youth. JP Bar Ranch has grown by Juston's marriage to Gena and their 4 children (Juston J., Faith, Devonie & Danelle). The ranch has grown to multiple locations, including the Herald Homestead Ranch. The breeding program has grown immensely, and our hope is to see it continue into Plummer generations to come.
