Welcome, from our outfit to yours!
Diamond P Cattle Company started only as a dream in 1990 when I married the love of my life, Michelle Tompkins. Both of our families were involved in the cattle business and we too knew someday that was a dream for our family.
Michelle’s family had been involved in previous years with Red Angus cattle while my family was actively breeding Beefmaster cattle and at the time I owned Beefmaster, Charolais and commercial cattle. When we started building “our” herd of cattle we had settled on the Red Angus breed. These cattle, without question, have the best dispositions of any breed of cattle I have ever been associated with. Not only that, their mothering instincts are unparalleled and they produce light birth weight calves that have super growth and carcass characteristics packaged in a moderate easy finishing frame.
In 2011 our son Nolan came up with the idea that he wanted us to start breeding some Simmental cattle, which we have been selectively buying and starting to develop into our program. However, we are predominately breeding Purebred Red Angus seedstock and commercial Red Angus replacement females.
With the birth of our granddaughter in 2013, this will begin the 3rd generation of our family to have a hand in developing what we feel will be one of the best seedstock operations in the Bluegrass State.
At Diamond P Cattle Company it is not our intent to sell you “a” bull or “a” female. It is our intent to develop a long term relationship with each of our customers and to become a partner with you in the betterment and progress of your cattle operation whether it is producing purebred seedstock or selling feeder calves at your local market.
Please feel free to call or come by anytime, it is always our pleasure to visit with you and talk cows!
