  Triangle J Ranch

For those of you that have not met Jeremy Cast, we want to introduce him to you and thank him for everything he has
done for us. Jeremy has been our herdsman for the past 11 years. He has a great passion for the cattle business and has a great knowledge of our cow herd, bloodlines, and goals of our operation. It’s enjoyable to work with someone that shares the excitement and enthusiasm that we have for the cowherd. Sometimes the hours are long, so we thank his wife, Brooke, for her understanding.

If you get a chance, introduce yourself to Jeremy and his family on sale day. He is with the cattle every day, and we trust his judgment. Beconfident to ask Jeremy a question sale day, you will get a knowledgeable, honest answer.

Thank You Cast Family!

  Jeremy and Brooke Cast, Preston, Payton, and Avery
The Judy and Line Ranch was founded in 1887 when Roy Judy purchased land from the railroad and began raising Shorthorn cattle. A generation later, his daughter Irma and her husband Azale Line took up the family business and starting using Hereford cattle. When their son, Doug, and his wife, Dixie, took the reins, they brought in Angus cattle to produce a black white face F1 cross. The tradition continues with me, Darby, and my wife, Annette doing business as Triangle J Ranch.

We introduced Simmental to the ranch, with the initial group being made up of the old red and white spotted cows. We have4 Generations of the Line Family now transitioned to black-hided cattle to fulfill the needs of our customers. We run about 700 head of cattle--500 registered
(300 Simmental, 200 Angus) and 200 commercial cows. The bulls range from 1/2 blood Simm/Angus to purebred Simmental and Angus.

The Triangle J Ranch Sale is located on the family farm, 35 miles northwest of Kearney, NE. The sale is annually the last Sunday in January. Approximately 200 yearling bulls sell each year. We do all the preparations for the sale from getting the cattle ready, to preparing the sale catalog, to cooking the meal for sale day.

Commercial cattlemen are the main focus of our breeding program. Most of our customers are local, but we do have a number of  out-of-state buyers who come back year after year.
We  have also been fortunate enough to place  a number of bulls in many  of the popular bull studs.                     

We attribute our family's success to our intensive artificial insemination (AI) and embryo transfer (ET) program.  In 2010 we will be transferring  over 150 embryos into our commercial cows in order to improve quality  and to meet the increasing demand for Sim\Angus genetics.

Our goal is to produce females with fleshing and milking ability that raise calves that weigh heavier at weaning. We also look for moderately framed, thick, high-performing cattle.  Most of the cattle for sale are both Homozygous Polled and Homozygous Black  and are  solid-colored.  Not only do we strive to provide our customers with more uniform cattle, but we also try to follow up with our customers after the sale.

When we aren't  tending to the cattle, we're busy with our children's interests in agriculture, school, and sports.  The boys are involved in football, basketball,baseball, and track. They are also very active in 4-H, FFA and attend numerous livestock judging contests.  Our oldest son Travis will be attending  college this fall with a livestock judging scholarship.

For more than 100 years, our family has survived in central Nebraska through our commitment to our customers and breeding quality cattle. We welcome visitors any time. We would love to give you a herd tour!
