welcome to five pine cattle co.

Five Pine Cattle Co. is a purebred Gelbvieh & Balancer cow calf operation located near Ocheyedan, IA. Matt & Amanda Altman along with their two children Annabelle Jean, and Brant are the owners and operators of the company. They were established in 2011 after the purchase of their first five black purebred bred heifers. Since then they have built their herd by retaining calves, and purchasing breed leading genetics. The operations focus is to develop and breed cattle that are phenotypically and genetically superior to the breed, and to the industry. They utilize artificial insemination and embryo transfer to obtain breed leading genetics and to provide genetic out crossing to better their herd. They strive to produce cattle that will work in breeding and feeding operations. Five Pine Cattle Co. works closely with Amanda's family operation L&L Fitting and they are also a cooperative breeder with Flying H Genetics. They market their bulls on Flying H Genetics spring and fall sales in Butler, MO. They attribute their success to the never ending support, and help of their entire family. Visitors are always welcome, and we would love to show you our herd and what we have to offer. Cattle can also be seen at The Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Clay County Fair in Spencer IA, and National Western Stock Show in Denver CO.
