Lemke Cattle is a family ranching and dryland farming operation near Lawrence in south central Nebraska. Owned and operated by Randy & Leslie Lemke and their 3 children Samantha, Taylor and Tanner.
We run a registered cattle seedstock business and a commercial cow/calf operation, breeding Angus, Red Angus, Balancer, Gelbvieh and Simangus cattle.
Our goal and passion is breeding quality balanced trait cattle. By balanced trait or “total performance” we mean cattle that possess all the desired traits that work and excel for the Rancher, Feeder, Packer and ultimately the Consumer.
Lemke Cattle has utilized an extensive A.I. program for over 30 years and has continued to expand our Embryo transfer program over the last 10 years in order to multiply our top genetics.
Both the Registered and commercial cows are run together and managed the same way. Cows graze most of the year, on native grass pastures in spring and summer, and on corn stalks and winter pasture in the Fall & early Winter. Cows are expected to raise calves that weigh at least half their own body weight at weaning from grass, water, salt & mineral only. No creep feed is ever fed to any calves. This allows for a more accurate evaluation and comparison of a Cows true production ability.
The Lemke Cowherd’s genetics run deep with maternal, performance and carcass traits and is the factory which consistently produces top quality Bulls for our customers.
We strive to produce the best genetics possible and back up our cattle with customer service second to none, including first season breeding guarantees and marketing assistance for customers calves.
A special thanks to our many valued customers. We know our success in the seedstock business is found in our customers success with our Genetics. We live by one simple rule with our customers. Treat others the way you’d like to be treated yourself.
