Welcome to BEARE Cattle Farms -
Mike & Roger Beare are the third generation to live and
work on the Beare Family farm, located 6 miles west and
1 1/2 miles north of Estelline, SD just off of Hwy 28.
Both Mike & Roger have been involved in the raising of
club calves for several years and began with only owning
a few cows. The farming operation has grown to include a
150 cow herd which consists of commercial, purebred
Simmental, and purebred Maine Anjou with an annual club
calf pasture sale each Fall. In addition, grain farming
has been incorporated into the overall operation.
In 2008, Beare Cattle Farms LLC was formed and Mike &
Roger's uncle, Ronald Beare, became a partner in the
operation along with their aunt, Linda Beare. Tianna
Beare serves as the business manager for the company.

traits have led to the production of cattle that are
sought by breeders, club calf enthusiasts, and
commercial feeders. The operation began a veterinarian
