American Highland Cattle Association Members
Midwest Highland Cattle Association Members
Seth and I come from a long line of farmers who have raised livestock and grown row crops for over a century. We knew when we met that we wanted to continue this family tradition. Point Pleasant Cattle Company was originally founded in 2018 in Gifford, Illinois. A grove of trees a mile east of our original homestead, where a post office once stood, is all that is left of what used to be called Point Pleasant. Legend says the area was named after the Battle of Point Pleasant in West Virginia. For the earliest landowners there, the battle would have been acknowledged as the beginning of the Revolutionary War. Some settlers were veterans or sons of veterans of the battle. Although we have moved since our cattle company was founded, it is our hope to stay connected to where we started building our dream and fold.
In 2021, Seth and I were provided the opportunity to relocate our farm which allowed us to expand our farm and move closer to my family's farm. Now located outside of Leonore, Illinois, Point Pleasant Cattle Company continues to remain in the American Heartland and called central Illinois home.
Our goal is to provide quality care for our cattle and quality cattle for others through both registered and unregistered highland cattle. We have chosen to raise both registered and unregistered highlands to provide a wider variety for our customers. We understand that people purchase highlands for a variety of reasons and want to be able to accommodate as many of these as possible.
