Who we are

Ramsay Farms is situated in the northeastern part of Ottertail County, near Perham, Minnesota. This family farm of 320 acres has been in the Ramsay family for five generations, dating back to 1892. Today our farm prides itself on our Simmental cattle, Shetland Sheep and BlueFaced Leicester sheep. We strive to breed animals that closest match the breed standards given to them, and mindful of production, health and longevity in our animals as well.
In spring of 2016, there was a purchase of 32 acres in Green County, Wisconsin to accommodate Garrett for his work in that region. The animals have for the most part been moved to that location. Both locations will work in tandem to continue educating and promoting these animals and this way of life.

Simmental Cattle

For decades we have been trying to acquire semen domestically that was following the traditionally marked/spotted Simmental in both red and yellow. In 2009, we imported semen from two UK Simmental bulls and these cows and calves are direct results of those combinations of domestic and imported bulls. We are so excited to showcase to you what we have done in the past 30 years of selective breeding. 

Below are a few photos of our stock from 2016.
