Welcome and thank you for visiting our page! Hilbrands Cattle Co was established in July of 2013 with the marriage of Mark Hilbrands and Amanda Eberspacher. Mark purchased his first black Simmental from 4E Simmentals in 1992 and started using embryo transfer in 1996. Amanda grew up with club calves but was heavily involved in the Simmental industry due to her parents sale management business and purchased her first purebred Simmental show heifer from Triple C Farms in 1999. Mark and Amanda purchased JF Ebonys Joy 479P "Hope" together in the spring of 2005 which started the HS/AJE partnership! Hope quickly turned into a foundation donor and is still part of the now HILB donor battery.
Located in Clara City, MN, and both graduates of South Dakota State University, Mark and Amanda run 65-70 head of purebred and percentage Simmental cattle with an extensive use of embryo transfer. They host the Jewels of the Northland Production Sale the first Saturday in December and market cattle in Louisville, Denver and the MN State Sale. Embryos are always available and bulls are for sale private treaty. Be sure to check out our For Sale page as new genetics come available. Visitors are always welcome at the farm!
We welcomed Kinslee Hope Hilbrands on April 12th, 2015.
Mark, Amanda & Kinslee Hilbrands
