established in 2018

Although Legacy Livestock became an official LLC in 2018, the true beginnings of the family's love for cattle started almost 40 years prior, when Dan Tellkamp started his first job on the neighbor's dairy when he was 8 years old. Since then Dan, along with his wife of over 30 years, Jackie, began their own herd of beef cattle. Their 5 children grew up raising cattle and learning the responsibilities of caring for animals. Legacy Livestock is one of the first Registered Black Hereford farms in the state of Michigan. 

Legacy Livestock exists to provide strong genetic breeding stock and exceptional beef.
