Bear Lake Braunvieh is located just north of Rice Lake, WI and is owned & operated by Tim & Sarah, Harrison & Anna Lipke.  We came across the Braunvieh breed in 2006 and since then have traveled the country carefully selecting genetics that highlight the type of cattle we like to look at and work with.  We are confident we continue to move in the right direction as we breed and select for animals that are powerful yet moderate in size, thick butted, stout, heavily muscled and full of volume.  We cull hard on disposition and udder quality. While our herd numbers are not large, we have set our sights on the best Braunvieh genetics available.  Our emphasis on quality make us your Wisconsin source of Braunvieh influenced cattle.

Our primary focus is developing registered seed stock that will work for the purebred breeder as well as the commercial cattlemen.  We select hard for herd bulls that can be used in a variety of settings.  Most of our herd is purebred Braunvieh but we also have a group of registered black Angus and Angus commercial cows that are crossed with our Braunvieh herd sires to show the merits of cross breeding using Braunvieh.         

Give us a call or send us an email.  We would love to talk cattle with you.  Better yet, make plans to stop on over.  We would love to show you our Braunvieh cattle!!
