History of Dybdal Charolais
You could say Agriculture is in the Dybdal's blood... Martin Dybdal came to the United States from Denmark in 1904 at the age of 17, at that time he began raising livestock and crops. Second generation, Lawrence Martin Dybdal, was fond of Charolais Cross animals and primarily used those in his cattle herd. Third generation, Lawrence Martin Dybdal II (Larry), was always impressed with his father's Charolais-cross animals and quickly saw the benefits of having the Charolais influence in the herd.
Dybdal Charolais began in 1982 when Larry purchased his first pure bred heifers and bulls. Larry started selling Charolais bulls and females in 1985 and started Annual Production Sales in 2012. Fourth generation, Ty Martin Dybdal, returned home in May of 2018 and became part of the Dybdal Charolais Operation.
The Dybdal Charolais program consists of both artificial insemination and embryos, along with their proven herd sires. They have found that this program strengthens the genetic capabilities to
provide the best possible bloodlines in
theCharolais industry. The cowherd is a
very moderate framed herd. The bulls
that have sired these calves are some
of the best in the breed.
We have found the Charolais breed
to be quite versatile. It works well for
the purest of seedstock herds as well as
the commercial cattleman. The
Charolais cross adds significant pounds
to calves at sale time.
