Prescott Angus


Prescott Angus was established in 1950 by Allen H. Prescott. Some of the first Angus cows were purchased from Bon View Farms in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Ken Caryl Ranch in Littleton, Colorado. Now the second and third generation of Prescott Angus, Richard and Michael, are carrying on the tradition of breeding functional females and powerful herd bulls. The Prescott Angus operation has two locations, the Mendota, Ilinois location is the home of Richard and Shirley Prescott and the start of Prescott Angus. This location is home to 100 Angus cows. We also sell approximately 25 purebred Angus bulls a year through this location along with a few private treaty females. In addition to purebred genetics we also sell freezer beef to the surrounding community.

The Lincoln, Illinois location is home to approximately 90 cows, mainly registered Angus and Simmental females. We also have a few private treaty bulls for sale at this location. The heifers are fed a growing ration containing soy hull pellets and MIX 30, The High Energy Liquid Feed. The feeder calves are backgrounded for 45 days then sold to Belle Terra Farms and they grow the cattle to be processed for freezer beef. We follow a strict health program and use functional bulls that not only excel with numbers but also phenotype.

We appreciate your time looking at our genetics and website. Feel free to check out the herd sires and equipment we have for sale.


Furthermore, we typically market about 30 bulls through private treaty sales. Over the years, we have sold bulls to Colorado, Wisconsin, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Texas and Kansas.


Prescott Angus is honored and humbled to be recognized as the 2015 Illinois Beef Association Farm Family of the Year!
