Barenthsen - Bullinger Red Angus is owned and operated by the Mark and Kathy Barenthsen and Jeremy and Jessica Bullinger families.  Located in NW North Dakota, we are approximately 25 miles from the Canadian border and 80 miles from the Montana border near the town of Powers Lake.  We are the fourth and fifth generation to farm and ranch here. 

Since beginning in the commercial cattle business in 1976, our main goal has always been to create a lifestyle that we would enjoy and that our family could be an active part of.  With the help of our four daughters; Jessica, Emily, Kayla and Aleah, we have been able to expand and develop the ranch to maximize productivity and also focus on good stewardship of our land and cattle.

In 1993 we purchased our first registered Red Angus females.  After using Red Angus with much success in our commercial cross-breeding program, we had much respect for the breed and the maternal and performance traits that they added to our herd. 

In 2003, daughter Jessica and her husband, Jeremy Bullinger, joined the operation and are now full-time partners in the ranch.  Their involvement with our program also contributes to sixth generation ranchers, son Jaden and daughters Avah and Adalyn.    

We enjoy the friendships we’ve made in the cattle business over the past 30+ years.  We welcome you to stop in for a visit and view the cowherd anytime!
