About Us

Welcome to J Bar W Cattle Co.!

Justin, Joleen, Jami, Brianne and January welcome you to J Bar W Cattle Company. We are located in Elizabeth, Colorado, with majestic Pike’s Peak standing on the horizon. We are excited and eager to share the Miniature Hereford breed with everyone. Let us introduce ourselves:

Justin – Owner and operator of J Bar W Cattle Co.

I was born and raised in Fort Dodge, Iowa, to a farming and ranching family. I grew up with crop harvests, cattle, horses and rodeo, and my family remains very active in all aspects. I also have owned my own security company for over 20 years.

Joleen – A Colorado native, comes from a third generation ranching family.

My family’s main focus is on commercial cattle and they own and operate one of the few Centennial ranches in Colorado. I have also worked for the Douglas County courts for 18 years.

We are assisted by our daughters, Jami and Brianne; and our niece, January. Jami works for a healthcare revenue management company, and Brianne is active with a special needs program in a neighboring town. They both have been very active with their grandparent’s ranch, 4-H and FFA. January is a certified veterinary technician and her passion for working with animals has been a tremendous asset to our endeavor.

Limited acreage led us to Miniature Herefords in 1997. From the start, with the purchase of two cows and one bull, we knew where we wanted to go with these cattle. Our goal was to consistently breed and raise the highest quality cattle that we could. Eleven years later, through selective breeding with multiple herd sires and a solid number of foundation cows and heifers, our herd number has grown to seventy-five. Multiple champions have been crowned from our breeding program and our original goal still remains our top priority.

We have been involved with showing our cattle, beginning in 2000, and the National Western Stock Show in Denver. The breeders participating in that show and those that were spectators all recognized the bright future of this breed. Each year there are more shows being scheduled nation wide, and the number of breeders and entries continues to increase.
