About Us

Jake, Nicole, Waylon, Claycen, & HestonDean

We created Crown J Cattle, LLC in 2013.  Having both been born and raised in Bridgeport, NE, it was easy for us to setup home in the Panhandle of Nebraska.  Our parents, grandparents, and generations before have been involved in many aspects of agriculture since immigrating to the U.S. 

Working in and with our families' livestock operations has provided some unique opportunities for us to begin and grow our own operation.  Today, we operate and reside on the Coulter Ranch, named after Nicole's mother's family. Nicole manages the 3,000 head feedlot and Jake manages the ranch and cow/calf herd.  Our cow herd has shifted focus in order to create a superior quality calf crop every year by utilizing the cross between Red Angus females and Charolais bulls.  These "buckskin" calves are born in May and June and can be marketed in a variety of ways.


In February of 2012, we were blessed with our first son, Waylon James, in February of 2014, Claycen Coulter arrived, and in June of 2016, Heston McCoy joined the family.
