Just a brief history of Christofferson Farms


The Home Place

Grandpa Harold Christofferson came from Norway and homesteaded in 1908 on 320 acres. Harold’s youngest son Artt and his mom Ovedia carried on the farm until Ovedia retired in the early 1960’s.  Artt bought his first Black Angus cow in 1962 from N BAR ranch at Grass Range.  Artt (Joan) participated in the original Milk River bull sales in the 1960’s several times winning the Grand Champion several times,  going against Rudolph Brothers, Stevenson’s and many more.

The 3rd Generation (Ross and Bruce) bought bred heifers  purchased  from GDAR in 1991 with others added along the way. We have an Angus Registered herd of 250 head and a commercial herd of another 150 head. We purchased 60 commercial cows from Rice Ranches south of Three Forks when they had their dispersion. Rice Ranch’s  produced commercial bulls for 20 plus years in the Three Forks area. We use them as Recip cows from the embryos produced at Milk River genetics.
