Midwest's premiere source for Belted
Sunnybrook Farms is located in Belvidere, IL and is owned by the Willis Family, Terry, Julie, Chris and Steve. Our goal is to produce cattle that work in the pasture as well as the show ring. We take great pride in selecting cattle and genetics that will work for breeders at all levels. With our strong 42 year background in the Angus industry, we have implemented the use of production records, DNA trait identification, and carcass results from the use of ultrasound and slaughter data to further the predictability of our offspring. For over a decade we have been breeding and showing Belted Galloways successfully at the local, state and national level. We invite you to give us a call or to stop by and see what we have to offer. Cattle and semen are available at all times. We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and will check back often for updates and news.
