BoPat Farms

Bopat cattle farm and family

to BoPat Farms

BoPat Farms is a registered Angus seedstock operation owned by Larry and Betty Lou Patterson. The business started in 1964 as a row crop and livestock operation producing cotton, corn, soybeans, hogs and cattle in a partnership with Betty’s parents, William and Frances Bolton. The business operated as Bolton and Patterson Farms until Mr. Bolton’s passing.

The first registered Angus seedstock came on the farm in 1967 and the herd has expanded to become the major enterprise. In order to keep the name within the association limits the Bo from Bolton and Pat from Patterson was put together to form the prefix BoPat and that name was carried over to the farm name. Cattle are produced in a practical environment utilizing pasture and homegrown feeds when possible.

Modern technologies such as EPD’s, ultrasound, and DNA are used as sorting tools in cattle breeding decisions. The cattle are marketed by private treaty and an annual on-farm auction held the first Saturday in March since 1996.
