Dybdal Charolais

About Us

Taylor, Larry, Krista, Ty, Trisha Dybdal

Dybdal Charolais began in 1982 when Larry purchased his first Charolais heifers. Larry was always impressed with his father Lawrence's Charolais-cross animals and quickly saw the benefits of having the Charolais influence in the herd.

Dybdal Charolais is located near Newcastle in the northeast corner of Nebraska. Larry and Krista along with their family Taylor, Ty and Trisha, run 300 head of purebred Charolais and 50 commercial cows. Along with the cattle operation, the family also operates a diversified farm consisting of corn, beans, alfalfa, wheat, and oats.


Lawrence Martin Dybdal
June 18, 1928-May 7, 2016
Lawrence proved to be the cornerstone and foundation of our family run operation. There isn't a day that we don't refer to him in one way or another. It is with great honor that we dedicate this year's sale to him. We will forever honor his memories.


Three Generations

The Dybdals have found the Charolais breed to be quite versatile. It works well for the purest of seedstock herds as well as the commercial cattleman. The Charolais cross adds significant pounds to calves at sale time.

The Dybdal Charolais program consists of both artificial insemination and embryos, along with their proven herd sires. They have found that this program strengthens the genetic capabilities to provide the best possible bloodlines in the Charolais industry. The cowherd is a very moderate framed herd. The bulls that have sired these calves are some of the best in the breed.

The Dybdal children stay quite active showing cattle throughout the year and have each started their own small herds.
