four generations have farmed the land that Marlin Nilsson, his son Casey and son-in-law, Nathan still farm to this day. Located near Warner, S.D. the Nilsson’s have partnered with DemKota Ranch Beef since the company’s beginning, priding themselves in raising South Dakota beef.

“We have the best genetics and the best cattle in the 

world here in South Dakota.” said Nilsson.

Working closely with the local Department of Natural Resources to ensure their farm is environmentally friendly, the family raises row crops, along with their 5,000-head feedlot.  Cattle are checked daily and follow strict protocols for producing beef that is a healthy, wholesome, quality protein.

DemKota chooses top of the line beef and that’s what we aim to deliver. High quality, high grading and hard fed cattle; that’s what we have and that’s what we provide.
