Our ranch was started in 1952 by Alvin & Verna Vollmer, Allen's parents. The family owned and operated ranch is located in the Couteau region of ND where the tall-grasses and the short-grasses of the prairie meet. Nearly all of the forage and feed needed for the cowherd is raised right here at the ranch. Cell grazing and no-till farming are important production elements of VAR, a past recipient of the Achievement Award for the Burleigh Co. Soil Conservation District.
They might be the "Queens of the Ranch" but they are still expected to work for a living. We are a no frills operation where the 575+ cows are culled heavily for disposition, mothering ability, performance and reproductive excellence. Plus they have to know how to do well on grass and survive a North Dakota winter.
