About Our Family

Four generations have farmed the land that Marlin Nilsson, and his son Casey, still farm today. Located near Warner, S.D. the Nilsson’s have partnered with Demkota Ranch Beef since the company’s beginning and pride themselves on raising South Dakota cattle.

The Nilsson family works closely with the Department of Natural Resources to ensure their crops and cattle are raised environmentally sound. Cattle are checked daily and follow strict protocols for producing beef that offers a healthy, wholesome, and quality protein.
