Registered Angus Cattle Since 1933

Our Story

In 1933, W.H. and Morris Pipkin traveled to Kansas and purchased the farm’s first registered Angus cattle from the Johnson Workman family, making Clearwater Farm one of the oldest herds in Missouri. In the early years, Berkshire hogs and Hampshire sheep were also a mainstay to the operation. Both were eventually phased out and for more than three decades, the operation has focused solely on providing quality Angus seedstock for registered and commercial cattlemen alike. By selectively seeking out the best AI sires in the breed for both eye appeal and profitability, the Pipkins work to produce Angus genetics that not only perform in the pasture, but also on the plate.

Today Clearwater Farm is managed by Jim and Joann Pipkin, along with their children, Jera and Jace. Now in their 90s, we’re blessed that Jim’s parents, W.D. and Bonita, still make the farm their home.

In the heart of southwest Missouri, we’re located just outside Springfield and invite you to stop in and see our program first-hand. Visitors are always welcome!
