Jan, Jeff and Brandon Johnson



“The Wedding Tree”

The Johnson family has been in the cattle business at the same location since the early 1920's.  Jan's grandfather, James Baxter Johnson, was the first owner of the farm and was followed by his son Ralph Johnson in the 50's and 60's.

Mainly a commercial operation for most of those years, Jan started and operated a registered Angus herd for a few years in the 70's and early 80's.

After the dispersal of the Angus herd, Kelly, Jeff, and Brandon concentrated on showing steers.  In Brandon's last 4-H years, Chiangus heifers were added to the show string, and three of these heifers became foundation animals for the beginning of RiverBend Chiangus in 1995.  The herd now consists of approximately 50 Chiangus and Angus cows.

RiverBend is a proud breeder of Chiangus cattle and believe that chi genetics produce the kind of cattle needed in today's market and will continue to meet these needs well into the future. RiverBend cattle are bred with the commercial as well as the purebred breeder in mind.  Look for the JRBF prefix the next time you buy cattle.

RiverBend is always ready to welcome quests and invite you to visit us in the beautiful Sequatchie Valley.
