In 1895 James Jensen moved to Boulder, Wyoming, from Denmark. The winter of 1896, he lived in a dugout and shoveled snow off the grass to keep his 7 cows and 3 horses alive. A daunting task in mountain country that has often been called "the nation's icebox".

As it became impossible to purchase bulls from real cattlemen, bulls capable of holding up in tough range land conditions, it became necessary for our family to begin raising them ourselves and started Lucky 7 Angus. A program where cattle are not overfed, not pampered, and developed in conditions as harsh as commercial cattlemen's.
Lucky 7 registered stock forced to weather a severe blizzard. Notice, there is no protection for cattle on this place.
Cows and bulls are raised on large short grass pastures, up to 38,000 acres and 10,000 feet in elevation. Emphasis is placed on structurally sound cattle with good feet and legs in order to travel and graze many miles.

Sale bulls are summered on large acre gravelly short grass pastures in Daniel, Wyoming, where they will be PAP tested at 7,580' elevation after 4 months there.
For high elevation breeders all bulls will be PAP tested with the highest standards in the industry. Our minimum standards are: 7000' elevation, at least 90 days at elevation, and by the best possible technician.
