About Mann Angus


Mann Angus was founded in 1988 when C.P. Mann purchased his first heifer from his employer upon his graduation and completion of employment at Michigan State University.

Prior to that purchase, Mann had been a student worker at the University’s Cow Calf operation and a member of the MSU Livestock Judging team. The tutelage of Dr. Dave Hawkins, Dr. Dennis Banks, Dr. Harlan Ritchie along with the farm Manager Pete Sweeney,  Dave Walker and the Herdsman Carl Buehrly gave Mann a great foundation of knowledge to get started . Thirty years later we are still building on that foundation.

With this  initial purchase Mann started to build his own program which continues today with a huge assist from his good friends Ron, Lynn. Bill and Judy Hinrichsen.  The Hinrichsen’s  kept the program going at their Kansas Ranch during a time when Mann needed to step away from his operation due to career demands. 

The help of the Hinrichsen family is the reason the genetics of that original purchase are still running strong in the herd today.  They have also sold many great cows to Mann over the years, further improving the Michigan based herd.

Today the C.P. Mann and Family ranch runs 50 registered Angus cows and a small commercial herd.  Commercial calves are retained and fed out for our freezer beef customer’s enjoyment.  Headquarters are located on 310 acres near Imlay City Michigan.  Guests are always welcome to visit.
