Welcome to Top Notch Angus
Top Notch Angus is located at the foot of the Bear Paw Mountains in North Central Montana.
Top Notch Angus was established in 1991 by Marvin Cross. Upon his marriage to Patty Nissen in 2013, two herds were combined to create what is still known as Top Notch Angus. Patty's herd was created in 1990 when she and Larry Nissen purchased their first registered Angus. The Nissen Angus herd continued to grow until the time of Larry's death in 2010.
The joining of two herds created a strong cow base with Marvin and Patty both believing that the mother cow should be phenotypically correct, easy fleshing with plenty of volume while still weaning off a 600 plus pound calf.
We market our bulls each year in Montana's Northern Premier Angus Sale, held the second Thursday of April at Bear Paw Livestock in Chinook, Montana.
Visitors are always welcome!
