Welcome to Triple Son Farms!
"A cattle ranch is more than land and animals. It is a connection to our past and a link to our future - it is a legacy of honesty, hard work, and heart."
- Paul Dufrene
Paul Dufrene has had a love for cattle as far back as he can remember. That love was cultivated by his grandfather, Harris Pierce, who had a small herd of Brahman influenced cattle dating back to the 1930’s. The seeds sown back then on a small farm set the foundation for the harvest of the operation he runs today.
Triple Son Farms (TSF), owned by Paul and Becky was named after their sons, T-Paul, Dustin, and Jacob. It began in the 1980’s as a small herd of commercial cattle. Paul soon realized the need for a Brahman-influenced breed that was hearty enough to survive and thrive in the south Louisiana climate. Unable to purchase enough black F-1 cattle, he undertook the task of raising his own.
Mark Gardiner, Gardiner Angus Ranch, Ashland, KS
"Paul Dufrene is a loyal Gardiner Angus Ranch customer, having purchased some of the most proven genetics the GAR program has to offer. Years ago, Paul realized the value of known genetics and selected Angus as the breed to complement his predominantly Brahman commercial operation. The Gardiner Angus influence in the Dufrene F1 herd has resulted in market-ready cattle with proven added value."
Chad and Julie Ellingson, Ellingson Angus
"Triple Son Farms has been a customer of ours for multiple years. After seeing them evaluate and study cattle it is clear that they have a strong commitment to finding and utilizing the best genetics possible. They study each detail from structural soundness to performance while not compromising the maternal components. They have purchased numerous cattle and every one of them are of a similar mold. Each bull and female has width, depth and performance. Not once have they compromised on buying quality. We have provided them with breed leading sire prospects and females from cow families that have stood the test of time on our ranch for over 70 years. After getting to know the Dufrenes I not only would call them superior cattlemen, they are cattlemen with tremendous integrity. They are people I fully trust and respect."

Kelly Schaff, Schaff Angus Valley
"Paul Dufrene at Triple Son Farms has taken a progressive step forward by adding proven performance and maternal Angus genetics to his program from Schaff Angus Valley, one of the oldest and most recognized seedstock nurseries in the world. The herdsires added to his program will transmit tremendous thickness, depth, muscling and pounds, while improving both structure and phenotype. They carry the authentic SAV prefix, which is currently the most widely used herd prefix in the beef industry and carries a reputation for consistent quality and value. The herdsires selected from the SAV program represent all the fundamental characteristics that are essential to mainstream cattlemen and will enhance the profitability of both their program and their customer base."
