Bonchasse Land & Cattle Co. was an idea long before its inception. The Coleman family has been involved in farming and cattle ranching for many generations. In 1996, the purchasing of the land that would become Bonchasse Land & Cattle would be Linc Coleman’s chance to honor his family’s heritage. The original tract of land that Mr. Coleman purchased contains a small bayou that originates on the property, Bonchasse Bayou. The meaning of Bonchasse derives from the two French words, bon and chasse, meaning good hunt. It was on this land in Grand Cane, Louisiana that Mr. Coleman and Bonchasse Land & Cattle would emerge as one of the premier Brahman and F1 breeders in the state and the gulf coast region.
Having grown up around one of the top Hereford operations in the state, Mr. Coleman was influenced by Hereford genetics. When it was time to put his heard together, Linc looked for a genetic cross that would be better adapted to the southern climate. He chose the American Brahman female as the foundation to provide excellent females for the beef industry. The scope of the operation remains focused: on good stewardship of the land and excellence in beef cattle production.
Bonchasse Land & Cattle has continued to grow over the last two decades and now operats one of the largest Brahman herds in the state of Louisiana. At Bonchasse Land & Cattle we are committed to pushing ideas forward but never pushing values aside. These values and commitment to excellence are evident in the F1 females that consistently set the mark in sales and have won numerous national awards. More importantly, these females perform in the pasture.
