Lloyd DeBruycker

Lloyd Henry DeBruycker, 87, of Dutton, Montana died from natural causes on 1 September, 2021. 

Much-loved by his family and highly-respected by his peers, his remarkable understanding of the cattle industry and the need for exemplary customer service has made the DeBruycker family business what it is today – a high quality, trusted household name. 

Lloyd and his wife Jane are widely renowned for being trailblazers of the Charolais breed over the past 60 years, and DeBruycker Charolais is a highly sought-after name in the U.S. cattle breeding industry. 

He created a new standard for the quality of the Charolais breed in America and that will endure,” says Dr Francisco Javier Ruvalcaba Coyaso, “I’m sure right now he’s in the Charolais Hall of Fame!”


Buy the best bulls in the business

Over the decades, Lloyd and Jane received many industry accolades for their work, and under their leadership, Debruycker Charolais has raised some of the finest Charolais bulls in the breed: Ali Mark, Mr. Perfect, Cigar, Trademark, Zen and Zeus – all names that North American cattle producers know to be solid breeding stock.

His love for life and his passion for always moving forward have been passed on for generations, and for that his family, customers and friends are eternally grateful.
