Welcome to Shamrock Nook Red Angus. Located in southern Wisconsin, Shamrock Nook Farms are run by brothers, Joe and Jim Dunphy. We are the fifth generation to farm this land settled by our Irish ancestors in 1845. In 1989, after a dairy barn fire, we bought our first Red Angus cattle out of Montana. Building our Red Angus herd has been an important part of our lives over the past 30 years. 

At Shamrock Nook Red Angus, we concentrate on the production of profitable seedstock, emphasizing calving ease, maternal traits, fertility, quiet disposition and performance. Our cattle are bred to balance the ever-critical calving ease trait with high growth and desirable carcass traits.

We offer cattle for sale through private treaty and a fall sale. You will have the chance to take advantage of our selection process, and then chart your own herd's breeding direction. It’s been 11 years since we had a production sale and have decided it’s time to do it again. We hope you can join us on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 1:00 CST, on the farm and DV Auction, for our Females of Fall Sale. We are excited to be working with Hornung Red Angus, Johnson Family Cattle, Bowden Red Angus and Welsh Prairie Red Angus to offer influential females from the best maternal cowherds in Wisconsin. View the catalog and check out the videos on DV Auction.


Thanks for taking the time to visit our site. Our hope is that Shamrock Nook cattle will bring you some of the same things that they have given us – a great way of life and a sense of real pride! We look forward to visiting with you, so give us a call or drop in any time!
