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.
A year was set aside for research and education of different breeds. This research led him to N-Bar Ranch in Montana, Gardner Angus Ranch in Kansas and J.D. Hudgins Brahman Ranch in Texas, all who were known for excellent genetics. These three well-respected names in the business became the cornerstone for the cattle of Triple Son.
TSF now runs 800 head of registered and purebred Angus and 250 registered J.D. Hudgins Brahmans on 3500 acres of Louisiana land. These coastal pastures range from four feet above sea level to four feet below sea level. The vast amount of grasslands accommodates 1-1/2 acres to each cow. Cattle raised in this neck of the woods easily adapt to any other climates and prosper well throughout the country.
In the past thirty years, Triple Son Farms has carved out a niche market in the Angus/Brahman F-1 cattle industry. Hard work and a dedication to excellence have been rewarded in the sales arena. TSF cattle have won big in F-1 sales throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas including such venues as San Antonio, Houston, Texas National ABBA Sale, Beaumont ICA, and Louisiana F-1 ABBA Sale.
Mother nature deaIt a harsh blow to southern Louisiana in the form of Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Ike and Gustav. This reality and the fact that hurricanes are a continuing threat to the gulf coast sent Paul looking for higher ground. In 2008, he expanded the cattle operation to Texas. Triple Son Farms, Trinity River Division, is located 15 miles west of Crockett, Texas. This ranch is now home to the registered Angus and Brahman herd, while the F-1 cattle have expanded in numbers and remain in Louisiana. In an ever increasing attempt to add thickness, depth, and quality to the Angus genetics, stock from Schaff Angus Valley and Ellingston Angus, both located in Anthony, North Dakota have been incorporated into the operation. These two ranching establishments are directly related to the original Martin Schaff
family and continue that legacy of great genetics.
With such quality of heifers came great opportunities for the development of Angus, Brahman, and F-1 Brangus bulls. Because these hearty animals have been raised in southern Louisiana, they too can easily adapt to any area in the southern U.S. The offspring produced by Triple Son bulls are known for calving ease, rapid growth, high weaning weights, increased milking output, and good fertility. Customers have come back some 15 years because of the added value of what TSF bulls have brought to their herds. Bulls are sold by private treaty and in major bull sales throughout Louisiana and Texas.
Triple Son Farms came into existence because of Paul's grandfather's love of cattle. That love continues to be cultivated into the next generation as Jacob returned to join Paul in ranching after graduating in Agriculture Economics and Communications at the University of Kentucky in 2011. TSF has benefited greatly as he has taken a strong leadership role in the day to day operations, as well as long term planning of herd and ranch management. His knowledge, commitment to excellence and his work ethic continues to strengthen the foundation on which TSF was built. 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. The legacy of Triple Son Farms is in indeed in good hands for future generations to come.
“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 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."
- Mark Gardiner, Gardiner Angus Ranch, Ashland, KS
"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."

"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."
