In 1864, Henry Sieben traveled on foot and by wagon from Illinois to Montana Territory.  From freighting to cattle and sheep speculation, Henry was an entrepreneur.  By the end of his life he had amassed two majestic ranches.  His two daughters, Berneice and Margaret, each inherited a ranch and the legacy was launched.

Four subsequent generations have maintained the ranch at Adel, south of Cascade, Montana. Each generation has expanded the ranch through acquisitions or leases. After a long history as a sheep ranch, Cooper Hibbard now manages primarily cattle at the Adel ranch.

Chase and Cooper Hibbard work together closely to ensure family legacy continues and thrives.  While careers take fifth generation family members in a variety of directions, commitment is strong to ensure Sieben Live Stock Co is a many generation family business.
