Owner – Al Comte testing equipment in early years
Dave Dahlberg was raised on a farm near Clearbrook, MN, which is 100 miles south of the Canadian border. He earned a BA degree in biology and teaching at Bethel and Augsburg colleges in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Dave bought his first farm shortly after college near Askov, MN where he taught high school math, science and coached BB and Cross Country. Meanwhile, he ran his own cow/calf operation. Then in the late 70’s he moved back to Clearbrook and took over his dad’s insurance agency and all while continuing to run his cow/calf operation. Since then, he also began selling livestock handling equipment built by Al Comte from Canada directly from his farm.
Later in the 1990’s he became one of the original founders along with Al Comte of the new manufacturing plant named “Real Tuff, Inc.” in Mobridge, SD. Dave loves selling cattle equipment and continues to run a 250 cow/calf operation. Our equipment proves it’s functionality, tuffness and simplicity at Dave’s cow/calf operation. This way he knows what works well and what does not so that the equipment can be tweaked as needed. In addition, Dave attends the livestock trade shows and visits with ranchers and farmers listening to their input while incorporating their great ideas too.
