The business was established in 1973, starting with 35 Angus cows with 3/4 Brangus blood bulls, the ranch started to establish a Brangus breed. The ranch bought bulls from the reputation breed Brinks Brangus. From that time on, the ranch bred cattle for a Brangus herd with a high standard of quality.
The ranch has grown in the past 48 years from 35 cows to close to 750. At the present time, the ranch has approximately 85% Angus cows, the bulls are registered Angus from reputation herds of Donop, LP and 44 Farm ranches.
At the present and in the future, the ranch will be offering weaned calves with all vaccinations, source and age verification, based on the VAC.45 program. We will be also offering open or bred replacement heifers, Brangus and Angus.
We currently offer most of our calves for sale on Superior Auction, but we also offer private sale of livestock.
