We chose the Beefmaster breed because of their weight gain abilities, their hardiness, and their extremely thorough grazing habits. All our show heifers, replacement heifers and bulls are hand-raised. The goal with our herd is to provide top quality cattle that are top breeders and weight gainers.

We have been raising Beefmaster cattle since 1987. We started when our son, Chris was young, breeding his show heifers while he was involved in the Junior Beefmaster Breeders Association. Our love of the Beefmaster breed led us to begin phasing out our commercial herd to focus on raising productive and profitable registered Beefmaster cattle. Today we raise registered cattle that are bred to give both the weekend rancher and the full-time cowman the kind of cattle they need to meet the standards of the beef cattle industry.
