We know We Belong to the Land

We know We Belong to the Land


 

Our livelihoods are tied to the land and because of this we go to great lengths to protect and improve our pastureland. 

Eastern-Red cedars – Oklahoma’s peskiest invasive species – threaten the state’s landscape by invading crop and pasture land and fueling wildfires. We make an extra effort to control them through our pasture maintenance program:

  • Identify, clear and burn Eastern-Red cedar trees.
  • Repair erosion issues.
  • Fertilize and sprig pastures with Bermuda grass in early spring.
  • Maintain pastures from weed and cedar regrowth by rotating controlled herbicide use and controlled burns.

To provide consistent, clean water sources for our animals, we fence cattle out of ponds and allow livestock access to the pond from a planned point of access. This protects the pond from erosion, nutrient and algae build-up and among other issues.

Animal Care


Animal Care


 

It’s our responsibility to raise healthy animals. 

We do this by keeping our livestock safe, comfortable and healthy through each stage of life.  On our family-owned and operated ranch, we have full-time ranch hands who employ the methods and techniques our management system, and we take steps to verify their compliance.

We’re certified through the Oklahoma Quality Beef Assurance program, which is program funded by the Beef Checkoff. This means our hands have been certified according to BQA program guidelines. By investing in proper job training we can help ensure risks to employees and animal health and safety are minimized.

Keeping the well-being of our livestock as our main priority not only keeps their quality of life high; it also makes our business more competitive.
