About Our Ranch
Small herd size drives our operation. Livestock First Ranch is a family-owned cattle ranch bordering the South Leon River in Comanche County,Texas. Land-health and animal-health give us our business and its model. The land is a blend of trees and grass, a bit wild and a tad tamed, friendly to wildlife and domestic stock among native pastures of bermudagrass and cultivated plots of winter wheat. We raise Black Angus and Black Angus-Akaushi cattle following rotational grazing methods dependent upon seasonal forage. Our Black Angus herd is grass-fed and finished. Angus-Akaushi cattle are grass-fed and grain-finished in pursuit of finished cuts graded prime. Cattle range among five pastures, moving as a closed herd when forage decreases to encourage pasture regeneration and deter weed proliferation. Cattle are fed hay grown on-site during late summer and early winter. Livestock First Ranch is a cattle ranch. To accompany our cattle herd we also raise pastured chicken and pork. Our chicken is never medicated and beginning September, 2020 will eat a Non-GMO, No soy, No corn grain crumble. Like our cattle and chicken, hogs are raised outside in small groups able to root, graze or scratch as they please. Beef, chicken and pork are processed at small Texas-owned USDA facilities.
