Welcome to San Pedro Ranch

The San Pedro Ranch is located in Dimmit and Maverick Counties, 30 miles southwest of Carrizo Springs, Texas. Twenty-six different soil types, spanning over 23,000 acres, support a very diverse plant and animal community. The ranch is low fenced, and offers some of the best fair chase hunting opportunities for native white-tailed deer. Over the years, state of the art wildlife management practices have produced some of the highest quality trophy white-tailed deer in Texas, as measured by the Boone & Crockett Club.

Visit the San Pedro Ranch, and you will see approximately 325 head of hardy, gentle, registered Beefmaster cattle. We have genetically selected our cattle to thrive in an arid, oftentimes, harsh environment. Our San Pedro Beefmaster bulls reflect such distinguished lineage as LBar 5502, Ranger’s Pride, Casey, Tres Hijos, Frenzel, and Nolan Ryan bloodlines. Our heifers descend from cows who have consistently weaned a calf every year, even in difficult drought conditions.

At the San Pedro, we try to make the most of nature’s bounty by practicing holistic management; weighing each decision against the over-arching goal of improved native habitat and a healthier ecosystem. The San Pedro Ranch converts sun, soil, water, plant, and livestock resources into a valuable food source. We like to say that we help nature do what she does best. Please enjoy exploring our website for additional inforamtion.

Hard to believe we are basically 2 months away from hunting season kicking off here in Texas (dove season). For those of us who hunt, we are aware of the decreasing numbers of hunters, and in turn, we are failing to recruit the next generation. Furthermore, Texas is losing open spaces as fast as anywhere in the nation. Start planning now and take the time this fall to introduce a child to hunting and the outdoors. Don’t worry about the harvest, focus on the importance of the outdoors for our well being. Teach a child to love the outdoors and all that wild places have to offer. Conservation of open spaces is going to become even more important with each passing year, and if we don’t have the next generation ready, then our efforts will go unnoticed. Remember this, “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” -Henry Moses Cass

Coming 2-yr old bulls are looking great! These guys are 20-21 months old. We have 48 bulls that will go to San Angelo in a couple weeks to join @isabeefmasters bulls to start the last stage of their development before they sale on October 3 at the 59th Isa Performance Bull Sale. The bulls will go on a 50-day feed test in late July. All bulls are DNA typed, enrolled in whole herd reporting, and have full performance data. We hope to see you at Producers Livestock Auction on October 3! @beefmasterbreeders

AGED. If these old concrete water pilas could talk, they would have some good stories to tell. Most of these on the ranch were built starting in the 1940s. Because the wells across most of the ranch are not very “strong”, we have to store water so that when we arrive with cattle during our rotation, water is available. Water is pumped via solar wells into these large concrete pilas, then gravity flown to surrounding troughs. Water is life, irregardless of your occupation.

LONGEVITY. This ole girl is 13 years old and currently pregnant with her 12th calf. Currently, 22% of our herd is 10 years old or older, with our oldest cows being 15 years old (3 of them). In our opinion, two traits lead to profitability in a cow calf operation: 1) Fertility, or the ability of a cow to get rebred, and 2) Longevity, or the ability of a cow to get rebred and raise a calf every year past 8 years of age.

MUSCLE. This bull will be 5 years old in September. He has filled out very well. We weaned his second set of calves in May, and he had a very nice set of calves, with many being top performers. Not to mention he is an aggressive breeder in a large multi-sure herd. A bull can have a great phenotype, outstanding performance, and great EPDs, but that doesn’t always translate to a high libido, or will to compete and breed. Furthermore, just because a bull looks good and has great numbers, doesn’t mean his progeny will do the same. So far, this bull has checked all the boxes.

NEW LIFE. T-minus 75 days until we start calving. We have almost 250 females in our fall herd to calve out in Sept/Oct. We walk through our calving traps every morning and tag/weigh each calve....there will be no weekends at this point. With that being said said, we hope everyone enjoys this upcoming weekend!

WILD THINGS. Why are we drawn to all things nature? Whether its seagulls on a public beach, or a grizzly bear in the wilds of British Columbia, we all have an instinctive fascination with wild things. The problem, not everyone has an opportunity to activate that instinct. Furthermore, that opportunity decreases by the day as we loose more and more open spaces. Sure, a public beach is not a million acres of untamed habitat in Alaska, but it’s also not a paved, 5 acre parking lot. It’s all about perspective. Find your open space, and reconnect with nature.📸 @slauren23
