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.

The main herd knows when they are going to fresh pasture….no calling necessary and the move is done in 5 minutes! We are moving our fall herd every 2-3 days right now, while calving, to fresh pasture. We are doing our best to keep them on a high plane of nutrition and leaving a significant amount of forage behind. We are right at 100 calves on the ground in 17 days.

This bull…wish we had 30 just like him. He just turned 4 years old, and has checked all the boxes thus far. He will be on display at the upcoming @isabeefmasters performance bull sale in 2 weeks. If you are looking for a bull with performance, EPDs, the ability to “hold up” in any environment, and cover cows in big country, we hope you join us. Selling 135 @isabeefmasters and @sanpedroranch bulls October 2nd, at Producers Livestock in San Angelo, Texas.

Moved the main cow herd today into the last paddock before we move them into the “calving” paddocks. It’s almost time!

Ungrazed vs grazed. The paddock on the left side of the tposts was skipped, and the paddock on the right was grazed for 3 days with 250 cows. The grazed paddock was 130 acres. We are moving fairly quick right now through the paddocks we are grazing for several reasons.

It won’t be too long now and hunting season will be upon us here in Texas. It’s a long awaited chance for those who love the outdoors and the pursuit of wild game. But more importantly, it’s a chance for all of us to spend time in wild places with family and friends. Slow down this season and remember….measure your success afield in memories rather than inches or bag limits. What is your favorite quarry to pursue? Comment below, we would like to see which species is the most favored!

T-minus 3 weeks and we will be weighing and tagging new born calves daily. It seems like yesterday we were finishing up the 2020 fall calving season, yet here we are starting another fall calving season. Where does the time go?!!

Ranching rolled into one picture…cattle, big sky, green grass, and a windmill. This coming 11 yr old cow sure is enjoying life.

Better days have arrived. From Jan-Aug 2018 the ranch received just under 8” of rain. Then in Sept/Oct 2018, we had a pulse of moisture totaling almost 13”. However, Nov 2018 through April 2021 (30 months) brought a historic drought in which the ranch received 20” of rain over a 2.5 yr period. Fortunately we didn’t have to destock and finally have had some consistent rainfall over the past 3 months. The rangeland has responded just as we hoped it would. It’s tough to understand at times, but remember, manage for the tough times not the good times, and the good times will be that much better!

The dark red cow on the right will turn 15 in a month, the cow to her left, 8. They have both fleshed out very well over the past several months post weaning. It’s incredible that the coming 15 yr old cow, pregnant with her 14th calf, looks the way she does. These cows have been on native rangeland since weaning, no feed. Longevity and low inputs in a cowherd….equate to $$$$! It’s hard to argue the fertility, efficiency, and longevity of the Beefmaster breed.
