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.

Who else enjoys a good Sunday morning breakfast? It’s safe to say that Sundays are meant for a big breakfast and time spent with family.

We thought this picture was symbolic in many ways. Primarily, it illustrates how we often forget that multiple species use the same habitat. Furthermore, the need to manage a system holistically, rather than focusing on a single species.

The BEEFMASTER female…arguably the most efficient and productive female in the cattle business. She can thrive in any environment with little input. This cow is 10 years and has a phenomenal September born heifer calf at her side, which is her 9th calf in a row. We have not received a drop of moisture since August 5, 2021 and she hasn’t missed a beat…a true testament to the breed. We are not sure where we would be right now in the cattle business, if it weren’t for the BEEFMASTER female.

This picture would be a WELCOMED sight right now. We are 152 days (August 5) since our last measurable rainfall event over 0.10”. Historically, the 60 day period spanning the months of September/October is our wettest period throughout the year. However, we did not receive a drop of rain during this time frame in 2021. Unfortunately, January-March are not great rainfall months for us either. We manage for these extended periods of drought, but hopefully history doesn’t repeat itself in the coming months. The wildlife, cattle, and plants sure would welcome a change!

This buck was too awesome not to post. Congrats @wildbillrussell on a true, south Texas, brush country monster. There are not many bucks that are pushing 30” on their inside spread. Truly a unique whitetail.

Only one more sunrise and two more sunsets left this year. It’s hard to believe this year is almost over as it seems like it just began. Where does the time go? We are not sure, but we are glad we get to spend most of our time outside, working on a piece of land we all cherish. Get outside, slow down, find your wild place, and make the most of the last hours of 2021.

Less than 2 days until Santa Claus arrives…hopefully you asked for snake boots because that will be the only critter moving Christmas Day with the forecasted temperatures!
