In August of 2010, Hook-N-Horns Ranch expanded to include cattle raising as a branch of operation. This venture began with the acquisition of 53 bred heifers, one commercial bull and one registered Black Angus Bull. The herd has grown to 61 cows with 15 first year heifers.
Hook-N-Horns has successfully sold Black Angus cattle to CR Freeman’s Feed Lot since 2011. Collectively HNH cattle have produced an average of 56 calves per year. The entire herd is overseen by the expert guidance and care of Dr. Joe Max Freeman, DVM.
All cattle raising efforts comply with Global Animal Partnership (GAP) standards. GAP is a program that ensures cattle are provided with adequate food, water and shelter throughout the cow’s lifetime. All HNH cattle are fed on a diet of wheat hay, cattle cubes and natural grass.
