He has been involved with the ranch his my life with the exception of two years at UNL Ag College.  They were strictly a Hereford cattle operation until the 1980’s when they developed a four breed composite.  During the late 1990’s they fazed out of that composite and went straight Red Angus, which is still their primary breed and I gotta tell ya, Gordon has some really nice cattle.  Over the last eight years their beef production has been entirely focused on natural grassfed beef cattle, selling both breeding stock and grass finished cattle.  With their current genetics they have developed early maturing cattle that are grass finished in 18 to 20 months.
