About

3 Bar H Ranch

Stewarding the land, and raising livestock in the natural way God created. Raising them on natural forage promotes healthy cattle, benefits the soil and environment, and delivers the most nutritionally superb meat on the market.  

OUR STORY

We grew up as farm kids and always heard from the conventional cattle growers that there's very little to no profit in raising cattle.

In 2014 we started raising commercial cattle while trying to implement some more low input practices. After learning about Greg Judy and also Joel Salatin we realized that we needed a breed that was grass efficient and a program that would be sustainable and profitable even on a small scale. In 2020 we purchased our first set of ten South Poll heifers and a bull through Greg Judy.  That was the start of our intensive grazing operation and we have since added St Croix Cross parasite resistant sheep to our ranch.

The ranch is a realization of our dream to work together as a family, caring for the land and raising livestock the right way. Raising gentle, grass genetic cattle and sheep is a way to share with others the opportunity of a sustainable and profitable operation. You don't have to have 100 cows to make a profit in raising livestock!

We are a Christian family and we believe that God's Word is the ultimate authority for all areas of life.

"And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." -1 John 5:11-12

OUR RANCH

At 3 Bar H Ranch, we aren't just raising livestock,  we're seeking to go back to the original design for animals and the land. We run a low stress operation that creates an environment that produces gentle livestock. 

All our livestock are on an intensive-grazing program. This means they are 100% on grass (and a little hay at times through the winter), being moved to fresh grass approximately every 24-48 hours, and broke to hot wire. They are given a free choice of 20 different minerals; this ensures they get an  ample supply of whatever minerals are lacking in the forage.

Our Program's Benefits

  • Low input- no deworming, vaccinating, supplementing, etc.
  • Increased soil fertility
  • Increased forage production
  • Natural weed control
  • Increased forage utilization
  • Improved drought management
  • Extended grazing periods
  • Consistent livestock monitoring
  • Parasite control
  • Minimized or no disease and illness

These practices produce the healthiest livestock available. Whether it's for breeding stock or meat for your family's table, the results of grass fed livestock are phenomenal. 

It's the way God intended for animals to live; therefore, it will always lead to the best results.

Whether for breeding stock or to fill your freezer, we deliver a product you can trust. Our cattle and sheep are 100% natural.
