|| Ratcliff Ranches (RR), a cow/calf operation
headquartered in Vinita, Oklahoma, is a commercial and
registered Angus, SimAngus and F1 Hereford Angus
seedstock producer. To meet consumer demands and
our customers’ needs, RR is focused on developing a
better breed of cattle.
RR is comprised of more than twenty-six thousand
acres that includes RR headquarters and three satellite
ranches including a growyard located in NE Oklahoma,
and one ranch located in SE Kansas. Operationally the
Ranch currently runs over 4,000 cows with herd
numbers averaging over 8,600 head.
Our goal, for our operation as well as for our beef
customers, is to ultimately provide more pounds of beef
with fewer head of cattle. We achieve this goal through
strategic selective genetics and disciplined breeding
Every rancher has a set of genetics. What makes the RR difference is our genetic base, our determination, and the
technology we employ to build the ideal beef genetic profile.
Owned by the J.L. Ratcliff Family, RR is committed to improving genetics and utilizing cutting-edge tools such as the HD50K
Genomic test. This test enhances our already solid genetic program.
In addition, RR has a commitment to animal health and humane handling practices. The RR herd health management plan
includes a comprehensive health and vaccination protocol. In our commitment to humane handling practices, Dr. Temple
Grandin designed our Blackwell facility. Dr. Grandin is renowned for her research within the livestock industry on animal
behavior with expertise in humane animal handling practices. Handling animals in a safe and humane manner is not only better
for their well-being, but also for our bottom line.
With more than thirty five years cattle experience you can rest assured that RR stands behind their cattle, values every
customer, and looks forward to welcoming you into our Ranch Family.
We encourage you to visit Ratcliff Ranches anytime you are in the area. Our door is always open!
