Small Livestock LLC
In 2001, our purebred Charolais herd began with five bred cows, purchased from the Hoodoo Ranch in Cody, Wyo. Starting from the ground up, and working together as a family, we’ve slowly built our program, propagation desirable genetics through embryo transfer and utilization of proven AI sires and herd bulls. In November of 2020, we purchased Sandhill Cattle Feeders in Winnemucca, Nevada.
Building upon this solid foundation, we’ve utilized complimentary outcross genetics, to develop a contemporary base herd, exemplifying function, moderation and carcass merit.
At Small Livestock LLC, our family produces high quality Charolais cattle, designed to add value and efficiency to your operation. Developed in northern Nevada and southern Idaho, we focus on genetics that work. Cows that work on the ranch. Bulls that work in multiple production settings and environments. Feeders that work in the lot. And carcasses that work on the rail.
The Small Livestock ranch (and summer range) is located at 6,000 feet elevation, near the tiny town of Mountain City, Nevada. Formerly a bustling copper mining town, the now quiet ranching community lies 80 miles north of Elko, Nevada and approximately 16 miles south of the Idaho/Nevada border.
This steep and rocky terrain favors an atmosphere ideal for developing cattle built to function; Structure and utility are a must.
During the winter months, our entire Charolais herd is relocated to Sandhill Cattle Feeders in Winnamucca, Nevada (our feed yard, purchased in November 2020). While there, we manage the pairs (eventually weaning and backgrounding the calves), develop and breed replacement heifers and offer our bulls for private treaty sale.
