Cattle Ranching

Cattle Ranching at the HPR.  The HPR runs a commercial herd of Black Angus cows bred to Braunvieh bulls, with a carrying capacity of 500-750 mother cows, plus bred Half-blood Braunvieh/Angus Heifers.  HPR Braunvieh Bulls come from Golden Link in Firth, Nebraska.  The HPR is committed to raising natural beef, exclusively on the ranch and is Montana's largest Braunvieh/Black Angus producer. 

The HPR believes in clean, lean beef raised on natural grass and pristine water.  We believe that the natural beauty in which we raise our beef, the genetics of our Cows and Bulls, and the way in which we nurture and manage our cattle sets us apart from other beef producers.  The HPR is owned and managed by people who believe in focusing on quality of beef, rather than quantity of meat.  The HPR was awarded the 2002 Braunvieh Commercial Breeder of the Year Award, presented by the American Braunvieh Association at the National Western Stock Show in Denver.

Ranchers -- Stewards of the Environment. The HPR works very closely with the USFS, BLM, and state of Montana on grazing management practices.  Our "blend" practice of management requires us to manage public lands as we do our deeded lands -- responsibly.  We subscribe to the scientific and empirical evidence that responsible grazing improves and sustains the health of forage, land, and wildlife.  The HPR is a permittee of USFS, BLM, and State of Montana lands for grazing, recreation, and hunting.

The Range at the HPR.  The HPR is a relatively large ranch, comprised of several thousand deeded, State of Montana, U.S. Forest Service, and BLM acres.  The topography of the HPR is lush creek bottom land and open brush and sage covered hills that look up to timber-covered slopes on the National Forest.  The climate is mild and the annual precipitation is approximately 12-14 inches.
