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.
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
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.
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.
