ridge ranch is owned by Gary and Joyce Weishuhn (Justin's Parents)
and is located about 30 miles East of San Angelo TX. The ranch
runs along approximately 2 miles of the Concho River. We raise
cattle, meat goats and horses. We have started an intense deer
management program for whitetails and raise a few blackbuck antelope
We run a cow-calf operation that consist of Charlois
bulls and Angus cows and have been pleased with the growth performance
of our calves since using this cross.
We also run a commercial meat goat operation,
where we use full blood boer bucks and about
400 head of percentage boer does.
In the last few years we have implemented a deer
management program to increase the quality of our whitetails.
We are already seeing better deer, although this is partially
due to an increase in our rainfall this year. Other game on the
ranch include turkey, doves and quail. We have also started a
small herd of black buck antelope.
We raise a few Quarter horses as well. Although
our livestock are not very wild, we still use the
horses from time to time. Our horses are calm, smart and like
to work. There is nothing more annoying than riding a bad horse
when you need to get something done. This is why our stallion
and mares are chosen based on conformation and attitude. If you
meet our stallion you'll agree that there aren't many horses with
such a laid back attitude- much less a stallion! We believe there
is no reason to own a bad horse.
