Campman

Matador Ranch lies primarily on the Rolling Plains of West Texas, although the western edge touches the Caprock (or High Plains) escarpment.

Matador Ranch is a 130,000-acre working cattle ranch that supports about 3,700 head of commercial cattle annually, along with Quarter Horses.

Matador Ranch has been known for its quality Hereford cattle for many years.

Today, we breed Hereford and Angus mix Black Baldy cows, which are paired with Charolais cattle to produce that much sought-after “smoky” Charolais cross.

A long-term focus is applied to preserving and protecting the land at Matador Ranch.

Our many land stewardship efforts include improving the grazing system.

We’ve developed several miles of pipeline to move water where it is needed, implemented rotation grazing, and established strategic fencing practices.

We also conduct prescribed burns to eliminate invasive plant species.

The success of our stewardship practices has been recognized by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department’s Lone Star Land Steward Award.
