Santa Rosa Ranch has announced that Billy McClure has joined the operation as Manager, overseeing the registered and purebred Brangus and UltraBlack development program. General Manager Kent Smith welcomed McClure, his wife, Brooke, and children, Emily and Aubrey, to Santa Rosa Ranch.
“We are pleased to have Billy join our operation because he reflects the commitment and values that we have for producing the best Brangus and UltraBlack cattle in the market and standing behind what we do, for the success of our customers,” Smith said.
McClure joins Santa Rosa Ranch following time with some of the most reputable operations in the industry. As the son of a Jonesville, La., row crop farmer and cattle raiser, Billy moved to Rosebud, Ark., as a young man and joined Caldwell Farms, where he eventually became manager of the Angus, Brangus and commercial cow/calf operation. He then arrived at Camp Cooley and served as assistant herd manager underneath Ken Hughes before moving to Chimney Rock Cattle Company in Concord, Ark., as ranch manager, overseeing the registered herd of Brangus cattle.
McClure brings a wealth of management and breeding experience and compliments the progressive program at Santa Rosa Ranch. McClure is excited to join a program that is committed to producing some of the best cattle in the Brangus and UltraBlack breed while keeping an eye to the future and the success of their customers.
“Santa Rosa Ranch has an incredible amount to offer to this breed and this industry,” McClure said. “There is a lot of potential in the cattle business today, and I am proud to join Kent Smith, Gerald Sullivan, and his daughter, Kelley, and take on their slogan ‘Making The Best Breed Better’ because I believe that they are, and I’m excited to be a part of it!”
