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!”

Santa Rosa Ranch, with locations in Crockett and Navasota, Texas, produces seedstock and purebred Brangus and UltraBlacks for commercial producers as well as registered operations.

Santa Rosa Ranch Purchases Steiner Ranch Herd

Bastrop, TX – After a century in the cattle business and more than 40 years of producing top quality purebred Brangus cattle, XS Steiner Ranch Brangus has dispersed their entire cattle herd to Santa Rosa Ranch. More than 1,000 head of females will be relocated to Santa Rosa Ranch along the Trinity River in Houston County, Texas, and will complement the growing herd of purebred Brangus and Ultrablack cattle that have been developed in their program.

“This is a bittersweet time for our operation,” commented Bobby Steiner of XS Steiner Ranch,  “but I am gratified that this premium cow herd, coupled with the already strong Santa Rosa Brangus operation, will definitely ensure Brangus bull and replacement female buyers with an unequaled opportunity to have access to the most premier Brangus cattle anywhere. I congratulate Gerald Sullivan, his daughter Kelley and their family, as well as General Manager Kent Smith of Santa Rosa Ranch because I know they offer an outstanding program for this herd to join.”

“We are proud to incorporate this stellar herd of cattle into our operation,” added Kent Smith, General Manager of Santa Rosa Ranch. “One would be hard-pressed to find a set of cattle with this reputation for quality and productivity than what Bobby and his family at Steiner Ranch have developed over time. This is a great opportunity for our program.”

Santa Rosa Ranch was founded by the Gerald and Susanne Sullivan family and has locations in Grimes and Houston counties. Under the guidance of GM Kent Smith and Manager Scott Broadus, Brangus and Ultrablack seedstock are developed from the genetic foundation of Brinks Brangus, Gardiner Angus and V8 Brahman cattle. Recently, the program expanded to the historic Rattlesnake Ranch/7J Stock Farm in Houston County, offering expansion opportunities for their current purebred and commercial operation as well as bull development, replacement female and weaned calf programs.
