Ranch Operations

Custom Livestock

Today, the Mahon Ranch maintains a cow-calf herd of approximately 250 head.  Yearling calves, along with 500 additional head purchased at auctions around the west are kept in feed pens until reaching 900 pounds when they are sold to commercial feedlots to bring them to market weight of 1,200 pounds.  Into the future, the Ranch will continue its livestock operations with a greater emphasis on specific breeds and unique herds.



Feed and Forage

Currently the ranch provides feed and forage products to many farmers and animal owners in the region. Providing feed will continue to be a major focus of the Ranch and includes corn silage, feed corn along with alfalfa, pasture, orchard grass and grain hays.

Equestrian

Keeping with the Western theme, the Ranch is working to renovate some of its facilities to support the equestrian interests of the community.  This will include boarding, training and tack. Please check back with us soon for updates on our new equestrian center. 

Ranching is not just a business, it’s a way of life.
