About 2JT Ranch
Growing up on large cattle operations, ranching is in our blood and our desire to get back into that lifestyle led us to where we are today. Unable to purchase a large ranch and run traditional cattle we opted to get into ranching on a smaller scale by raising cattle that are smaller framed and required less acreage. Most of our herd are a 0 frame score to a 1, putting them on the large end of miniatures and into the Classic size.
In addition to our little cow herd, our kids have chickens and sell fresh eggs. We enjoy being outside on our place in the country and raising our kids out of town where they can enjoy the outdoors and experience growing up on a ranch as we were both fortunate enough to do.
We currently have herefords, dexters and some crossbreds. Our stocks' frame score sizes range from '00' to '1'. We are out in the pasture with our cattle daily and they are used to people and easy to be around. We strive to have the cattle to meet your needs whether it is for backyard beef or registered seedstock.
