Lonesome River Ranch LLC originated in the beginning of 2012. Jeff purchased his father’s ranch after the dispersal of his family’s ranch, Summitcrest, in 2011. In the dispersal sale, Jeff bought a select group of cows as a start-up herd for Lonesome River. Jeff wanted to continue to raise registered Angus cattle and have a group of good bulls to sell every year in a bull sale. After raising cattle for 25 years for his families ranch, he knew it was what he wanted to continue to do as Lonesome River.
