Ranch operates under a range management system that
matches the number and types of livestock with the
land’s ability to produce forage. The result is high
quality products and a healthy, thriving landscape. The
country is harsh and demanding, loaded with limestone
and often plagued with drought.
The Hillingdon landscape consists of brush, forbs, and
weeds. All of these plants have a purpose if you have
the right animals to use them. All livestock is selected
for adaptability. If they cannot adapt, they are culled.
Registered Angus cattle, Fine Wool sheep, and Angora
goats graze the hills of Hillingdon Ranch. This type of
animal mix allows for use of forage that would otherwise
be useless because of different animal diet preferences.
This also creates less stress on the vegetation. We
breed for a dual purpose animal; one that is adapted to
this country and yet still produces the best product
