Flying W Ranch is located in Crockett County, Texas 7 miles east of Ozona. Owned by Steve and Belinda Wilkins, the land has been in Steve’s family for 4 generations. The land is rocky, arid land that when there is enough rain will grow abundant native grasses that are excellent in nutrition. Our cattle have the fortitude to range in large pastures, while also can adapt in dryer times, and yet still breed and produce.
Our breeding philosophy focuses on line breeding our best and most productive cow lines and our foundation herd sires? lines to produce consistent genetics that will perform for our customers. The females in our current herd predominately trace back to 6 foundation cows that carry some of ABBA’s greatest genetics such as JDH Rex Manso, Sugarlands Rexcrata 1-229/3, and Lok-Mor-Suville 11.
Flying W Ranch?s foundation herd sires trace back to Imperator, Sugarlands Poncrata 100, JTW Didor Ferno Manso 449, Jk Sugar Crata 45 and WR Mr, Suva 203. Our cattle are based on production, we stress fertility, muscling ,overall conformation and soundness, eye appeal and function. Our line breeding for phenotype and genotype guarantees the genetic consistency so that our cattle will breed the way our customers expect.
