Rock ridge ranch is owned byRanch Gary and Joyce Weishuhn (Justin?s Parents) and is located about 30 miles East of San Angelo TX. The ranch runs along approximately 2 miles of the Concho River. We raise cattle, meat goats and horses. We have started an intense deer management program for whitetails and raise a few blackbuck antelope as well.
We run a cow-calf operation that consist of Charlois bulls and Angus cows and have been pleased with the growth performance of our calves since using this cross.
We also run a commercial meat goat operation, where we use full blood boer bucks and aboutRanch 400 head of percentage boer does.
In the last few years we have implemented a deer management program to increase the quality of our whitetails. We are already seeing better deer, although this is partially due to an increase in our rainfall this year. Other game on the ranch include turkey, doves and quail. We have also started a small herd of black buck antelope.
We raise a few Quarter horses as well. Although our livestock are not very wild, we still use ranchthe horses from time to time. Our horses are calm, smart and like to work. There is nothing more annoying than riding a bad horse when you need to get something done. This is why our stallion and mares are chosen based on conformation and attitude. If you meet our stallion you?ll agree that there aren?t many horses with such a laid back attitude- much less a stallion! We believe there is no reason to own a bad horse.
