Welcome to the Solana Ranch in Salado Texas.
The Solana Ranch is a one of a kind 9000 acre cattle and wildlife ranch that stretches more than 13 miles over the Central Texas Hill Country. The abundance of water, supplied by the Salado Creek, Rumsey Creek and Buttermilk creek which are fed by more than 18 active natural spring, gives the ranch a scenic landscape and a vital resource for our Wildlife and Cattle. The diverse property creates the perfect habitat for Whitetail deer, Rio Grande Turkeys, Ferrel Hogs, Dove, and the various Exotic game on the ranch.
The Solana Ranch was purchased in contiguous tracts between 1950 and 1984 by Frank W. Michaux because of the beautiful landscape, the over 6 miles of creeks, and its close proximity to the state capitol, Austin. Originally registered Hereford Cattle were raised but in 1973 we converted to a registered Simmental cattle operation. It was also in 1973 that we introduce exotic game to the ranch. In 2000 the ranch started our Contract Cattle Operation, bringing in cattle owned by other ranchers, taking care of them from breeding to birth and maintaining the herd throughout the year. Our staff and the ranches facilities have made this a tremendous success.
