John B. Slaughter?s life was devoted to the cattle business over a period of 63 years in 3 states. John was to become one of the great names in ranching in the Southwest. After buying and selling ranches in Texas, New Mexico and Utah, John B. Slaughter moved his brand, the ?U Lazy S,? to Garza County, Texas in 1901. By 1905 he had increased the ranch holdings to 126,227 acres, and in 1905, moved his family to the ranch headquarters, 12 miles south of Post, Texas. In 1907, Slaughter sold 50,000 acres to C.W. Post for the town of Post to be built.
John B. Slaughter was very active in his ranching interests up to the time of his death on November 11, 1928, a few weeks shy of his 80th birthday. Mr. Slaughter had spent a full day in the saddle the day before his death. It was written in his obituary, ?When John B. Slaughter died, no paunchy weakling passed to the great beyond, but a stalwart specimen of Texas manhood, hard, fit, and unafraid.?

John B. ?Jay? Slaughter, Jr., a Yale graduate, took the reins of ranching operations upon his father?s death in 1928. As co-owner with his mother, Mrs. John B. Slaughter and sister, Mrs. Frank (?Mamie? Slaughter) Lott. Jay Slaughter was active not only on the ranch, but also in making Post, Texas a better place to live. In 1940, Jay passed away at age 49.

As Slaughter?s only male heir, John Francis Lott got the call to manage the U Lazy S from his grandmother, Mrs. John B. Slaughter. At that time, John was living in Kansas City, Missouri with his wife Ryla and their children John F. Jr., Patty and Linda. Working in the accounting department of Ford Motor Company, John brought a high level of organization and attention to
Garza County ranching. His progressive thinking introduced to ranching; airplanes, improved nutsritional and growing practices, as well as brush control. John?s priority during his tenure was to conserve the land for his children and grand-children. He turned management duties of the U Lazy S Ranch over to his son Jack in 1962.

Today, the original U Lazy S Ranch is owned by descendents of John B. and Belle Slaughter; Jack Lott, Patty Lott Kirkpatrick, Linda Lott Bouchier and Bob Macy. Jay Lott now raises cattle and Paint horses on the same land used by his great-great grandfather 102 years ago. The rest of the family, five generations worth, are scattered across Texas. Slaughter?s entrepreneurial

spirit has passed to descendents who are involved in ranching, banking, oil & gas, real estate, e-commerce, advertising and retail. But perhaps most importantly, the spirit of family to remain close and work together has prevailed for 102 years.
