McCurry Angus Ranch, a family-owned operation located in the Sandhills area of Reno and Harvey counties in Kansas, was named the 2015 Beef Improvement Federation Seedstock Producer of the Year.
McCurry Angus Ranch operates 2,000 acres near their headquarters, with satellite operations in Chase and Greenwood counties, which consists of tallgrass prairie pastures in the Flint Hills. They also operate an embryo transfer operation in Buffalo, S.D. for 150 commercial Angus cows.
McCurry Angus Ranch sells approximately 175 bulls each year in a spring production sale and via private treaty sales. The operation runs 400 registered Angus cows and 250 commercial Angus cows. Females are marketed via private treaty and spring-born commercial steer calves are sold through Superior Livestock’s online auction.
McCurry Angus Ranch began in 1977 with the marriage of two third-generation Angus breeders, Andy and Mary McCurry. They started with seven registered Angus heifers, no land, no facilities and no equipment. Today, 95% of the current herd traces back to those foundation females.
The Kansas Livestock Association nominated McCurry Angus Ranch.
