Welcome to McKenzie Ranch

We are in the business of advancing and promoting Shorthorn genetics. We invest in great people and cattle. Every decision we make stems from a profound respect for the lineage and history of the Shorthorn breed, and a vision to fortify and advance its contribution to the beef industry.

We place immense value on the maternal characteristics that define the Shorthorn breed. In every cow family that has gracefully withstood the test of time, we see a chapter of an ongoing saga. This methodology goes back to our very first Shorthorn heifer purchased in 1988.

We are in this together. Rather than going it alone, we’re teaming up with like-minded breeders, believing in the strength of partnerships and community. We see the power of collaboration and invest not just in superior genetics, but in the passionate individuals who champion the Shorthorn breed. To both longtime friends and new connections, thank you for becoming a part of our story!
