Our Family History

As a five-generation family in the cattle business we understand the need for quality breeding stock. Dating back to the 1860’s, the Baca and Elkins families were part of the pioneering and ranching families of Texas. The Baca family settled in Flatonia, Fayetteville County, Texas and the Elkins settled in the Snyder and Post Texas area after their migration from Europe. 

We are very proud to carry on the way of life our pioneer ancestors 
began. Our love of the cattle business has made our lives very rewarding. 
We have raised cattle and have been involved in the cattle business in one form or another our entire lives. We discovered the Texas Longhorn breed and decided to try our hand at raising world class longhorns about 7 years ago. We purchased our first Longhorns just for their looks and gentle traits. To date we offer New Mexico Texas Longhorn beef and live cattle through our operation. Owning ranches in Grants, NM and Aztec, NM, we base our headquarters in Aztec, NM.
