Colorado is the tenth largest cattle producing state in the US. Beef is the state’s number one agricultural product produced. There are over fifteen thousand producers of beef in the state. Over three million cattle are being raised at any given point. One in three counties in the state are economically dependent on cattle production. Colorado is headquarters to both the National Cattleman’s Beef Association and the US Meat Export Federation. The state has many big ranches that make up a large part of the cattle produced. Here are a few of the larger ranches in Colorado.
Trinchera Ranch used to be the largest ranch in the United States. It consisted of over one hundred and eighty thousand acres. Half of the land eventually was donated to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation.
Silver Spur Ranch consists of over one hundred and fifty thousand acres. Specializes in breeding heifers and seedstock.
Chico Basin Ranch located in El Paso County covers eighty seven thousand acres. It is one of the largest beef cattle ranches in the state. It also is a popular tourist attraction ranch.
SLW Ranch is one of the oldest family owned ranches in the country. It consists of over twenty two thousand acres. This ranch is listed in the National Register of Historic Places for the state.
Colorado ranching requires lots of land to feed the cattle. Supporting a ranch requires a lot of supplies and products. Cattle farming use supplies like handling equipment, corral systems, feeders, and water tanks.. Transporting these items around can cost a rancher percentage of his or her profits. We work with ranchers finding less expensive freight transportation to supply their needs.
California shipping is extremely busy in this state with numerous import and export channels. Although the geography is extremely diverse with plains, mountains, and deserts, the climate is quite mild in most of the state. California freight is both fast and extremely high volume. The state is well-supplied with highways and railways as well as international ports in both Los Angeles and San Francisco and an international border shared with Mexico. California also has two large international air travel hubs. The major cities often have severe traffic problems which can delay trucking in and out of these centers. The cost of freight shipping in California can vary greatly due to the many factors involved in the state's commerce, but LTL and truckload shipping often have very low prices simply because of the quantity of goods moving through the state.
