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.
The state is very much connected with agriculture advancement and mining phosphate operations. The primary business in Florida is tourism. The climate is simple yet wet which makes freight trucking easy. LTL freight shipping is generally very reasonable due to the volume of stock moving through the state by means of rail and truck. Florida may not border different countries, but instead there is a thriving international port that helps to drive the cost and volume of freight through the state. Contingent upon the month, Florida freight rates can change because the tourism industry requires goods to be dispatched through the state consistently. Furthermore, the summer season can be considered a reason for increased Florida freight rates.
