Welcome to Coyote Creek Ranch (CCR), located 26 miles southwest of Steamboat Springs and 13 miles south of Hayden, Colorado. We think it’s the most beautiful place on earth and are dedicated to raising quality Angus cattle as well as to the stewardship of the land.
The goal of the CCR Angus program is to provide both the commercial and purebred breeder with heifers and bulls that are mountain ranch born and raised. Coyote Creek cattle are bred for calving ease and low PAP, emphasizing maternal traits, thickness and muscle on a moderate frame, and carcass quality. Cows and calves that do not measure up to our standards are culled yearly to ensure a consistent herd.
All of our cattle have been PAP tested and are raised at 7,100 feet. Mother cows have to function in long, cold winter conditions and are fed native grass hay with some cake supplement before calving. These cattle have to earn their keep. We start calving in February every year to ensure that buyers of our yearling bulls and heifers will acquire cattle that can perform. We invest in proven bloodlines and focus on genetics that give us the balance of performance and quality. We hope you’ll have an opportunity to put our seedstock to the test in your herd.
Our mission is “Elevating Your Herd with Balanced Genetics.” Please stop by for a visit any time!
