Welcome to Lyons Ranch
Lyons Ranch is located in the Flint Hills of Kansas, one of the most productive native grazing areas in the world. We — the Lyons and Langvardt family — feel blessed to have three generations working together raising the Angus cattle we love. We don’t breed for extremes, but focus on the predictability of balanced traits including fertility, calving ease, performance, efficiency and carcass value. Our cowherd is made up of productive females from strong cow families with proven genetics, good attitudes and great mothering ability – cows that we like working with every day. We think you will appreciate this too.
Join us for our Lyons Ranch Superior Genetics Bull Sale held annually on the first Monday in March! We always look forward to visiting with our loyal customers and meeting new friends. We appreciate your support and friendship and pledge to continue to do our best to help further your goals. We look forward to working with you!

Springtime means getting ready to go to grass.
As grass season approaches, there are so many things that need to happen. Working calves and preg checking fall cows, going around fence and spring burning. If the conditions are right, we use prescribed burns on our native Flint Hills pastures in April to encourage new growth and combat woody plants and cedar trees.
Controlled burning can restore and rejuvenate native grasses; this makes for increased gains for stockers and pairs. The wind, moisture and smoke have to cooperate, but it is very beneficial to the prairie and its use and preservation.
On the road again.
We have started delivering bulls, so you can turn out your new herd sires as your cows go to grass. We really look forward to seeing progeny out of this set of bulls!
Bulls sold in all price ranges – we averaged $6125 on 102 bulls, from $2800 to $21,000. In this picture, Karl is loading the high selling bull to go to OriGen bull stud in Montana. Lot 67 is a Hoover Dam out of a Thunder daughter. He was purchased in the sale by ABS Global. We are excited to work with them!
