-Welcome to Lyons Ranch-
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 are blessed to have three generations of the Lyons and Langvardt family working together to serve the beef industry and raise the Angus cattle we love.
At Lyons Ranch, we have a balanced approach to Angus genetics and a commitment to our customers. Our goal is to continue to raise proven, profitable cattle that will serve this industry and its stewards.
We don’t breed for extremes in any one area, but focus on the predictability of important traits. Our cowherd is made up of productive females from strong cow families. The base of any herd, the momma cow, is often overlooked when cattle are bred solely on paper, so we pay attention to fertility, calving ease, performance, efficiency as well as carcass value. We strive to produce easy keepers with good attitudes and great mothering ability, cows that we like working with every day.
For more than three decades we have hosted our annual Lyons Ranch Superior Genetics Bull Sale on the first Monday in March. We are so thankful to our repeat customers and the good friends we get to work with year after year. It goes without saying though -- we look forward to forging new relationships and learning and sharing with one another.
Make plans now to join us on March 6th, 2023, for our 35th Annual Angus Bull Sale!
Current News From Lyons Ranch
Governor Kicks off 2022 Beef Month
We welcomed Kansas Governor Laura Kelly to the ranch to proclaim May as Beef Month!
As she read and signed her official proclamation, we drove a group of first calf heifer pairs up behind Governor Kelly. Others in attendance included Kansas Secretary of Ag Mike Beam, several state legislators, commodity group representatives including the Kansas Beef Council and Kansas Livestock Association, Kansas Farm Bureau, Kansas Corn and the Department of Agriculture, as well as media members.
Politics aside, it was an honor for us to help kick off the summer beef grilling season and bring an awareness of beef’s supreme role in our state’s economy.
Manhattan Making his Mark
Lyons Manhattan 6205, the ABS owned sire who sold in our 2018 sale, is making his mark.
An impressively smooth and stout son of Manhattan, Lot 20, was the top selling bull in our March 2022 sale. The Manhattan calves as a whole met with good acceptance and were the second high selling sire group.
Manhattan's daughters are proving to be good mothers and easy to settle.
Manhattan is owned by ABS Global. His $B and $W indexes are at near the top of the breed, and his mother is designated a Pathfinder Dam by the American Angus Association.
Traditional and sexed semen is available through ABS.
We sincerely thank you all who participated in our 34th Annual Sale on March 7, 2022. See our Sale pages for more information about that offering.
We are looking forward to hosting our 35th sale the first Monday in March next year! The bulls are developing nicely and truly look to be the best set yet. Sire group information and data coming soon!
