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 look forward to showing our stock and visiting with friends — both old and new. We pledge to continue to do our best to help further the goals of your operation and work with you.
Current News From Lyons Ranch
Thank you for your participation in our 30th Annual Sale!
We had a great crowd at our bull sale this spring – our thanks to those in attendance and those online through DV Auction. We are grateful to have excellent help and sale staff. We are humbled by your support and feel glad our cattle are performing for you.
We sincerely thank you.

2018 has been a dry year for us.
Most years, we utilize prescribed burns on our native Flint Hills pastures to encourage new growth and combat woody plants and cedar trees. The last year has been a dry one for our pocket of Kansas, so we are planning on marketing some additional cows. (Check out our Facebook page for details.) Currently, we are locating hay for this winter from the areas that have been enjoyed good moisture. For now, we’ll continue to care for our cowherd and watch the sky. One thing is for sure — every day we are one day closer to receiving the precious blessing of water.
Karl sends the high selling bull north — Lyons Manhattan 6205!
The weeks after our March sale were spent delivering and loading the bulls to go to work for their new owners. We really look forward to seeing progeny out of these new herd sires. Seeing proof that Lyons Ranch’s genetics are working for folks is one of the most rewarding thing about being in the cattle business.
In the picture, Karl is loading Manhattan to head to OriGen bull stud in Montana. Manhattan’s new owner, ABS Global, reports good things about him and plan to have semen available for use this fall.
Thank you to ABS! Lyons Ranch is glad to work with you, and we’re pleased to have you promoting Lyons Manhattan 6205 as an exciting young sire in your superior Angus bull battery!
