-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. That said, we look forward to forging new relationships and learning and sharing with one another.
If you have any questions about our theory or cattle, please get in touch. And make plans now to join us on March 6th, 2023, for our 35th Annual Angus Bull Sale!
Current News From Lyons Ranch
We sincerely thank you all who supported our program at our 34th Annual Sale on March 7, 2022. See our Current Sale page for more information about that offering.
We are already 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.
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 recent sale. The Manhattans 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 was purchased by ABS Global in our 2018 sale. 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.
ANGUS JOURNAL COVER-BOY
Several Angus Journal magazine cover images published in the last few years were photographed at our south ranch near Alta Vista, Kansas.
This fancy fall bull calf represented the theme of one magazine: “Bred for Brilliance”.
