Established in December 2015, Russell Cattle Company, LLC is owned and managed by B.J. and Sharah Russell along with two little helpers, Huck (4), and Bowen (1). We live in Loma, CO, where we farm/ranch 150 acres for our cattle operation. We are 5th generation cattle ranchers and we run 50 cow/calf pairs in conjunction with our families 150 cow/calf pair operation. We specialize in raising Simmental/Angus cattle with superior bloodlines known for excellent grade quality.
Our cattle spend most of their lives on pasture in our Blue Mesa high country location near Gunnison, CO. At our Blue Mesa location they enjoy 3,000 acres of prime high country grass and clear mountain fresh spring water. They spend the remainder of their lives in our lower valley pastures in Loma, CO until we move them to our feedlot facility in Loma to finish them on corn silage, alfalfa, and ground corn for the final 90-120 days. This final period of finishing ensures you, the consumer, will get a healthy, top quality product.
A little bit about us……..
B.J. is a graduate of Colorado Mesa University with bachelor’s degrees in Business Management and Marketing. Sharah is also a graduate of Colorado Mesa University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management. B.J. and Sharah have been raising their own cattle since they received their very first pair of pregnant heifers as a wedding present in June 2007. Over the past 9 years the herd has grown substantially and now they are excited to start providing locally raised beef to the community.
We have lots of friends in surrounding areas that offer top quality products that we would like to partner with eventually so stay tuned. In addition to this we will also begin to offer Suffolk Lamb and pork options hopefully by the end of the year. Our goal is to promote Colorado agriculture and do our best to provide products that are “Colorado’s Finest”.
Our first official delivery was in early April 2016 and we’ve been delivering every week since!
