Darrell and Shana Pitchford - owners of Pitchford Cattle - have grown up with these cattle, exhibiting them as Junior Exhibitors. They have made a living off of these Santa Gertrudis cattle. From when Darrell worked as a Ranch Manager on Pecan Hill in Belleville, Texas, to the present when we’ve had the honor to produce our own cattle that have made impacts to this breed we could have only dreamed of. These cherry-red cattle are very near and dear to our family. Darrell and Shana have raised their kids in this breed. Casey and Gracey Pitchford have exhibited these Santa Gertrudis cattle literally since they could walk. Now Casey and Gracey both have children, who they expect to raise and exhibit Santa Gertrudis as well. I guess what we are trying to get at is, Pitchford Cattle is in constant pursuit of ways to innovate and push the Santa Gertrudis Breed forward. Because this breed of cattle is our life.
