BMW Angus was born in 2000, just shortly after I married my wife Michelle. This marked the start of a concentrated focus on building a premier registered Angus program. We purchased our first set of registered Angus cattle from Meadow Creek Ranch located in Bakersfield, CA. For the first few years the selection process was very intense. We wanted to eliminate any low performing animals in an effort to build a consistent group of cattle that we knew worked well in our environment. From this rigorous selection process, we developed a set of cows and calves that were able to thrive and allowed our herd to grow rapidly. Our ranch is truly a family operation; without the work force of Chet and Terrie Wolf, Yvonne Mings (Michelle’s mother) and our two boys Brock and Blaine, all of this would not be possible. Cattle production is a family affair and it takes a community to get all the work done. Through hard work and focused management, BMW Angus has now developed from its original 30 head to the current herd of over 200 registered cows.
