C Bar C Ranch began in 1950 and originally was home to many different types and kinds of livestock. As the ranch developed the Clark family focused on raising an admirable herd of commercial cattle. However the introduction of a Santa Gertrudis herd bull in 1990 changed the course of the business for good. The quality of the Santa Gertrudis breed inspired C Bar C Ranch to transition from a commercial cattle operation to the trusted Santa Gertrudis seedstock provider it is today.

The C Bar C Ranch herd consists of 50 registered Santa Gertrudis females that graze 120 acres in DeSoto, Missouri. We produce feed efficient, performance tested Santa Gertrudis seedstock, bred to perform in both the show ring and the pasture. Our females produce sound offspring that provide a competitive edge in the show ring and go on to work for the cattleman.

At the end of the day, our goal is to breed registered Santa Gertrudis cattle, built for performance and profitability. When buying from C Bar C Ranch, you know you areĀ investing in versatility. OurĀ Santa Gertrudis seedstock cattle that offer a competitive option for the showman but are a profitable choice for the commercial cattleman.
