Santa Rosa Ranch owners Gerald and Susanne Sullivan are offering their ranch and cattle for sale. As the largest registered Brangus/Ultrablack operation in the United States, the “River Ranch” is located on over 14,000 contiguous acres of leased and owned property along the Trinity River in Houston County, Texas.

Located in the region halfway between Houston and Dallas, the ranch is described as a “high forage-producing region and ideally suited” for cattle operations.

“Santa Rosa Ranch is on the forefront of this industry – from a genetic and technology perspective, all the way to the marketing and trade of genetics and beef on the global stage,” says Gerald Sullivan. “We feel the time is right and the opportunity is great for a new owner. Now, it is the perfect time for a new owner to come in, take over a turn-key operation and derive the full value out of what we built.”

By 2020, all of the Santa Rosa Ranch cattle will be available to be registered with the International Brangus Breeders Association, the official registry of the breed. While the registered herd is the core business for Santa Rosa Ranch, one of the most unique aspects is that all of the cattle are approved by the USDA for export to all major global markets for US beef, offering expanded opportunities on the worldwide stage.

Walter Tomlinson, principal of Statesman Corporate Finance, manager of the sale of Santa Rosa Ranch, says, “Everything about the Santa Rosa Ranch’s cattle operation is first-class. An opportunity of this quality and scale, operating predominantly on long-term leased acreage, is extremely rare and unique. The Sullivan’s have invested heavily in the development of a genetically superior herd and all of the related equipment and facilities are fully in place. The Santa Rosa Ranch is a turn-key operation that can continue uninterrupted under new ownership from day one.”

For more information, contact Melvin “Bud” Montang, or 515.710.7113. All requests for information must be made by the end of July 2019.
