Schrader Ranch is located between the Flint Hills and the Smoky Hills on the western edge of tall grass prairie in Central Kansas.  The operation relies on the forage grown in its native pasture, as stock piled standing grass is used for winter feed.  For the most part, hay is only used when there is excessive snow cover.  Heifers are calved in small pastures close to the headquarters and cows are calved in large pastures throughout the ranch.

Because of the reliance on purchased feedstuffs, large calving areas, and minimal labor, our focus of quiet, easy-keeping, convenience-trait cattle is not just talk, it is a necessity.

The operation continues to increase the number of bulls and females sold every year.  Approximately, seventy SimAngus and Charolais bulls and 200-300 commercial calves are sold annually off the ranch.

The only practice that differs from this general ranch philosophy is our composite Charolais matings.  A select few females are mated to certain “show bulls”.  Progeny from these matings are typically sold for youth projects and not retained for seed stock production.
