Welcome to Strait Ranches

Strait Ranches’ Santa Gertrudis herd was established in 1951 by Y.C. Strait in Big Wells, Texas. Today, Strait Ranches is owned by Y.N. Strait and family of Carrizo Springs, Texas with operations in Dimmit, and La Salle counties. Strait Ranches is still driven by the need to produce fertile, functional, efficient beef cattle. Quite simply our Santa Gertrudis cattle have been selected to perform in the tough environment of south Texas. We are focused on continuous improvement and identification of superior genetics through DNA collection, performance testing and phenotypic evaluation.
