100th Meridian Ranching focuses on excellent stewardship while charting a path through which modern ranches can operate efficiently, profitably and sustainably into the future. We are located in the Texas Panhandle and have ranching roots in the area spanning over 125 years.   Our enterprises consist of low-input cow-calf production, bred heifers and custom grazing.

In our opinion, stewardship of resources is critical, and the improvement of everything we manage is a worthwhile pursuit. We work hard to ensure that future generations may reap the benefit of our efforts. Soil and plants are the foundation of this business, and we conduct our business in a way that benefits the people, land, livestock and wildlife.
