Gardiner Angus Ranch
Gardiner Angus Ranch (GAR) is owned and managed by Mark, Greg and Garth Gardiner. All three families live on the 48,000-acre ranch. We have kept performance records since 1964 and collected carcass data on our cattle since 1970. GAR uses a total artificial insemination breeding program on more than 2,000 Angus females. In addition, we implant more than 3,500 embryos per year. Each year we sell more than 2,600 Angus bulls. Our bulls produce calves with excellent growth and superior carcasses. The bulls we are producing today are much better for these traits than ever before. Our breeding program will give even faster improvement in the future.
We are proud to be a founding stockholder of U.S. Premium Beef (USPB). GAR customers who qualify, may use GAR shares to sell their fed cattle in the USPB program without charge. Through 2018, GAR and their customers have received an average of $91.49 more per head, in grid premiums and patronage dividends, by selling their cattle through USPB than they would have from selling them on the cash market on 92,000 head of cattle. That is a total of $8,417,080 received by our bull buyers using USPB shares owned by GAR. If you want more consistently high quality cattle in your cowherd and more money from producing what the consumer market wants, call us or stop by the ranch.
