WELCOME TO BLIND BADGER RANCH


Your source for Maine-Anjou, Angus, and Simmental Cattle.


Blind Badger Ranch is located south of Fort Morgan, Colorado and is owned by Jim Hett and Bud Gamel. They established the operation back in 1999, and currently run 550 head of Maine-Anjou, Angus, and Simmental influenced females, which is the foundation of their breeding program. The ranch consists of 17,500 acres. 6,600 acres are dryland wheat, corn, millet, and fallow. They also farm 900 acres of irrigated grass and alfalfa hay. Pastures account for another 10,000 acres of the ranch.  Their breeding program consists of an extensive artificial insemination (AI) and embryo transfer (ET) program. A group of heifer, steer and bull calves will be hand picked and broke in preparation for private treaty sales throughout the year.
