Santa Rosa Ranch to sell largest Brangus/Ultrablack Cattle Operation in the US


CROCKETT, TX—— Santa Rosa Ranch, the largest registered Brangus/Ultrablack cattle producer in the United States, has announced the plan to market and sell one of the most unique cattle operations in the country. The ‘River Ranch’ location, with over 4,500 head of Brangus and Ultrablack bulls, registered females and commercial cattle, is located on over 14,000 contiguous acres of leased and owned property along the Trinity River in Houston County, Texas. This unique location, situated equidistant between Houston and Dallas, is a high forage-producing region and ideally suited to develop seedstock, cow/calf and stocker operations. Santa Rosa Ranch is owned and operated by Gerald and Susanne Sullivan, their daughter Kelley and General Manager Kent Smith with the sales process being managed by Statesman Corporate Finance, LLC.

“We set a target to become the “biggest and the best” in the Brangus/Ultrablack breed – and we are. We reached our goal. Now, it is the perfect time for a new owner to come in, take over a turn-key operation and derive the full value out of what we built.”, says Gerald Sullivan, owner of Santa Rosa Ranch. “Santa Rosa Ranch is on the forefront of this industry – from a genetic and technology perspective, all the way to the marketing and trade of genetics and beef on the global stage. We feel the time is right and the opportunity is great for a new owner.”

By 2020, all of the Santa Rosa Ranch cattle will be available to be registered with the International Brangus Breeders Association, the official registry of the breed. While the registered herd is the core business for Santa Rosa Ranch, one of the most unique aspects is that all of the cattle are approved by the USDA for export to all major global markets for US beef, offering expanded opportunities on the worldwide stage.

“Everything about the Santa Rosa Ranch’s cattle operation is first-class. An opportunity of this quality and scale, operating predominantly on long-term leased acreage, is extremely rare and unique. The Sullivan’s have invested heavily in the development of a genetically superior herd and all of the related equipment and facilities are fully in place. The Santa Rosa Ranch is a turn-key operation that can continue uninterrupted under new ownership from day one.” says Walter Tomlinson, principal of Statesman Corporate Finance.

Information about the purchase of Santa Rosa Ranch is being managed by Statesman Corporate Finance. For more information, contact Melvin “Bud” Montang, or 515.710.7113. All requests for information must be made by the end of July 2019.
