Welcome to the Brite Ranch


Lucas Charles Brite “Luke” settled his herd of 140 head of cattle at the foot of Capote Mountain, Presidio County, Texas. Brite Ranch purebred Hereford operation began in 1904 when Lucas Charles Brite bought registered heifers from the Wyoming Hereford Ranch and registered herd sires from Gudgell & Simpson. Mr. Brite took breeding principals to another level when he closed his herd in 1914. He began raising his own sires, avoiding the pitfalls of inbreeding by carefully selecting bulls and heifers for line-breeding. Read more on our history page!
