About Us

Winchester   Beef™   is   a   subsidiary   business   of   Winchester   Land   &   Cattle Co. Winchester     Land     and     Cattle     Co.     was     started     in     1912     by     John Winchester.   Mr.   Winchester   learned   that   the   Wyoming   Arapaho   and Shoshone   Indian   tribes   were   offering   land   at   a   very   minimal   price   to any   white   man   willing   to   buy   land   on   the   reservation,   and   willing   to show   them   how   to   farm   and   ranch.   He   bought   80   acres   and   started   the Winchester   Land   &   Cattle   Co.   Being   allowed   free   range   for   his   cattle   on the   Wind   River   Indian   Reservation,   Mr.   Winchester   began   to   add   to   the 80   acres.   When   the   time   came   that   he   was   no   longer   allowed   to   run   his cattle   on   the   reservation,   he   started   purchasing   land   in   the   mountains northwest of Dubois, Wyoming. After   John’s   death,   his   son   Albert   took   over   the   responsibilities   of   the ranch   and   continued   to   purchase   land.   With   the   private   land,   forest permits,   and   other   leases,   the   Winchester   ranch   had   grown   to   around 70,000 acres, and around 1000 head of cattle. A    five    day    cattle    drive    was    required    to    move    the    cattle    from    the summer    mountain    range    to    their    winter    range    on    the    original homestead. After    Albert's    sudden    death    in    1985,    his    son    Jack,    who    had    been working   on   the   ranch   since   the   50’s,   took   over.   Jack   and   his   younger brother   Jerry,   who   had   worked   on   the   ranch   off   and   on   since   the   60’s, worked   together   until   1992   when   Jerry   sold   his   shares   in   the   company and   started   his   own   ranch.   Jack's   son,   Larry   started   working   full-time on   the   Winchester   ranch   in   1983,   making   this   the   fourth   generation   for the Winchester ranch. After   the   1988   Yellowstone   fire,   numerous   grizzly   bears   were   forced over   the   mountain   from   Yellowstone   to   the   area   of   the   Winchester's summer    range.    The    Winchesters    dealt    with    the    grizzlies    killing    and eating   their   livestock   for   several   years.   As   the   bears   grew   in   numbers, the    Winchesters    lost    more    and    more    livestock,    making    it    virtually impossible   to   make   a   living   in   the   cattle   business.   It   only   took   a   few years   of   losing   cattle   to   the   bears   for   the   Winchesters   to   decide   to   sell and    move    to    an    area    that    was    free    of    the    grizzly    bear    and    wolf competition. In     2000,     the     Winchesters     sold     the     Wyoming     ranch     to     Nature Conservancy,   and   purchased   property   near   Parma,   Idaho   where   their Black Angus cattle graze peacefully near the Boise River.
