A Working Cattle Ranch…

Focus Ranch is historically one of the original working cattle and dude ranches that invited guests to share in the day to day activities. It officially opened its doors to guests in 1938 although prior to that, friends and  relatives would visit the ranch each summer. When it became more important to make money to pay the bills, guests were charged for their stay.

Horseback riding and cattle are the hallmarks of Focus Ranch. The horse is used in the manner for which it was bred, to work!

We Are Unique…

Ranching for tomorrow is a big part of what drives our management plan. We believe it is our responsibility to take care of natural resources in a way to maintain them or make them better.  The impact of our actions might be noticeable in our life time but the future generations will definitely benefit from those that are sustainable.

2022 Focus Ranch

Plans For The Season

We are proceeding ahead with plans for our 2022 season. Our yearling cattle our bought and are on pastures in California, to be trucked here in May when conditions permit. Most of our employees will arrive in early May to get started with the necessary work at the beginning of the season. Horses will need ridden to get them back in shape and riders will no doubt feel the same need after a winter off. All the fences require some degree of attention, spring runoff will need managing which usually means ditch repairs. With part of the crew being new, this will be a time to learn a lot about the ranch and some new skills.
