Established in 2005 and located in Southeastern Oklahoma, Rafter JM Cattle Co. is a family owned and operated commercial cattle operation. We are a husband and wife team with five young children striving daily to live for God, to raise our children to love God, to respect and love animals, to appreciate agriculture and live the cowboy way of life! We go above and beyond with our herd, whether in the rain or shine, sleet or snow, we are there providing and caring for our cattle. We take pride in our cattle and strive to offer only the best that we possibly can!
Rafter JM Cattle Co. is a ranching-based agribusiness focused on the profitable, progressive, and sustainable production of premium quality beef. Rafter JM Cattle Co. strives to be a respected and responsible neighbor and an asset to our community. We strive to provide a family friendly environment, bringing honor and glory to God, serving our local church and community. We will be good and humble stewards of the land, providing wholesome food for generations to come. We respect and value our employees, partnering with them to develop for the future. We will leave a legacy that is ingrained with the values of a hard work ethic, a good name, and unwavering integrity.
We are a cow-calf operation that routinely retains and stocker our calves. We implement sustainable and progressive practices. We pride ourselves on our stewardship of the land, our contributions to the local community, and the legacy we are leaving for our future. We focus on operating in a way that glorifies God, being known for our honesty, integrity, quality and service. We UTILIZE the God-given resources, ENHANCING production, CONVERTING those resources into beef that will feed America.
In 2018, we expanded our operation. In 2020, we were blessed with the opportunity to expand yet again! With all of our calves, we wean, precondition and then stocker utilizing the Zoetis WeanVac program (Select Vac/Vac60), and we recently certified with IMI Global as NHTC, VNB, Source and Age Verified, Certified BeefCARE, Veg-Fed Approved, and BQA Certified! We retain stockers until they reach an average weight between 700 lbs and 800 lbs at which time they either go to market or we keep them and feed them out for freezer beef. We run a 300+ day grazing program, involving rotational and intensive grazing which includes both native and improved pasture. That includes both winter and summer planted crops such as cereal rye, oats, wheat, turnips, radishes, okra, vetch, sorghum etc. as well as hay and a customized commodity blend as needed and of course, free choice mineral. We plant different species for different seasons and for different reasons. We have made progress in leaps and bounds towards taking our entire operation towards Regenerative Agriculture! Regenerative Ag focus is more than just profit; its about soil health, minimizing erosion, minimizing the use of chemicals and synthetic fertilizers, and more! Its a holistic approach to agriculture and we couldn't be more proud to be part of this movement!
