Botts Angus Ranch is family owned and operated by Beau and Kristin Botts along with our sons, Lane and Tilden. We are located in Enterprise, Oregon, at the base of the beautiful Wallowa Mountains. We run 300 purebred Angus cows and 300 commercial cows, farm 1200 acres of a variety of hay and grain, and raise a few show pigs.
Beau has always had a love of the agricultural industry. It all began in 1989 when he was given his first bummer calf, Broccoli, whom he taught, with the help of his dad, to pull a pony cart. He continued to build from the ground up and by the end of high school was running 50 cows and farming 250 acres.
Throughout the years, Botts Ranch continued to grow both in the commercial cows and the farming. We are very grateful for the opportunities we've had in both areas, from purchasing quality bred heifers to leasing cows as well as range and farmland. Our greatest opportunity to date came in 2012, when we purchased half of the Rollin' Rock Angus program from Bill and Jennifer Davis out of Sydney, Montana. After having 7 production sales with Raymond & Sons, Inc. as part of Rollin' Rock Angus Genetic Partners, we are excited to have our own sale at home in Enterprise, Oregon, on February 25th, 2021. We have been blessed to be part of the Rollin' Rock family and appreciate everything they have done for us over the years.
We strive to breed cattle that are highly functional, with heavy wean weights and responsible frame size that fits our environment and feed resources. We breed for eye appeal, good feet and udders and a docility that we can trust the entire family can work with. By sticking to these guidelines, we are able to raise bulls that can be turned out in rough country, cover a set of cows and come back in the fall problem free.
Whether you're interested in bulls, heifers or need help marketing your calves, we're always happy to help you. If you're ever in the area, stop by for a visit and we would love to show you around.
