The Garriott family has been in the purebred cattle business since the mid 1950's.
Starting with Shorthorns,
they rose to prominence in junior events and quickly moved into the seedstock business.
Ox Valley continued
with the breed until the advent of Continental cattle. Grandfather David Garriott
was a very early leader in the
Fullblood Maine-Anjou breed and its organization. Tommy and Denise continued with
the breed and developed
a following across the U.S. Garriott Ranch won events including 1993 National Champion
Bull and 1997 Gold
Standard Bull Futurity in Denver. Along with purebred Maine Anjou the family sold
many youth their 4-H champion steers and heifers.
Third generation Crede started showing on the Maine-Anjoe Junior National circuit
at age seven. The family shared many accomplishments along the way. In 2007 boer
goats entered the picture. Starting with breeding stock, the focus soon changed to
club goats. In early 2012, Crede went to work full-time at Hummel Livestock refining
his skills in show preparation and sale management. In late 2013 the opportunity
to advance to ownership led him to Hamilton, Texas where he currently runs a small
operation of elite club goat does in partnership with Bosque Valley Reproduction
Center. Rena and Cody Lynch’s guidance is both welcomed and appreciated.
Two locations are now incorporated into Garriott Ranch, the original ranch in
Scottsburg, Indiana serves Midwest clientele and the Texas location focuses on southern
Texas majors and the
Oklahoma show wether and doe customers. Both barns have goats for sale private treaty
