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
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 ran a small operation
of elite club goat does in partnership with Bosque Valley Reproduction Center.
