Welcome to MC Ranch

MC Ranch
MC Ranch Welcomes You!MC Ranch is located in the scenic Northwest Georgia foothills. MC Ranch is owned and operated by Dr. Burton and Judy McDaniel and their four children Wes, Ali, Anna and Will.

Dr. McDaniel began raising Santa Gertrudis influenced cattle in 1970 and exhibiting Santa Gertrudis cattle in 1990. MC Ranch exhibited their first National Champion Female, Scarlet in 1992. Scarlet would go on to be the cornerstone of MC Ranch’s breeding program for the next twenty years.  MC Ranch has bred and exhibited countless Open and Junior National Champions Females and Bulls.  Most recently Will McDaniel exhibited the 2014 National Junior Heifer Show Champion, MC 202.  MC Ranch is proud to boast earning the Santa Gertrudis Breeders International Breeder of the Year Award 5 years in a row.

The Official SGBI NuGen ProjectWhile certainly proud of their accomplishment in the show ring, MC Ranch has turned their focus toward the integration of NuGen genetics into their herd. MC Ranch is partnered in the project with Wendt Ranch and Goodin Farms. The Official SGBI NuGen project has successfully reproduced the (3/8 x 5/8) NuGen foundation animal, using the best available genetics from the Brahman and Shorthorn breeds. The NuGen foundation animals are equivalent to Santa Gertrudis foundation sire “Monkey.” Their offspring are all registered Santa Gertrudis animals. NuGen animals offer Santa Gertrudis breeders the opportunity to dramatically benefit from increased hybrid vigor and heterosis when crossed with another Santa Gertrudis. NuGen cattle were developed to meet the current demands of the beef industry.  MORE>>
