Explore the West - Sitz Angus Ranch
Posted on January 3, 2018 by Tara Carr in The West
A practical, predictable and profitable program. These are the original principles that continue promoting the Sitz Family’s registered Angus herd.
What started as a small adventure in Nebraska during 1923 by Will and Frieda Sitz has since grown into a multi-location, thriving operation nestled in the “Big Hole” area of Montana. Now, being run by brothers Bob and Jim, the ranch’s legacy is carrying on strong.
The Sitz Angus Ranch operates on nearly 40,000 acres comprised of forest permits, leased private land, and deeded ground providing enough room to house all family members on the ranch.
Sitz family members are no strangers to hard work. It is important to both Bob and Jim to have their children with them on the ranch, just as they did with their parents and grandparents.
“The importance of having my kids work alongside me is that they understand what we are trying to accomplish,” Jim said.
Every Sitz family member believes they are fortunate for what they have as well as the opportunity to be a part of the ranching lifestyle.
“I’m glad I have the opportunity to grow up on the ranch,” Lane Sitz said. “Not everyone gets to be outside every day around livestock and cattle, and I’ve always enjoyed every part of it.”
At the end of the day, the Sitz family strives to better the cattle industry by raising bulls and heifers with proven performance genetics to meet the expectations of the progressive cow man or woman.
