About Bar X

Bar X Ranch got its start in 1912 when Peter and Earl Vandehei, my great grandfathers, trailed 12 head of Hereford cows to a small acre patch 15 miles west of Lagrange, WY. Here they stuck a stake in the ground and said “this is my Homestead”. The ol’ boys had sod houses and grit. Fast forward 100 years and 5 generations later we may not raise hereford cows but we still take great pride in living this life. 

Just like parenting, it takes a village to run Bar X Ranch. My wife, Taryn, and our two kids, Zoey and Lakson live and work the ranch together along with trusted mentor and life-long friend Mike Vinton.

we expect our cattle to
portray these 5 things


Few acres to run many cows

Good Mothers

Who has the time to mother all the calves if the mother isn’t?


No one likes to check an ugly cow!

Well Tempered

There are too many gentle cattle in this world to mess with a wild one


Small time frame x little resources = big calf
