ABOUT THE RANCH
Holt River Ranch is a working cattle ranch and has been in the same family since 1906. Situated in the historic Post Oak Bend of the Brazos River, references to Post Oak Bend and the Ranch are found in historical texts and literature. John Graves mentions Post Oak Bend several times in his classic book ”Goodbye to a River”. Mention is also made in Mary Whatley Clarke’s book “Palo Pinto Story”. A lesser known book, “Post-Pioneers” by Juanita Lewis Hindman, devotes much of the book to life on the Holt River Ranch during the 1920′s. At one time numerous Indian tribes lived along the four miles of Brazos River frontage bordering the ranch.
Dr. Glenn Rogers is the fifth generation to own the ranch and is carrying on a tradition of land stewardship. Glenn has received conservation awards for his efforts in range improvements, complimentary to wildlife and livestock habitat. Dr. Rogers has spent the last 35 years serving beef producers and promoting cattle health in his various roles as a beef veterinarian. In the last two years Dr. Rogers has transitioned to the ranch full time focusing on the heifer development program and Grassy Ridge Consulting.
