Local, Grass-Finished Next to Missoula

Our cattle are raised and pastured literally right next to Missoula.


In fact, our Miller Creek Ranch lease borders the City of Missoula to the south.  The Oxbow Cattle Company Headquarters are located just across from Lolo on Oral Zumwalt Way, a beautiful and fortunate place to call home. Directly to the south of our property, we have the privilege of leasing the Sapphire Ranch.  This ranch is a wild and spectacular part of the world within ten miles of Missoula. The owner has placed the ranch under a conservation easement thus ensuring it will remain open and undeveloped country for years to come.

The Bitterroot River is the lifeblood of our operation at all our locations. It provides the oxbows and lush pastures where our cattle enjoy a good, healthy, and LOCAL life!
