We will be bringing to life the Lesikar Ranch Alliance in the Spring of 2020. The idea and drive behind this move is to give all of our breeders a chance to showcase and sell the great genetics they have bought from us over the years as well as allow other breeders an opportunity to have access to these cattle to improve their herds.
The Alliance will be made up of members who have purchased Lesikar genetics over the years and used bulls similar in style to achieve promoting the type of cattle that we love and sell. The breeder will have to use Lesikar females to be eligible to become a member in the Alliance. Over time we hope to see a huge number of breeders making use of this opportunity and tool to market the great cattle and calves they have developed. This will give all members another tool to help increase the profitability of their operation.
These members will be listed on the Lesikar Ranch webpage and even have a chance to include information about their programs here to further the use of an efficient style of Angus Cattle.

I might be new to the Registered Angus business, but with a family history of ranching here in Northeast Texas since 1860, I’ve got a good foundation. I started off this Registered Angus herd with some great genetics from 44 Farms, Express Ranch, Deer Valley Angus, Gardner Angus and Lesikar Ranch. Let me just say, the ability to have cattle gain weight (the $EN EPD expressed as cow energy requirements) without buying feed can decide if you’ve got a profit or no profit at the end of the year!
I currently have 123 animals running in moderate drought conditions and I do not use any feed supplements. No corn, no grain, no hay at all. They are raised on pasture (a rough attempt at rotational grazing), mineral and a handful of cubes once every other week to keep them coming to the corral.
Under these dry conditions my pasture is struggling to keep up. The Lesikar Ranch genetics are excelling despite the heat. These girls maintained their body condition right up until the end of July when I noticed they were losing a little weight; most have 4-6 month old calves on them.
Many of my neighbors are feeding hay and/or supplementing feed at a rate of 10 to 40 pounds a day just to keep their animals in condition.
For my herd, a feed-cost of just $3 a day times 123 animals equals 369 dollars a day. $369 x 30 days = over $11,000 a month.
If you’re curious to see these results for yourself, stop on by, and see how the Genetics of Lesikar Ranch Angus Cattle can make a difference in performance, and your bottom line.
True Confession – I was a Charolais man, until I discovered Lesikar Ranch Black Angus. Those big whites were just too big, ate too much and mostly skittish by nature and the blacks always sold better than the whites at the sale barn.
I have found my Lesikar Black Angus to be thrifty and efficient in frame, easy birthing and good maternal instincts, docile and easy handling. Somehow, they just know what to do in the pen, the alley and in the trailer. Even the bulls are docile and easy handling. These Lesikar calves always do well at the sale barn.
I am in the process of phasing out all my remaining Charolais and phasing in Lesikar Blacks to improve and complete my herd over the next two years. I give Jason a “two thumbs up” for the quality of these cattle.
For the most part, our bulls are calving ease and low birth weight. They can be used on both heifer and cows. One of the great benefits of our genetics, is that only are the great for calving, but that calf will grow and develop into a great replacement heifer, bull or steer.
Yes, our bulls are docile, except for the occasional disagreement between themselves, they are very easy to handle. One of the benefits of the way we breed, raise and develop them. We are so confident that we even have a guarantee for our bulls.
We offer a Docility guarantee on all our bulls due to the faith we have in Lesikar Genetics and the development process our program uses. Having spent as much time with the bulls as we do, it is easy to identify the few that don't act right. We don't do crazy and don't expect you to either.
November the 15th is the beginning of our breeding season.
Each year we select a couple of loads to send to feedlots. The main reason for this is to get information back so we have a better understanding of our genetics and how they can benefit you. Getting an ADG of 3.54 and nothing but Prime or Choice is always a good problem to have.
Great question, at Athens it is Coastal Bermuda, in Poolville we have both Coastal and Tifton 85, and in Fort Worth and Llano we have Native Range.
