WK Ranch is a family owned operation that is located in the high desert plains of Northeastern New Mexico. Mark, Darla, Haley Jo, Kaley May, J.D., and J.T. King call Trementina, New Mexico home and is the headquarters for the ranch. We specialize in raising registered Charolais cattle that are hearty and efficient in the arid dry desert lands where it is rocky, brushy, and most of the times, dry. Our herd sire emphasizes the traits that we are raising in our bulls. BJR Sir Silver 544P is at the top of the breed with his weaning and yearling EPDs. He has a birth weight EPD of -.4, but yet a weaning weight of 863 pounds and a yearling weight of 1300 pounds. Calves are born small, yet gain weight rapidly by the time they are weaned. This is our fourth year participating in the Tucumcari bull test. Our bulls have performed very well and BJR Sir Silver 544P's exceptional traits have been shown through each year with every set of bulls. This year, the bulls are performing extremely well with exceptional ADGs and WDAs, keeping them at the top. At the Top of The Valle test in the summer of 2011 we are very proud to say that we had the high indexing other breed bull, Charolais, as well as the high indexing Angus bull.

We would like to invite everyone out to the Tucumcari Bull Test Sale on March 16th. Come in early on the evening of March 15th and join us for the social and dinner. Thank you for taking your time to learn about our operation and looking at our bulls. Visitors are always welcome at our place; we do not get too many out here!
