Combining Careers and Cattle

Third generation Angus producers Ron and Lynne Hinrichsen of Hinrichsen Ranch in Westmoreland, Kan., are the definitions of ‘Angus enthusiasts’. They knew early on they wanted to raise Angus cattle and started with five cows they bought before they were married.

Hinrichsen Ranch is focused on calving ease and carcass genetics with the commercial cattlemen in mind. Our seedstock operation is built on heavy use of AI and ET technology to rapidly advance the cowherd. We market our bulls through a cooperator sale and in partnership with a family that leases cows in western Kansas. Females are sold privately throughout the year. Our family also raises show heifers and steers for junior exhibitors to compete competitively on local, state, and national levels.

In addition, we believe in giving back by serving the Angus breed through multiple industry involvement opportunities. Ron has been involved in their state Angus association and served in many roles including President. Lynne has also been a member of the Kansas and American Angus Auxiliary and previously served as the President of the American Angus Auxiliary. Currently, she serves as the President of the Kansas Angus Association. Both served as Kansas Junior Angus advisors and were on the executive planning committee for the 2022 National Junior Angus Show.

The kids were very active in the Kansas and National Junior Angus Associations achieving success in the show ring as well through the educational contests. Eva was the 2020 Miss American Angus, Cale was the 2019 Angus Ambassador, and both received the Jim Baldridge Outstanding Leadership Awards and the Junior Herdsman of the Year Awards.

Our family continues to work hard producing cattle with the desired combination of phenotype and genetic potential desired by seedstock and commercial producers. We invite you to the ranch at any time to see our program!
