quality Aberdeen Angus feeder and stocker calves have been raised
on the Steve Trigg Ranch since 1918 when the Triggs brought the
first herd of black cattle to New Mexico from Texas. This 50,000

of San Miguel County, 32 miles NNW of Tucumcari, NM. It is operated
by Trigg Cattle Company. Kristen Holmes is the ranch manager with
her husband Richard.

was a pleasure to meet a ranching family with so many positive things
going for them. With people and financial issues well under control,
Rick and Kristen are well-poised to begin working on the ecological
