Our herd consists of a large cow-calf operation on over 600 acres of farm land in Conway, Arkansas. We feed our herd our own hay 90-120 days, depending on the weather between the months of November and February. Other times our herd grazes on a mixture of grass, mainly native and hybrid Bermuda. We implement rotational grazing when the season permits. To optimize our herd performance and provide any necessary nutritional supplement, we provide Free Choice mineral troughs with seasonal required minerals. Our regular health program is provided by Dr. Cy Shurtleff, DVM of Morrilton. We have documentation through Dr. Shurtleff of the vaccination program, and we keep detailed documentation of our herd and their progress at all times.

Ryan Bundy twice referenced the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. during his closing argument Wednesday, and he told jurors to “stand for freedom” and find him not guilty.

  • Did These Climate Change Campaigners Miss the Point? October 21, 2016
    Voters in Washington state will be asked next month whether they want to adopt the nation’s first carbon tax — a powerful way to curb greenhouse-gas emissions. You’d think environmental groups would be doing everything they can to back that idea. You’d be wrong.

 

About Edit


The Flying C Ranch is located in central Faulkner County, Arkansas approximately 8 miles east of Conway. In 1980, Dr. Robert Clark started with just 16 head of cattle as a hobby. The herd has since developed into a large cow-calf operation on over 600 acres of farm land in Conway, Arkansas. We strive to provide the best meat quality by focusing on forage management year round. We raise a variety of hay, ranging from native Bermuda grass to Tipton 44 hybrid Bermuda grass to midland hybrid Bermuda grass. We feed our herd hay 90-120 days, depending on the weather between the months of November and February. Other times our herd grazes on a mixture of grass, mainly native and hybrid Bermuda. We implement rotational grazing when the season permits. To optimize our herd performance and provide any necessary nutritional supplement, we provide Free Choice mineral troughs with seasonal required minerals. Our regular health program is provided by Dr. Cy Shurtleff, DVM of Morrilton. We have documentation through Dr. Shurtleff of the vaccination program, and we keep detailed documentation of our herd and their progress at all times.

We run approximately 150 mama cows that are cross-bred Poll Hereford, Angus, Braunvieh, Charolais and Santa Gertrudis. We have six registered bulls, 2 Horned Herefords, 1 Black Angus, 2 Red Angus, and 1 Simmental. In the past, we have taken each year’s calf crop weanlings and sent them to a feed lot in Kansas.  In 2012, we wanted to start something new. We decided to market our cattle and decrease the cost of transporting the cattle to feed lots by selling them locally at our farm. We started this process by retaining our heifers from 2011 to sell as replacement heifers to potential buyers. Since beginning our program, we have raised our own replacement heifers and do not purchase cattle.
