Our operation is primarily a cow/calf farm with over 700 acres of hills and hollers in southern Pike County.

We raise Simmental and crossbred cattle, along with a few Corrientes. Our horses are primarily AQHA registered Quarter Horses, that we use on the farm for work and play.

We invite you to check the references on our horses. We can supply you with contact info for veterinarians, farriers, trainers, past owners, etc. Visit,, and to research our horses.

We were honored to have a great article written on Bee Creek Ranch by the Quincy Herald Whig.

We select our horses for their athletic ability, cow tracking ability, disposition, soundness, and versatility. We compete locally in team penning and team sorting and have found our horses are well suited for these sports. Our sons, Cody and Evan, show our horses in 4-H and fun shows.
