Ranch Survives & Endures the 1000 year Flood!
We are happy to report that the critical areas of the ranch were unaffected by the
floods. We've been an island for a few days and had to drive through 3.5 feet of water to the street. Left one truck in and
one truck out. Walked ditch bank to get out - went to work as scheduled. Cows are just fine too. They wade in the irrigation
ditches to cool off all Summer long, so there were just more places to "wade" lately. Raised our flag to signal
"all's well" on Monday night. Lots of helicoptor and small aircraft over head. Our thoughts and prayers go out to
all others whom did not fare so well.

The DD Ranch
We are very proud
to breed the finest Galloway Cattle
we can provide todays cattle industry.
Galloway function very well on grass
and are a very efficient fed beef product. With today's feed costs spiraling out of control, the budget needs to "pencil."
We utilize "Bovigen Technology"
to identify Feed Efficiency. Our herd bulls have All 8 Stars for Feed
Efficiency. We also test for Marbling/Quality & Tenderness. These are tools to help you know more precisely
what you are adding to your herd besides Strong Conformation.
Galloway cattle are
"Back to Basics" in Moderate Mature Cattle size. Our percentage Lowline cattle are the avenue many breeders will
want and need to make a dramatic change in the over all frame size of a commercial herd in one breeding season.
