A passion for agriculture runs deep at Camblin Livestock. The fourth generation to operate on the ranch in the high desert valley in northwest Colorado near Maybell. A family operation consisting of Mike, Danna, Chelsee, Call, and Mackenzie Camblin. We run a predominantly black Angus herd registered and commercial with an influence of Simmental. In 2017 we stepped into the seed stock and have began developing bulls, and replacement females.
The land we operate on has been in Danna’s family for over 100 years. In 1917 RH McIntyre a carpenter by trade traveled from Denver to settle on a homestead in Moffat county. This homestead is the beginning of the McIntyre Ranch. In 1933 RH married May Steele, they had four sons Dick, John, Sam, and Marvin. They moved to Maybell in 1937. Property between the homestead and ranch headquarters has been acquired over the years to develop the ranch. Hereford cattle paved the way in the beginning. They were marketed as yearlings and shipped out by railroad.
Sam and Georgia bought the ranch from his parents in 1968. They raised their family of five children Sandy, Chad, Zander, Danna, and Chip on the ranch. Commercial cow calf and yearling operations has been the backbone. Implementing many conservation strategies to improve the land with cross fencing, rotational grazing, and livestock water systems.
Today our vision is to be good stewards of the land, water, and wildlife resources by maintaining and improving health and performance. We are looking forward to our future in the cattle business.
