The Fatted Calf Board of Directors

The annual face to face board meeting in Magdalena was held the 20th of November. The board members from afar travelled to meet those of us here in Magdalena to review the past year, elect new officers and discuss long-range planning. They also toured at the ranch headquarters to see some of the cattle, saw the meat plant in operation and ate at Carnisimo Burgers. We are thankful for their guidance, expertise and support.

RAV: October 2018 Update

During the month of October, temperatures have finally begun to drop a bit. After a ride up at the big ranch, Rancho Ojo de Agua, we are happy to report healthy cows, calves, and bulls all around!

Down at Rancho Agua Viva headquarters, we had a few days of high water in the river due to lots of rains in the surrounding mountains. We praise God for his protection as the only thing lost is a bit of fence!
