Cattle that are

Jornada Del Muerto


The Brown Family welcomes you to the Fite Ranch. We are a working family commercial Beefmaster cattle operation in the northern reaches of the Jornada del Muerto desert in central New Mexico. Whether it is to find high quality Beefmaster bred cattle that are able to produce in the roughest of climates, hunting, hiking, or enjoying the scenic Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, we welcome your visit!
Our History

Beefmaster & E6 Cattle

Beefmaster cattle are the ideal breed to sustainably produce a high quality food source in harsh climates. While adhering to the Six Essentials including Fertility, Weight, Conformation, Milk Production, Hardiness, and Disposition, we have produced a cow herd that excels in producing high quality calves in our harsh desert environment. Our goal is to provide top quality producing Beefmaster cattle to commercial ranches looking for the added benefits of hybrid vigor that Beefmasters provide.
