Welcome to Rocking A Ranch

Rocking A Ranch is owned by Allen and Cheryll Grainger, and their daughters, Allison and Lauren. The ranch continues a rich tradition of ranching excellence on the Mayfair Ranch in Central Texas. Over time, their herd has grown to include 150 purebred Santa Gertrudis and 100 Santa Gertrudis Star Five Brazos Composite, a breed consisting of ½ Santa Gertrudis and ¼ each of Hereford and Gelbvieh, females.

In addition to raising great cattle, Allen and Cheryll, along with their daughters, remain very active in Santa Gertrudis Breeders International, as both previously served on the SGBI Board of Directors. Allen is a former chairman of the National Santa Gertrudis Youth Foundation and currently serves as chairman of the Santa Gertrudis Foundation. Cheryll has served on the Mid-Coast Santa Gertrudis board, and is a past President. Allen is also on the board of Mid-Coast, and is currently serving as President.

Both Allison and Lauren are past directors of The National Junior Santa Gertrudis Association.

Rocking A is committed to breeding top-tier cattle that are performance-driven, and their selection fits the needs of purebred and commercial breeders alike.
