Welcome to Jackson Hereford Ranch!
  The Jackson Family Ranching Heritage goes as far back as 1748 in Virginia, where Thomas Jackson, Sr. was listed on the census as a farmer and stockman.

Thomas’ son, Thomas Jackson, Jr. moved to Caswell County, North Carolina where he was a farmer and stockman. Jeremiah Jackson (son of Thomas Jr.) moved to Bates County, Missouri. He then moved to Dallas County, Texas, near the present city of Oak Cliff, where he farmed and ranched. When Jeremiah’s son, James William Jackson, passed away at the age of 38, his son, Jerry Robert Jackson stayed in Dallas County until 1892. He then moved to southeast Stephens County and bought 160 acres, previously owned by B.F. Jackson. Jerry Robert was a fifth generation farmer and stockman.

By the time of Jerry Robert’s death, he had increased the ranch to 1,200 acres. He had five children that eventually split the property and his son, Robert Jackson inherited the original 160 acres. The original 160 acres is known as the Creek Pasture and is still a part of our ranch today.

Robert and his only child, Joe Lynch Jackson, worked together to grow the ranch to approximately 3,500 acres in 1974. Hereford cattle have been on the ranch since the 1920s.

The present ranch is operated by Robert Joe & Dena Jackson, Smokey & Shirley (Jackson) Eppler, Tye & Shelley Jackson with daughter Shelby Lipps, Shelby Williams Jackson with daughter Addalyn. Addalyn is the sixth generation of Jacksons on the ranch since 1892.

Jackson Hereford Ranch now consists of 8,200 acres. Much of the cultivated land is used for growing hay, wheat and wildlife plots. Part of the operation is managed for deer, dove, turkey and feral hog hunting. We raise purebred Hereford and commercial crosses, using Angus bulls, for replacement black baldy heifers to sell.
