Flying JRL Ranch
Flying JRL Ranch is located in east central Minnesota near the small town of Finlayson. About 90 miles north of the Twin Cities and 15 minutes west of I-35. Ryan, Jamie, daughter Samantha and son Jacob, own and operate this small, family run ranching operation. It includes both registered seed stock cattle and a handful of well bred AQHA registered quarter horses. We have been raising purebred Charolais cattle since 2002 after growing up in the dairy business. We purchased our first 6 females and have been hooked ever since, They are not only beautiful animals but have proven to be great mothers with very manageable dispositions. They are also very functional cattle with great gains and desirable carcass traits.
It has been our focus to breed quality animals and improve on the breed standards in both our horses and our cattle. Whether for show or providing replacement heifers or herd sire breeding bulls for commercial or purebred cattlemen alike. Or breeding our horses for sound minds, versatility and longevity. Keeping up with current popular bloodlines and having some good breed traits is important but more important to us is raising sound, functional, proven stock that will be productive and easy to manage over a long lifetime. We are tremendously blessed to be able to do what we are doing. And are thankful to God and all of great families that we have had the privilege of getting to know over the years.
We calve in the spring beginning usually in January. It starts with a great set of females and we are continually striving to achieve better, more productive female lines. Flying JRL Ranch also owns 2010 National Champion Charolais Bull WDZ Northern Wind 8022 who is standing as our main herd sire. Also on our herd sire battery is 2014 National Calf Champion Country Pride and our outstanding Canadian bred, red charolais bull SRK Connected 410Z. We would love to have the opportunity to show you our herd and our ranch. Visitors are always welcome. Call us or drop us a line and give us a chance to help you in all of you stock needs.
Thank you for visiting and God Bless! Ryan, Jamie, Samantha and Jacob Gerlach
