The Borror family has been the sole owners and operators of Tehama Angus for over 75 years with four generations taking part. The family takes pride in developing and raising purebred Angus genetics that will guide commercial producers for many years to come. Their philosophy does not follow industry fads, just simply builds a program around solid black Angus cattle.
Gerber, California remains the ranch headquarters where all cows are bred and where bulls are developed. Headquarters is also home to spring calving cows where they are summered on irrigated pastures with calves at their side.
Spring calving cows are sent to the foothills November through April. This commercial environment is made up of seasonal grasses, valley oaks, and lava rock. Calves are born healthier, and with more vigor, on outside native grasses.
The fall calving cowherd has expanded to Adin, California in the northeastern portion of the state. Cows are on open range ground comprised of high desert from April through August where they are then brought down to calve on irrigated pasture. Cows and calves both thrive in this commercial environment when temperatures reach above 100 degrees in the valley during summer months.
The history of Tehama Angus Ranch is steeped in a rich heritage of people and cattle.
