Lanting Enterprises LLC is a family partnership owned and operatedby three brothers: Jim, John and Bob Lanting. We are located in South Central Idaho approximately 20 miles south of Twin Falls and 20 miles north of Jackpot, Nevada.

Our cattle graze on high mountain desert pasture developed to adjust to an average rain fall of approximately 9 inches of rain. Cattle survive on thousands of acres with minimal resources. Cattle graze out 6-7 months and are brought in, in the fall to graze off residue feed from irrigated fields of alfalfa, malt barley, wheat and corn.

Cows must produce and breed back to stay in the herd. Cattle raised in this environment are rugged and strong footed. We raise our registered Simmental and SimAngus cows in the same environment as commercial cows.  Calves are born in February – April.

Calves are weaned in September-October with moderate weaning weights, 550-700 pounds, depending on the available feed. They are then placed on a growing ration with only corn silage and alfalfa hay. Adequate body condition lets these bulls go straight to work.

Bulls and heifers are closely selected for growth, conformation, disposition, carcass quality, maternal traits and sound feet and legs. We are especially proud that we rank above the American Simmental Associations National average in calving ease, weaning weight, milk, marbling, API and TI.  

Private treaty of bulls begins in December. Bulls are fed free until April 15th with a $3.00 a day charge after that date. Bulls are fertility tested by March 15th unless needed earlier. All necessary tests will be done to facilitate the travel to different locations. Payment is decided as each agreement is made.  

We have developed a demand for selecting sight unseen bulls, however, I would rather you select your own.  We look forward to seeing you at the ranch to see what we have to offer.


Thank you,

Jim, John and Bob Lanting
