Who Is Might As Well Ranch?
The Might As Well Ranch gets its name from the well thought out plan that started this venture. We decided that we would buy a couple of calves for the boys. It would be good for them to learn some responsibility and may be a way for them to make a little money selling calves. We already had some land that was being used for hay. So we find out about a couple of Texas Longhorn heifers for sale by way of Doctor John Stoltz (vet and brother). We bring home two six-month old calves but do not really have fence prepared so they spend a few months at grandpa’s until the fence is ready. Notice I say ready not finished because I am not familiar with a finished fence.
Here is where the Might As Well comes in. If you have to build fence, buy supplies and take care of two of them, might as well get a few more. The name also can be used as a way of saying the economy stinks, can’t make any money doing anything else either, so we might as well ranch. We would not have named the place at all, but when filling out the paperwork to get the first few cattle registered the form asked for a ranch name.
