About Us
H Lazy P Cattle Company is a cow-calf operation in Northwestern Colorado, near Hayden. H Lazy P Cattle Company's home ranch spreads around 480 acres of pasture. It consists of hay meadows with senior water rights that are irrigated and harvested for winter feed. The meadows are also used for fall and winter pasture.

All of our first calf heifers, and most of our mature cows, are wintered and calved out on the ranch. There are 80+ acres, below the meadows, that are filled with Cottonwood trees. The trees make a great place for the mature herd to calve and offers some protection from the weather. The first calf heifers are kept close to the barn and brought up to the main corrals every night to be monitored.

On site, we have a full set of working corrals and shipping facilities for cattle management. We hold several leases on land around the area to expand and accommodate the herd when needed. In the summer months we spread out the herd according to water, terrain and pasture size.

H Lazy P Cattle Company runs a commercial cattle herd consisting of black Angus and Simmental cross cows, or black Angus and Hereford cross cows (also known as Black Baldy's). We have chosen these breeds for many reasons; the Angus cattle, more so the black Angus, are known for their high carcass yield with excellent marbling. They are also resistant to harsh weather, early to mature, and have good fertility. They are a very market friendly breed that crosses well with both the Simmental and the Hereford breeds. The Simmental's are an adaptable breed allowing them to thrive in different climates and weather conditions, making them a good breed for our cold winters and hot summers. They have high productivity, and are known for their good milking and quality meat yield. The Herefords are widely known for their excellent mothering, good milking and overall docile nature. They are a weather resistant breed, easy to maintain and have great productivity and longevity. The cross of these breeds increases the growth and determination of our calves.


The quality, good natured and mature heifer calves are kept every year. We breed them to bulls that are known for calving ease, allowing most the heifers to calve naturally. By keeping heifers from our mature cows, we see how our herd is producing. We have generations of mothers now that are producing quality and uniform calves.
