My name is Douglas Dale. I am a third generation cattleman and have been in the cattle business my whole life. I have managed Rocking T Bar Ranch for over 15 years. Having been an avid team roper for over 25 years, I began to appreciate the durability of Corriente Cattle many years ago. My wife, Patty, and I began buying purebred Corriente cattle from NACA breeders in 2002 for practice cattle but began to produce ropings in 2003. We started buying a select group of heifers from reputable breeders as well as steers for our ropings. We only kept the heifers that roped the best for the longest to start our cow herd. Our herd sires were selected with an emphasis on their ability to last in the roping pen as well as conformation and bloodlines. We didn’t invent the wheel but we did follow the advice of many proven breeders that have been raising elite Corriente Cattle for decades.
The ranch is located in South Mississippi about 35 miles from the Gulf Coast. We are 2.6 miles west of I-59 at McNeill Exit 15 and ½ mile north. Visitors always welcome.
