Smith Bonsmara is the innovation of Mike Smith, a third generation cattle rancher. Family pride runs deep for the Smith Family, who were part of the third official Oklahoma land rush of 1892. Mike’s father, Bob Smith, took over the Smith Homestead in 1965 and grew the claim to 5,000 acres across the Oklahoma prairie. The ranching lifestyle has been a part of Mike’s daily life since before he could remember. Bob Smith Farms consists of a 300 Cow/Calf operation crossing Bonsmara and Angus genetics. However, Mike’s true passion is his own ranchland and herd of Bonsmara cattle.
Before committing to ranch life as a full time profession, Mike was a lawyer in Amarillo, where he represented clients like Cactus Feeders, Texas Cattle Feeders Association and other feedyards. Through these connections, he learned of the Bonsmara breed. In 2005 he purchased 18 head of half-blood Bonsmara females due to calve full-blood Bonsmara embryos. The first Smith Bonsmara calf crop of 2006, yielded 12 full-blood Bonsmara females and two bulls, worthy of serving as the foundation for a new herd. After more than 10 years of retaining heifers, obtaining embryos and culling females, Smith Bonsmara boasts a herd of 70 exceptionally quality females that serve as the pureblood foundation herd.
Now able to devote his time to his true passion in life, the American beef business, Mike works to spread awareness of an innovative breed with the potential to change the way we enjoy our beef. Mike with the aid of his two daughters Shea and Sarah formed Smith Bonsmara LLC, an organization devoted to advancing the awareness, genetics, and Bonsmara breed in the United States.
ABOUT THIS DESIGN
The Smith Bonsmara website features a great design that pairs perfectly with the red hided Bonsmara cattle. The design colors of deep burgundy, gold, and white make a very professional website that is crisp and easy to navigate. Additionally, since the website is 100% mobile responsive, it looks great on a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop. Each website we design at Ranch House is mobile responsive, search engine friendly, and custom designed to fit each client’s needs. Mike made his initial connection with Ranch House after we were featured on The American Rancher television program, and we have enjoyed working with him on this exciting business.
