New Website: Southlex Cattle

Rachel CutrerWebsite Design Features


Southlex Cattle is the brand to know and the company to trust. As a 6th generation cattle producer, Margaret Ann Smith had one dream upon graduation from Kansas State University – and she’s accomplishing it. After returning to the family farm – Lexington, Viriginia – in 2003, her determination accelerated her to create Southlex Cattle Company and maintain the business for 10 years. As the sixth generation to operate a business in the cattle industry, Margaret Ann will continue to evolve Southlex Cattle Company.

Serving as a 4-H leader, in her community, Margaret Ann is able to work with youth to help them achieve their goals. Currently, she is a member of the Kansas Livestock Association, Virginia Cattlemen’s Association and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA). She is active in Farm Bureau and recently served a two year appointment on the American Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee, as well as serving for five years on the Virginia Farm Bureau Young Farmer Committee. Margaret Ann also served on the Lexington/Rockbridge Chamber of Commerce board of directors and was the 2013 and 2014 Vice Chair of NCBA Livestock Marketing Council Young Cattlemen’s Conference.

Today, Margaret Ann focuses her efforts with a few key organizations: NCBA Young Producers Council and Five Nationals Beef Alliance Young Beef Leader.


Since Margaret Ann is a huge fan of Kansas State University – of course we wanted to integrate purple into the design. She also chose a bold and progressive design, that had some eye appeal and “flash” to it. Margaret Ann also chose great writing by having several really cool pages, like “This is Me” where she shares her story, background and vision for success at Southlex.


It’s not a suprise that many purebred or registered cattle breeders utilize a website in their marketing program. However, feeder cattle producers and stocker cattle operators also can reap the benefits of having a great online presence. Having a website – especially a mobile friendly one – allows prospective clients to contact you and learn more about your operation. It builds a great relationship with others in the beef industry before they may even meet you in person. All of our websites for stocker / feeder operations are mobile responsive, custom designed, and search engine friendly. If you are a stocker or feeder operator and have been thinking of getting a website to promote your business, we would love to talk to you. We guarantee you will be pleased with the customer service and great design talents of Ranch House. You an get started by filling out our free price quote form today.
