The Y.O. Ranch, a renowned property with a rich history, was acquired in 1880 by Captain Charles A. Schreiner, a man of many talents including banking, philanthropy, pioneering ranching, and serving as a Texas Ranger. He purchased the brand and cattle from Taylor & Clemens using the profits gained from driving an impressive 300,000 longhorns from Texas to Dodge City. Over six generations, the ranch achieved numerous historical feats, such as leasing land for hunting to expand its revenue streams, establishing the Texas Longhorn Breeders’ Association and a registry to revive the endangered breed, and introducing exotic hoof stock, which earned Y.O Ranch Headquarters the worldwide recognition as “America’s Original Game Ranch.”
