Agricultural Tour Groups

Yolo Land & Cattle Co.

ranch entrance signAt Yolo Land & Cattle Co., we have invested considerable time and energy to improve the rangeland ecosystem at our ranch headquarters, and we love sharing our story with visitors. Since 1996, we have welcomed agricultural tour groups, students, and dignitaries from all over the world.

tour group peopleWe typically host pre-scheduled bus groups of 30 or more people. Buses can drive across our ranch, or we can provide hay rides for a more hands-on experience. We also welcome visitors who arrive in other modes of transportation.

antique carsWeather is a consideration and our tour season normally runs from March through October. In the event of rain, we can accommodate up to 40 people inside our headquarters, and we’ll provide a slide show presentation of a simulated tour.

gate openingOn the tour, guests will learn about modern beef cattle production, riparian habitat and rangeland restoration, and our on-going efforts to increase wildlife populations. The average tour length is about one hour, depending on the interests of the group.

buffet style barbecusAfter the tour, we proudly serve an authentic buffet-style western steak barbecue with all of the trimmings. Cows and horses grazing in the background provide a picturesque setting for this memorable feast. After the meal, guests can relax under the quiet shade of our mulberry trees, play horseshoes, cowboy croquet, or shop for ranch products at our mini general store.

roping from horsebackOne of the common tasks performed on horseback is the time-honored art of roping. Often, cattle must be lassoed or roped in the field so cowboys can give medication. Young calves are also roped to be marked and vaccinated. Roping demonstrations may be given by one of our cowboys or family members, and folks will have a chance to practice their skills on roping dummies.
