When the current owner started Southern Cattle Company, it was just going to be a hobby farm.  Today this well-respected operation and innovative leader in sustainable land use has blazed a trail others can only follow. The original 400 acres is now the sight of the recognizable red barn located off Highway 231 near Marianna, Florida. This 75,000 square foot building stands as the epicenter of one of the most successful and diverse agricultural properties offered for sale in the modern era of cattle breeding.  Throughout the property there are also a number of structures and improvements including a show barn, a donor barn and embryological transfer facility, 4 hay barns, various equipment barns and sheds, a boathouse, an estimated 150 miles of fencing, and nine houses for employees or for rental income.


Sale Barn


The Sale Barn includes a reception area and auditorium for cattle sales. This 60,000 square foot showcase includes stalls for corralling livestock for auction. This area houses the 13,000 square feet of offices and operations for this nationally recognized leader in the cattle industry.

Show Barn


The Show Barn abuts the main building for easy access. Built in 2002 with just under 16,000 square feet, it encompasses comfortable sleeping quarters for livestock buyers at auction time.

Donor Barn/Embryological Transfer Facility


Our donor barn/embryological transfer facility was built in 2002 at just under 16,000 square feet and contains the latest state-of-the-art ET equipment. This asset offers testament to the 25 years of top produced seed stock genetics specifically adapted to the southern conditions and for southern grasses. 

Hay Barns


Numerous  barns and strategically placed sheds including four 180' x 200' hay barns are spread throughout the Ranch. Built to serve the six working set-ups and working pens the structures and outbuildings are more like a planned community for those who call this operation "home".



Overlooking beautiful Waddell's  Mill Pond is the modern boathouse. Set up for storage and launching of canoes, kayaks, and fishing vessels, it includes a modern dock for relaxing and enjoyment of the view.



Included in this acquisition is equipment valued at $4.1 million  Everything needed to continue the highest level of operating this state-of-the-art facility is readily at hand for the personnel who live and work here.  An extensive list is available separately upon request.
