How We Got Here

Ray and Kelly were both raised in the ranching and agriculture industry. At eighteen Ray joined the Marine Corps taking them on journeys around the country for over 20 years.  In all our years away our hearts longed to be home, closer to family and be able to ranch again. Upon retirement we moved back to our beloved Montana. One day Kelly saw a miniature Highland bull and fell in love. Ray being the amazing husband he is, bought Kelly 2 little cows. That was just the beginning of what is now Xbar6 Miniature Cattle.

Our Core Values

Placing God, family, stewardship of animals, and giving to others at the forefront of our lives shapes our priorities. By valuing these aspects, we cultivate a sense of purpose, connection, and compassion that enriches our existence.

  • Integrity
  • Authenticity
  • Compassion

The name of our ranch, rooted in the livestock brand given to Ray by his great uncle when he was a teenager, reflects a deep connection to our family history. This homage to the past carries a sense of tradition and heritage, tying our present endeavors to the legacy of those who came before. Such a meaningful name adds layers of significance and personal history to our ranch, creating a bridge between generations and honoring the roots from which our journey began.
