CROWN POINT, IND.– Linz Heritage Angus announced on Dec. 29 that it purchased Cross B Ranch in Byars, Okla.

The meat purveyor plans to set up the property as a fully working ranch under the new name of Linz Heritage Angus at Blue Branch Ranch. The facility sits on approximately 5,041 acres and can support up to 800 mother cows. 

“The demand for quality beef is higher than ever before,” said Fred Linz, Linz Heritage Angus and Meats by Linz owner and chief executive officer. “In addition to helping us meet the needs of our partners, Linz Heritage Angus at Blue Branch Ranch will drive the program to the next level. As the gold standard in high-end Angus beef, our goal is to continually advance to unprecedented areas in the industry and provide a herd of Black Angus sires and donors that rank the best in the world.”

The company said the ranch addition will help support its affiliate company, Meats by Linz. The program will maintain its Crown Point, Ind., ranch as a genetics facility and waitstaff training center for their restaurant partners.

The southern Oklahoma ranch includes a fenced equipment yard, covered storage, barns, equipment storage, indoor working facility and a foreman’s home.
