Dan and Farris Wilks learned the importance of hard work from their father. They knew the value of vision and persistence, and of building a firm foundation for their future. Starting in the cattle business in their Cisco, Texas, home, they expanded a small family farm and a few head of black angus cattle to the immense holdings Wilks Ranches employs today.
Seeking to improve their commercial ranches, the brothers established a registered seed stock operation in 2013. They provide bulls and cows for commercial and seed stock cattlemen, and realized they could do a great deal to improve genetics and strengthen Black Angus herds throughout the country.
