44 Cattle Company is owned and operated by Bill and Dolores Jenkins. We are located 17 miles north of Big Spring, Texas on Hwy. 669. 44 CATTLE CO. was established in 1959 by Dolores’s Dad, Aubrey Lankford.
From 1959 to 1999 Aubrey ran 50 head of commercial cattle. In 1999 Bill and Dolores added 10 head of Maine Anjou and 3 head of registered Shorthorns. Between 1999 and 2005 the registered Shorthorns increased to 20 head. After the death of Aubrey in 2005 Bill and Dolores took over operation of the ranch. By 2007 the herd was primarily registered Shorthorns. In 2009 registered Miniature Herefords were added to the operation. At this time the ranch consists of 30 head of Shorthorns and 25 Miniature Herefords.
Bill and Dolores have 3 children, Amanda Blissard, Raymond Jenkins and Michael Jenkins, and 4 grand children, Myka Blissard, Aubree Blissard, Whittany Jenkins and Mason Jenkins. Raising and showing cattle has been a big part of this family’s life for the past 55 years. At the present time Myka and Aubree Blissard are both showing in junior heifer and steer shows, and Bill, Dolores, Amanda, and Aubree are showing in open Miniature Hereford shows.
