The Petteway family has raised citrus and cattle in south central Florida for many generations.  We have several businesses that operate from our headquarters in Zolfo Springs, Florida, including citrus grove caretaking, citrus tree removal and a certified citrus nursery.  We live on the “home place” which consists of citrus groves and our registered Angus cattle.  Our commercial herd is at our satellite ranch 10 miles from our home.  Our focus turned to registered Angus when we needed bulls with the genetics that would work in our southern environment.  Having purchased bulls from out of state, we found that they couldn't stand up to our environment and just melted.  We purchased Angus cattle that proved they could work here and further bred our heifers to be able to stand the heat.  Our program is forage based, and our cattle must work for us, not us work for them. 

We have shown Angus cattle for the past 10 years, to great success.  Our heifers and bulls have done consistently well in the show ring, and have gone on to be great cattle in the herd afterwards, with some of our early show heifers and bulls producing several champions themselves. As a matter of fact, a month after winning Reserve Grand Champion Bull at the Florida State Fair, that bull was sold to a commercial cattleman for his herd.  And he's still performing for him.  We show cattle, but we also expect them to work on the ranch afterwards.  Our operation also sells club calves to 4-H and FFA students for their livestock projects.  We have had several class champions and a few grand and reserve champions come from our stock.

Our cattle are productive, efficient and able to withstand the harsh environment that we live in.  Local cattlemen respect our bulls because of this.  We invite your inspection of our cattle operation and hope to see you soon.
