Shane is a partner and Assistant General Manager of Crawford Cattle LLC. He was born and raised in Winnemucca Nevada and graduated from BYU-Idaho with a Bachelors degree in Animal Science in 2010. He and his wife Heather have been married for 12 years and have four children: Adel, Quincy, June, and Nora.
Crawford Cattle has been in operation since 1999 and started with Shane’s father Steve, a handful of cows and some temporary fencing. Today the ranch operates 5 units in 3 northern Nevada counties on an area the size of Delaware. The ranch’s three crown jewels are the tremendous people that make up the Crawford Cattle family, the expansive land they’ve been blessed to be stewards over, and the hardy cattle that make the western lifestyle possible.
Shane is relentlessly progressive and totally focused on improving the ranching operation through responsible rangeland stewardship, thoughtful cattle husbandry, economic diversification, and marketing the best dang calves in the country year in and year out.
