About Me

I'm Debbie Lyons-Blythe. I am a cattle rancher in central Kansas, in the heart of the Flint Hills. My husband and I both grew up raising cattle. It is an excellent way of life, not just a job!

We have been married for more than 22 years, and have five kids: Meghan, a college junior, age 20; Allie, a college freshman, age 18; Trent, a high school senior, age 17; and Tyler and Eric are sophomores in high school, age 15 (yes, they are twins!).

We have about 250 mama cows raising calves, and 300 heifers (cows that haven't had a calf yet). We sell bulls and heifers and sometimes feed out our steers to enter the food chain. But usually our product is the genetics that other ranchers use to produce beef.

My job is to raise the cattle and kids. My husband works in town and helps on the ranch in the evenings and weekends. We love our ranch in Kansas. It is a beautiful place to raise cattle and a family.

I post to this blog weekly to share with people around the world what life is like in rural Kansas and how my family works every day to ensure a safe, nutritious supply of beef to consumers.

Let's talk!
