During the mid 20th century, P. Pewitt puchased many small tracts of land between the Sulphur River and White Oak Creek to create the Pewitt Ranch. The Ranch was then purchased by Donaldson Brown, of Baltimore, Maryland, during the early 1960’s and renamed Broseco Ranch an acronym for Brown Security Company. The original ranch encompassed more that 40,000 acres as over the years additional small tracts were added.
The primary focus of the ranch has been commercial cattle production. Since the beginning the cattle have been a cross of several breeds. Hereford and Angus were used in the early years and since the early 1980’s the ranch has employed a systematic crossbreeding system to produce animals that will perform well in all segments of the industry.
The ranch has extended its involvement from the cow/calf enterprise to the stocker, feeding and final product segments of the industry. Producing the finest beef products for our customer, the consumer, is part of our vision for the ranch.
Broseco has been recognized as the commercial producer of the year by the Beef Improvement Federation, a prestigious national organization. A multiple and consistent award winning breeding and beef producing, the ranch has also been recognized by a number of other organizations as a leading producer and operator of the beef sector.
Wildlife and timber resources have played a significant role for Broseco for many years. Strategic plans have been developed for wildlife and habitat for wildlife. These areas are under intense management to provide the habitat necessary to provide nutrition and cover for deer, waterfowl, turkey and other wildlife.
Broseco has two one hundred acre lakes and numerous smaller lakes and ponds that are managed for bass production. We employ a wildlife biologist to manage our hunting and fishing so that we maintain a growing stock of trophy whitetail, doves, ducks, bass, and other wildlife.
