A cattle ranch that was once home to some of the country’s most celebrated and wealthy cattle ranchers and their families is going to become a large-scale, multimillion-dollar operation that is going up in flames.
Zachary Farm, which is located on the Ozark Plains near Fair Oaks Farm, was purchased by a group of ranchers led by Zachary Farms CEO and founder Zachary Owens.
Owens, who is the son of Zachary F. Owens and grandson of Zacharias, owns and operates a vast array of ranching and cattle breeding properties across the Midwest.
His family is one of the largest cattle herders in the United States, and he has a large, family-owned herd of over 12,000 cows.
Zacharie Farms has long been one of Arkansas’ largest farms, but Owens is planning to make it a major expansion project.
The cattle ranch is a large ranching operation, and its future has long hung in the balance, according to Owens, whose family owns and manages the land and has been involved in cattle farming for more than 40 years.
A group of local farmers and ranchers has started a grassroots campaign to stop the planned expansion of the cattle ranch.
The land that will be sold to Owens is owned by the Fair Oaks and Ozark County governments, and it has not been used since 2007.
Owens has told the media that the new owners will have to lease the land to him and his family, but his family’s attorney has said that the agreement with Owens will only allow the property to be used by him and family for the next five years.
Owens told the Associated Press in an email that the plan was “to build a large cattle ranch for the benefit of the local farmers.
That’s the bottom line.”
The cattle, known as the Owens Family, has been in business for over a century, and Owens has cultivated the land on the farm for decades.
“The Owens Family has long enjoyed the property for its high quality of cattle and its reputation as a leader in the Arkansas-based, state-supported livestock industry,” Owens said in the email.
“It is important to our farmers that we remain committed to them and to their communities and that we maintain the land as it is.”
In response to the news of the proposed cattle ranch, Fair Oaks, which has operated as a livestock ranch for over 100 years, released a statement on Monday saying, “We are extremely disappointed with the news that we are about to lose our very important, and much loved, property.
The Owens Family is committed to providing an environment that is as comfortable for their animals as possible.”
In a statement to Arkansas Monthly, the Arkansas Department of Agriculture said that it had been in contact with Owens and the farm owner and is in “close contact with the local landowners to help facilitate their transition to a new, larger operation.”
“While we cannot provide further information at this time, the current owners of the property have indicated that they are in the process of selling their property,” the department said in a statement.
“We will continue to work with the owners to assist with the transition to the new operation.”
The current owners have yet to make any public announcements about the potential sale of their property, but in an interview with the AP last week, Owens said that he would be willing to make a donation to the Fair Children’s Home, which would go toward buying up the land that is being sold.
He said he is not concerned about the loss of the Owens farm.
“They’re going to do everything they can to continue to be there,” he said.
Owens’ family is well-known in Arkansas, with cattle ranches ranging from one to three thousand heads of cattle, and a family of six.
In 2009, Owens’ grandfather was the recipient of the Governor’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the state, and in the years that followed, Owens has also been recognized for his efforts on behalf of Arkansas and other state and local government.
“I have no doubt the Owens family is committed and will continue their commitment to our state and the region,” Owens told Arkansas Monthly in an April 2016 interview.
“And we’re very appreciative of all the support that has come from the people of Arkansas.
We appreciate the people who have taken an interest in our family and our business.”
The state of Arkansas is considering allowing cattle ranchers to keep some of their land for breeding, and has allowed the purchase of land for grazing in the past.
However, the state of Kentucky has already banned the practice, with a recent bill signed into law requiring that the state be the owner of land once a year and not the purchaser.
