Fire Ridge Ranch is owned and operated by the Meredith family located 12 miles south of Melstone Montana, nestled on the edge of the Bull Mountains. It was founded by Wayne and Rosella Meredith in 1989 and now is home to two more generations of Merediths. Neil Meredith was raised on the ranch and since joined into the operation along with his wife Ramie in 2010. Last but not least are the future of the ranch, Neil and Ramie's three children (grandpa's little helpers) who will hopefully keep the family tradition going if they choose. Our goal is to produce top quality natural cattle in an open range style of operation.
The bull selection maximizes the profitability and flexibility of our operation. Our selection of top quality Red Angus and Charolais Bulls has created a great result with our herd. Selection of top Red Angus cows matched with our line of Red Angus bulls maintains a top of the line replacement heifer program. The cross-breeding program with the use of our high quality Charolais bulls with our Red Angus cows produces the maximum weight gaining calf crop. These calves grow fast with little input that produces top dollar for our feedlot buyers.
