COMPLETE HERD LIQUIDATION!
With a sadden heart, we are liquidating most of our entire herd of premium Zebu cattle. With the drought, grass is dead, ponds are drying up and hay is getting ridiculous and we can not continue to sink our savings into getting through these trying times. Over the past 12 months, we have all but ruined our pasture and simply do not have the resources (time, energy and money), to buy enough hay and feed to continue our breeding operations. It's really that simple
NO REASONABLE offer will be refused on multi-animal purchases.
Please understand, these are NOT low grade, substandard animals, these are some of the best examples of zebu cattle in North Texas. We have the show wins to back that up. All of our animals are registered with AMZA and several are dual registered with IMZA as well.
In this group, you will find. ( b=bull, c=cow, s=steer)
- Master Grand Championships - 5 Star Chili (b) and Sophia (c)
- Permanent Grand Champions - Little Damon (b), Princess and Baron(s)
- Grand Champion or Reserve Grand Champions - Adeline(c), Pluto(s), Liza Jane(c), El Caliente(b), Phoenix(c)
- Other "Non Show" mature animals that have produced champions - Amber (c) and Showgirl(c)
- Several beautiful red heifers and cows with Red Sam and Herd Name #758 in the pedigree.
Our bottle calves are our most popular. We have 2010 and 2011 bottle feed heifers for sale.

CSR had 2 AMZA - PGCH Sires
Crooked Star Ranch is proud to announce both of our herd sires have obtained the prestigious status of AMZA Permanent Grand Champion*. During much of the 2009-2010 show season 5Star Chili and SBF Damon were the senior bulls to beat, with 5 Star Chili winning AMZA Senior Bull of the Year.
In addition to his PGCH, 5Star Chili has obtained his Master Grand Champion Status.
Currently, we have several 2010 calves for sale from these sires and expecting our 2011 calving season to begin in March 2010
* A PGCH must win 4 Grand Champion Banners.
Crooked Star Ranch....
Crooked Star Ranch is located in Maypearl, Texas, approximately 30 miles south of Dallas.
We typically have between 60 - 70 animal on property and have something for everyone. About
We purchased out first animals in 2005 and have not looked back. Starting with only 5 animals, we have traveled the county to purchase some of the finest zebus available. We pride ourselves on healthy, good natured animals that either meet or exceed the breed standard set forth by both major registries. We currently have more than 60 animals. Although many are dual registered, CSR supports and registers all of our animals with American Miniature Zebu Association (AMZA)
We will guaranteed the health of every animal and pride ourselves on educating the buyer. Each animal sold will have a "bill of sale" and, upon request, will obtain a Texas Heath Certificate
