Upon graduation, Sam was hired to manage Logan Ranch located in Valley Mills, Texas. During his time at Logan Ranch, Sam developed and operated all aspects of a 1,750 head stocker operation from purchasing to grazing to marketing. He also assisted in the expansion of their hunting program and further honed his range management skills by operating an intensive rotational grazing system. In 2009, Sam and his wife, Julie, moved to San Angelo where he embarked on a business of his own - 2R Cattle Company. As owner/operator of 2R Cattle Company, Sam continued to recognize the importance of managing and improving land resources.
In 2010 Sam decided to add real estate sales to his credentials and had the privilege of working under Brian Treadwell, founding Broker of Treadwell Ranch & Recreation. Sam learned from Brian’s expertise in ranch and recreational land as well as his work in conservation and prescribed burning.
Sam and Julie returned home in 2012, after Sam was chosen by the Katy Prairie Conservancy to manage the historic Warren Ranch located in Hockley, Texas. He also joined Julie at Open Door Realty, and continues his collaboration with Brian Treadwell through their joint venture, Texas Land Stewards.
