Welcome to MacDonald Ranches!

MacDonald Ranches is a Salers and Optimizer composite seedstock provider owned and operated by Bill and Linda MacDonald along with their son, Will, and his wife, Jerilyn. The ranch headquarters is located about 10 miles southeast of Bismarck, North Dakota on the bluffs overlooking the north banks of the Missouri River along scenic State Highway 1804, so-named for the year Lewis and Clark traveled up the Missouri on their historic voyage. Our family has been in the beef cattle seedstock business since 1939 and has made a living on the same ranch since Bill’s grandfather homesteaded here in the 1870’s. Read the whole story...
