Rafter C Farms is located in the small town of Southmayd in North Texas 60 miles north of Dallas, 8 miles west of Sherman and 20 miles south of the Oklahoma border.

Colleen Woods was raised on a registered Angus Cattle Ranch so showing began at an early age. She has spent her entire life breeding, raising and showing animals. With a degree in Animal Science and a passion for Genetics, many great animals carry the Rafter C bloodlines. Her enthusiasm for breeding the 'best to the best' is contagious to many that visit the farm.

Partner in life, Malcolm Lacy grew up raising Herefords, farming to raise grain, baling hay and running cattle on wheat pastures as he still does today. It's only fitting that now together, both are committed to promoting continued improvement in breeding, raising, exhibiting and marketing World Class Animals to honor traditions of their past and complete their vision of the future. Both are serious about their 'job' agreeing to correct genetics coupled with average feed output and good care to improve the bottom line of generating more profitability and show winners.

Pipe dreams do not produce achievable results - homework, planning & hard work do!

Great pride is taken in working closely with our buyers - especially the young people. They are encouraged to pursue careeers in all livestock & agri-business. They believe the future of the livestock business is working together and enjoying mutual friends, talents and animals. Rafter C has incentive programs tailored to the interest of new breeders to help their futures as they grow and adapt to the ever changing emerging technologies in the business of ranching.

We thank you for taking time to look at our web site and hope to have the opportunity to help you with your next winner. You are cordially invited to visit Rafter C Farm to purchase show or breeder stock, breed to one of our sires or just chat about the animals.

Visions of yesteryear, pride of the present, and the promise of the future!
