Legend Of The Ranch Story: Max America reigned supreme at the Triple “R” Ranch and Winery. As the primary purebred registered longhorn bull, Max captivated everyone with his 6’ horn span. In September of 2016, during his grand arrival, Max unintentionally found himself sharing a field with Lakota, the majestic white buffalo, sparking an unforgettable clash between these two formidable beasts. At age 13, Max has now earned a well-deserved retirement. As the torchbearer of Max’s impressive lineage, Freckles, one of his proud offspring, has ascended to the position of the main bull at the Triple “R” Ranch and Winery.
