Muleshoe, Texas will soon be home to a new calf ranch. Fullmer Cattle Co., of Corona, Calif., has purchased more than 1,200 acres of land just west of the town to build a large calf-rearing facility.

According to an article from Lubbock Online, the company selected the area because it believes West Texas and New Mexico have the potential to be a large dairy center. During the past five years six new dairies have located in the area.

The company plans to be up and running in about 6 months with the potential to reach peak capacity of 75,000 head in two to three years. All calves will be raised to 300 pounds and then go to a feedlot, or for heifers return to the dairies. The facility will employ about 115 people once it reaches full capacity.
