Flying L Ranch

In the foothills of the Arbuckle Mountains, you will find the Flying L Ranch in Davis, Oklahoma. Along the Washita River, the ranch boasts green pastures year round, making it one of the greatest feed ranches of the Southwest.

The ranch was the location for the movie “Home in Oklahoma” and the film’s stars, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, married on the ranch in 1946.

With the goal of raising Herefords, the herd began with 35 cows brought to the ranch in 1950 from a herd of their uncle. The Flying L was one of the first ranches in the state to initiate a formal performance testing program on their stock and has gained international prominence in cattle exportation. The ranch holds one of the earliest water irrigation rights, and their Midland Bermuda Grass nursery, one the state’s first, has supplied root stock for thousands of acres in southern Oklahoma.
