Making Goode cattle better

By Jennifer M. Latzke

Jimmy and Glennette Goode have heard all of the puns about their last name, but they don't mind.

Through technology and sound breeding, they're making their "Goode" Angus better.

A future rooted in history

Just outside of Pampa, Texas, in the northern corner of the Panhandle, sits the Goode Angus Ranch. Here, on land that is itself a history lesson in Texas ranching, the Goodes use the tools of today to improve their registered Angus herd. It's a far cry from how Glennette's father, Glen Dawkins, used to ranch.

"At one time he ran a registered Hereford herd, but for the last several years he ran a commercial herd of Brangus with a variety of bulls," Glennette said. "He didn't tag his cattle, and he ran a bull with the cows year round but that was because he just liked to watch the calves. So, we'd spend a weekend two times a year rounding up calves and taking them to the market." Mostly, the herd back then was another piece of the family's diversified agricultural and real estate enterprise in the Pampa area.
