Dennis Cattle Company

Our History

Dennis Cattle Company and Ranch was first established in 1889. The ranch covers over 30,000 acres of land in Oscar and Grady Oklahoma and Ringgold,Texas. Oscar, OK is 18 miles southeast of Ryan, OK. The name Oscar first originated from Oscar W. Seay, a prominent pioneer rancher who settled the land in 1889 and who established the ranch.

During the oil boom, which was from 1925 to 1927, the town of Oscar's population grew to 1,500. Oscar's son, Wilmer D. Seay, took over the ranch, which included raising Hereford cattle and Quarter horses. The ranch is still in operation today with Sue Seay Dennis (daughter to Wilmer D. Seay). Read more about our ranch history and Sue in the article "A Rancher's Daughter" published in the OK Farm and Ranch magazine September 29, 2015.

Sue and Skeeter's daughter, LaDonna Dennis Davis now runs the Quarter Horse operation, and their grandson, Zachary Smith is foreman of the ranch, which includes raising Hereford, Angus, and Longhorn Cattle.

The ranch has been a member of the Oklahoma and Texas Cattle Raisers Association for over 100 years. We are also members of the Working Hereford Cattle Raisers Association. In 2009 we were given the "Excellence in grazing" award by the Jefferson County Conservation District.

In 2010, our very own ranch foreman, Zachary Smith (grandson of Skeeter and Sue Dennis), started a helicopter business, which is called S & B Helicopter Tours.
