P & P Cattle Company
Situated in the heart of El Paso County’s shortgrass prairie, P & P Cattle Company offers viewing opportunities for many regional specialties including Burrowing Owl, Mountain Plover and Ferruginous Hawk. Depsite being located in an area where surface water is tremendously scarce, the P & P property is home to no fewer than nine playas that when wet may host a number of migrating shorebirds and waterfowl. The owners have worked with numerous conservation organizations to help protect and conserve the playas on their land. P & P Cattle is a working ranch with direct market beef and pork available.
