Sterling Cattle LLC

2925 Craig Frontage Road
Wolf Creek, MT 59648


About Us:

One of his daughters married Joe Sterling, and that is where the name Sterling comes into play.  Joe and his wife and their only son, Frank Sterling, kept either homesteading or buying property around Craig in what is now the Holter Lake areas. In 1924 they decided to incorporate the business.

The ranch was first a cattle ranch, but when the wolves put them out of the cattle business, it was then run as a sheep operation herders until around the time of World War II. At that time they went back to cattle, due to the lack of available labor force.

In the 1950s, Frank's youngest daughter, Joyce, and husband Gary Blackman moved back to the ranch.  Gary worked with his father-in-law until Frank Sterling's passing in 1983. Their son, Scott, started working on the ranch in 1980.
