Gage Heirs 213,730 acres Big Bend cattle baron Alfred S. Gage spent decades building his Far West Texas cattle kingdom. At its height, the A.S. Gage Ranch encompassed more than a half a million acres. Today, visitors to the Big Bend can wine and dine or even spend the night at his headquarters. Gage commissioned El Paso architect Henry Trost to design what is now one of the Trans-Pecos's favorite get- aways, the Gage Hotel ( Cassidy Heirs 212,985 acres After emigrating from Nova Scotia to Maine, John Cassidy accumulated a fortune in timberlands, mills, and other real estate. His son, J.W., inherited those original 200,000 acres and continued to manage and expand the family holdings. The plan worked: Cassidy Timberlands is still among the nation's most successful Maine and Florida timber management firms.

He and his family own many noteworthy farms and ranches throughout the Golden State and Nevada. Take Gabrych's 18,200-acre Rock Springs Ranch near King City, north of Los Angeles. Rock Springs is one of the premier hunting cattle ranches in the San Joaquin Valley. To this day, it is unspoiled by man and machine. Langdale Family 200,000 acres The family's success in the timber industry dates back to the 1890s, when John W. Lang- dale began harvesting turpentine and rosin timber from Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp. Today, Langdale Company is still focused on forestry management and forest products. The third-generation owners stay true to the company mission by maintaining sustainable practices. Bogle Family 192,000 acres Tennessee native Hal Bogle left the Volunteer State for health reasons in 1917. He settled in Southern New Mexico where he ended up building a ranching empire. In the decades since his death, Bogle's heirs have continued his legacy, including the development of a much-lauded Quarter Horse program. Bogle Ltd. now consists of three separate farms, a farming operation, and a feedlot. Hunt Family 190,000 acres The history of Hunt Oil Company dates back to a starry night in 1934. Although H.L. Hunt initially focused on the East Texas Oilfield, his son Ray and his family now own and operate farms, ranches, and other landholdings in Arizona, Montana, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming through their family-owned Hoodoo Land and Cattle Company. 106 The LandReport | W I N T E R 2 0 1 4 LANDREPORT.COM The L and Report 100 The historic Hoodoo Ranch is located between Yellowstone National Park and Cody, Wyoming.
