Regardless of which direction you are heading on Hwy 21, you will come to the intersection of Hwy 21 and CR 107.
There's a big 'BeefMasters' sign on the corner.
Turn left on CR 107 and go about 3 miles. Stay to the right when you reach the CR 106 / CR 107 fork.
After the fork in the road, stay on CR 107 and continue driving. You will pass several houses and farms, then CR 107 makes a right angle turn, and the pavement changes.
Keep going on the red rock part of CR 107 another 0.2 mile, until it intersects CR 145, which is paved.
Turn right on CR 145, which ends in a cul de sac.
You'll get to our gate. If it's closed, we are setting up for class and are not ready for students yet. If it's open, drive on in.
Keep going straight, onto the A Zone road. Watch out for dogs, cows, deer and other animals. The speed limit on the road is 10 mph and we do enforce it.
Follow the road about 400 yards to the rangehouse and berms. Park in the marked area by the cattle pen. The main entrance to the building is on the range side (not the cattle pen side).
