Prater Canyon Wagyu and Livestock History
On July 16, 1923, John Franklin Jenkins was given ownership of what is known today as Prater Canyon Cattle and Livestock from President Warren G. Harding. Prior to this, John Jenkins (John Franklin's father) would drive his cattle each spring from Newton, Utah to the Valley of the Stars in Western Wyoming. After 3 generations of farming and cattle raising, Prater Canyon is now proud to offer grass fed, hormone and antibiotic-free, USDA prime and prime plus Wagyu Beef.
