Dr. Jonas Fisher M.D. started laying the groundwork for this historic by staking his claim on land in Oklahoma County in the original Oklahoma Land Run on April 22, 1889. His son, Roy Fisher Sr., continued to expand the family’s land and commercial cattle operation over the next generation.
In the late 1940’s the patriarch’s grandson, Roy Fisher Jr., began putting together land in McIntosh County, Oklahoma after graduating from Oklahoma State University and spending two years in the U.S. Army. It was around this same time when Roy Jr. began putting together a band of American Quarter Horse mares, formulating the early beginnings of what would become the Fisher Ranch Performance Horse Program. Fisher worked to preserve bloodlines that provided a consistent source of prospects and breeding stock for ranches, competitors and foundation horse breeders. Roy Jr. spent the better part of 60 years dedicating the Fisher Ranch breeding program to producing horses with superior cow sense, unparalleled disposition and all-around athletic ability. He believed the top hands that could make their living on a horse couldn’t afford to lose wages on a sorry mount.
Roy Jr. was a life-long student of genetics and self-stated “believer of families,” which is how he approached improving his horses. Fisher Ranch takes pride in preserving the legendary cow horse cross of Bert and Oklahoma Star foundation bloodlines. Fisher foals are known for their uniformity in both conformation and ability. The Fisher Ranch Horse breeding program achievements include many notable horses raised on the ranch, used as foundation stock, or bred as outcrosses to improve the quality of today’s American Quarter Horse. The Fisher Ranch is recognized as a Legacy Award Winner by The American Quarter Horse Association and multiple world champion Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association competitors have won while riding the Fisher-bred horses.
The Fisher Ranch is a true working cattle ranch that was put together with efficiency and productivity in mind. The improvements are modest and reflect the family’s goal to maintain a profitable and sustainable ranch operation that would stand the test of time. Management of the ranch prioritizes investments with respect to the needs of the livestock and tends to eliminate unnecessary expenses. Nestled in the surrounding hills that border Lake Eufaula, the Fisher Ranch is an excellent home to livestock with:
- well-balanced rangeland grazing estimated at 50% native grasses
- 40% Bermuda grasses
- over 100 water sources including multiple live water creeks, lakes & ponds
- the balance in timber and brush
In addition to agricultural aspects, the ranch produces income from a quarry operation that harvests natural stone for architectural construction projects throughout the country. The ranch has excellent highway access bordering State Highway 9 for over 7 miles, offering investment buyers the potential to divide and further develop the property.
Hunting & recreational aspects of the ranch offer excellent opportunities to harvest some of the largest southeastern Oklahoma Whitetail Deer. Diverse terrain with elevation changes, timber covered areas and mid-level bedding provide habitat for deer, turkey, and upland game. The many water sources offer great prospects for waterfowl and fishing adventures. Hiking, horseback riding, swimming, boating and other activities are a natural fit for the area. Lake Eufaula, the largest lake in Oklahoma, is less than a mile from the ranch border (as the crow flies) and a mere 10-minute drive. This area features some of the finest modern lake communities in the state.
