The Fisher Ranch is located in southeastern Karnes County, Texas near the towns
of Runge and Nordheim. The ranch is located in the region of Texas known as the
South Texas Plains. This eco-region lies between the Gulf of Mexico/Coastal Bend
and the Texas Hill Country.
Ranch weather/climate is mostly warm with freezing temperatures a rarity in the
winter. Summers are hot and rainfall can seem non-existent. We have very little
improved pasture on the ranch. Our longhorns graze on native grass and browse the
available native brush. Huisache, Mesquite, Granjeno, and Pear Cactus are abundant.
The Fisher Ranch is a family ranch with Bruce and Karen Fisher carrying out the
day-to-day chores and responsibilities. Our registered Texas Longhorn breeding
program is small by comparison but we do have a variety of colorful and well-conformed
Our primary interest on the ranch is caring for our longhorns, but, we do love our
wildlife also! Whitetail deer, turkey, quail, etc. are abundant on the property
and we spend a good bit of time ensuring that the wildlife is cared for as well.
