Tanecka Ranch specialized in Red Brangus show cattle on their Columbus, Texas ranch. Laura and Marvin Tanecka run the ranch and turned it into a true family affair, with the addition of their son, Matthew, his wife Brianne and son Tyler -- the entire family assists in the ranch operations.

Also instrumental in the ranch operations are the Tanecka Ranch "show girls", Blair Tomlinson and Morgan McKnight, both young ladies are heavily involved at the shows and do an excellent job for Team Tanecka! Established in 2001, on only 25 acres, their ranch has since grown to become a flourishing cattle ranch producing Grand Champion stock. In October 2007 Marvin purchased a bull, a cow and a heifer at the Don Cox cattle sale, Marvin said: “From then on it has been a steady purchase of Red Brangus, mostly from Don Cox’s herd. I give most of the credit to Don as he has provided me with the opportunity and the knowledge to continue my ranch as a Red Brangus breeder."

The Red Brangus breed was developed to produce an animal with the superior qualities of both the Angus and the Brahman cattle with a high heat, disease and parasite tolerance. The Red Brangus produce a unique quality of beef and is a hardy breed.
There are currently 40 head of Red Brangus cows and three Red Brangus herd bulls on the ranch. Marvin takes pride in the success he has had marketing females and commercial bulls. Tanecka Ranch exhibited its first show cattle in 2013, winning first in class in Houston with the heifer they showed. They look forward to showin in both San Antonio and Houston in 2016.
