I see my position as Herdsman as an exceptional opportunity to maintain—and improve—the quality of our cattle and services. -Lyn Castaneda

August 14, 2019, Frost, TX – Moreno Ranches is proud to announce and welcome Lyn Castaneda as the Company’s Texas Division Herdsman.  Lyn will be responsible for show and sale cattle development, directing cattle nutrition, and contributing to herd wellness oversight, as well as general show barn management responsibilities.

Lyn is no stranger to the Mcheck team, as he joined the team as an intern three years ago and, as a junior, conducted our summer internship program. During that summer internship, he worked in the show barn in the Florida Division ranch, as well as in the Mcheck genetics center, assisting with donor management and other reproductive technologies.

Moreno Ranches Florida division is the largest operator of purebred seed stock Brahman cattle in the southeast, with an in-house lab and fully operational genetics center on site. It was there that Lyn served as an assistant herdsman over the sale and show cattle. During his successful tenure at Moreno Ranches Florida Division, he directed cattle inventory management systems and assisted with sales and business development efforts, including helping to host groups at the ranch during special visits or client tours.

Lyn also comes to Moreno Ranches with a strong work ethic and, most importantly, a desire to become part of the great Mcheck team.

Lyn also comes to Moreno Ranches with a strong work ethic and, most importantly, a desire to become part of the great Mcheck team. He plans to continue his education to further his skills in animal sciences.

Lyn stated, “I have loved working with cattle my whole life.  As I step in as the new Herdsman at Moreno Ranches, I reflect upon everyone who has had an impact in my life these past three years. It has been a privilege to work alongside many great people who have become like second family to me. They have guided me in seeing how to be the best of the best. I am honored and humbled to be representing Moreno Ranches and its legacy.   My passion for the cattle business runs deep and my goals are high for the future of Moreno Ranches.  I see my position as Herdsman as an exceptional opportunity to maintain—and improve—the quality of our cattle and services.  I also look forward to continuing to learn and be part of this great team and family tradition while working with current and future Mcheck customers.”

Kelvin Moreno, President and CEO of Moreno Ranches, stated, “We are very excited to welcome Lyn to our team as the Herdsman at Moreno Ranches Texas Division. Not only will Lyn bring a fresh focus on maintaining and developing customer relationships, including scheduling visits to our show/sales cattle barns, but he will also be a great role model for our youth who come into contact with him.”
