Rich in Heritage
Good, Hard Working People, Looking for Opportunity to Carry out their Passion.
Where it all began
Drew’s great grandfather, Victor Perez, migrated from Spain in 1905 at the age of 15. Arriving in New York, he rode the train to central New Mexico where he worked for five years building his own stakes in America. Victor built a lifetime around the sheep industry establishing his own family heritage with commercial and purebred Rambouillet sheep. In 1926, he incorporated horned Hereford cattle. Victor is known as one of the pioneer shepherds for running both sheep and cattle together.

Where livestock &
show heritage enriches
A passion for livestock
Years of judging and showing stems back for decades
and was the foundation of what brought a family together
One thing that was common amongst the families’ heritage was their passion for the livestock and horse arena. Years of judging and showing stems back for decades and was the foundation of what brought Drew and Lauren together. What they admire most is their ancestors taking risks to dream for more and having the courage to not only seek opportunities, but go down in history for making it happen.
Running P Cattle Co. is a new generation with big dreams to establish new roots in Texas while taking with them the skills and characteristics from their ancestors. While they might be little, Drew and Lauren are most proud to see this new fond love for livestock and horses in their children’s eyes. They are the next generation of agriculturalists trickling down the heritage from the pioneers that came before them. From Day 1, Mila (Jewels), named after her great-grandmother, carries on her passion for loving all animals and wanting to have as many of them on the ranch. Mila jumps at the chance to go help her dad drive the truck and check cows. Myles (James), named after the James family, can be found with a rope in hand and with any horse in sight from his stick horses to his new gelding purchased this last year carrying his grand-father’s bloodlines back to the well-known Colonial Hotrodder.
