No. 40 Kokernot Heirs
Among the most storied ranches in Far West Texas, the family’s o6 brand was first registered in Texas in 1837. John Kokernot bought it in 1872. He and his brother Lee then began grazing cattle west of the Pecos River. In 1912, Lee’s son, Herbert Lee Sr. (1867–1949), started assembling the ranches now known as the o6 and the Leoncita Cattle Company.
