No. 31 Zane & Tanya Kiehne

345,000 acres (NEW TO LR100)

A fourth-generation rancher, Zane Kiehne was raised in New Mexico on a US Forest Service allotment with very little deeded land. He became a ranch broker and finally bought his own in 1994 when he acquired the KYLE RANCH in Loving County, Texas. Tanya Kiehne was born and grew up in Pecos, Texas, where she worked for the Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency until the family’s ranches required her full-time attention. Z&T HOLDINGS now includes ranches in seven Texas counties as well as seven counties in New Mexico. With the exception of two West Texas ranches, Z&T’s properties tend to be mountainous and are full of wildlife: elk, mule deer, whitetails, turkey, antelope, Barbary sheep, oryx, mountain lion, and bear. Some of Z&T’s New Mexico ranches also feature trout streams. Raising top-quality cattle and horses while improving rangeland conditions is a priority for the Kiehnes as is managing for wildlife. Some of Z&T’s most recent acquisitions include the 46,000-acre HUECO RANCH near El Paso and Bob Funk’s 165,000-acre UU BAR RANCH near Cimarron, New Mexico.
