Gray Ranch / M-Heart Corporation

In the late 1800's John Geddings (Ged) Gray began accumulating property in western Calcasieu parish between the Calcasieu River and the Sabine River.  The lush coastal prairie once known as "No Man's Land" would now be known as the Gray Ranch.

Ged Gray,  along with his daughter Matilda and sons Bill and Henry,  amassed land holdings from what is now Vinton, Louisiana,  southward to the Gulf of Mexico at Johnson Bayou, Louisiana.

Large herds of cattle and horses roamed Gray Ranch,  and before the term "rotational grazing" became popular,  herds were driven north to Ged (the oil producing town  named for its founder John Geddings Gray) for summer grazing,  and south to Johnson Bayou for winter grazing ... a system still used today.

Hands on Management by Ged's grand-daughter Matilda Gray Stream and her son, Harold H. (Spook) Stream III is evident in genetically improved cattle and horses while maintaining the historical value of Gray Ranch.
