About Us

Capitol Land & Livestock is one of the largest cattle distributors in the United States. Our company was established in 1946 by Eugene Schwertner. Today his son Jim Schwertner, and grandson Jimmy Schwertner continue to carry on the values and traditions of the late Eugene Schwertner.


Capitol Land & Livestock is a cattle dealership. Not order buyer. That means we have fresh cattle right out of the markets for sale every day. We buy farm and ranch fresh calves and yearlings in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

Capitol Land & Livestock also offers a weaning program, called Schwertner Select, that adds extra value to our customer’s cattle. We have weaned over 150,000 calves yearly for the past 30 years. We own 20,000 acres of improved pastures that are set up in 100-500 acre tracts. We turn calves out on their natural habitat in order to decrease stress throughout the weaning process. We utilize supplemental feed as well as a full time on site veterinary and cowboy staff to insure the health and safety of your cattle.


The people at Capitol, Land, and Livestock pride ourselves on customer service and making sure that we provide quality and value to our customers. We look forward to working with you and feel free to call us at any time.
