Do you need a website for your farm or ranch?  In today’s world, probably so, if you are in the business of marketing or selling your products.  The web has turned into the primary marketing and communication channel for the current generation, and it’s only going to grow.

While many of us still read paper trade journals related to our industry, and look through the advertising sections of those publications to see what’s out there, most of us also probably go to the web when we are on a mission to find something.  The phrase “google it” is now part of our common vernacular.

In our world of Murray Greys, the web is the perfect place to advertise breeding stock or direct market beef that you have for sale.   It’s a place to share your story, photos of your farm and stock, and let folks know more about you.  It makes your product available to anyone with a smartphone, tablet or computer.

So while a website is a great tool for breeders and direct marketers, it can be somewhat of a pain to get a professional website setup and online, and many of us don’t have the skillset ourselves to get it done.  And it can be expensive.

Our MGIA web developer, Houston Giles, has put together some special, inexpensive packages for MGIA members to get online with a simple, professional website.  As your farm or ranch business grows, your website can grow with you!  If you’d like a website with lots of bells and whistles, or if you’d like to upgrade or enhance your existing website, he can do that for you as well.

Houston is an MGIA member that has a good understanding of our industry.  In addition to computer programming and web development, he and his wife own and operate Giles Ranch, which raises purebred and commercial Murray Greys and crosses.  They also direct market beef.

A couple examples of Houston’s work are the the site you are enjoying right now,, as well as his farm site located at  If you need to get online with your own website, or update your existing site, email Houston at  [email protected].
