North Spade Ranch is 75,000 acres on four ranches; Turkey Creek, Turtle Hole, Bridle Bit and Deer Springs. The ranches are located in Motley and Hall counties in the Rolling Plains close to Turkey, Texas. Half the cattle are Simm/Angus cows bred to Balancer bulls while the other half of the cattle are Balancer cows bred to Simm/Angus bulls. This allows the ranches to trade replacement heifers with one-another in order to maintain that cross and breed composition. North Spade is managed by Andy Falcon. Chris Crump is the campman at Turtle Hole and Walter Pettit is campman at Deer Springs Camp.
Andy Falcon grew up near Sweetwater, TX and has worked on many outfits spanning from Arizona down to New Mexico and Texas. He has been with Spade Ranch since 2004. He ran Turtle Hole camp for many years before moving to Turkey Creek as the North Spade Ranch Manager in 2014. Andy is married to Debbie and has four sons, Dakota, Wichita, Utah and Prescott Falcon.
