Bret is the South Ranch foreman and joined Wagonhammer Ranches in November 2020. Bret grew up in NW Iowa where Bret and his family raised quarter horses and ran their family tack business. We moved to Nebraska in 2008 when Bret went to work at the Pitzer Ranch. After being in the area, we decided that the Sandhills was where we wanted to stay and raise our family. We enjoy the lifestyle that goes along with ranching and being able to do it as a family. In our spare time, we can be found in the arena riding horses we have raised. Bret a 2005 graduate of Northeast Community College’s Animal Science program. He and his wife Shawna reside near Ericson, Nebraska with their five children, Braelynn, Paige, Calvin, Bentley, and Evelyn. Shawna is the preschool teacher at Wheeler Central Schools.
