Manterola Sheep Company Induction into Arizona Farming and Ranching Hall of Fame, March 2018

This is one of the sheep ranching families still in the business in Arizona.  The family started back in the early 1900s when Jose Antonio, called Tony,  arrived in the United States.  He first herded sheep in Texas but moved to Arizona.  He worked for different sheep ranchers before he partnered with three other men to form the Ohaco Sheep Company before he ventured off on his own in 1945.  His wife, Marianne, took over the operation of the Manterola Sheep Company when Tony passed away in 1956.
