A Brief History of the XIT Ranch
XIT Ranch has a colorful and interesting history. During the 1880s, it was the largest ranch in the world, which also happened to be entirely fenced. It incorporated 1,500 miles of fencing around the perimeter of the massive ranch. XIT, which started its operations as a ranch in 1885, was so large that it stretched across many counties including Baily, Castro, Cochran, Dallam, Deaf Smith, Hartley, Hockley, Lamb, Oldham, and Parmer.
There is a myth that the name XIT actually stood for Ten in Texas, as it was covered parts of the ten aforementioned counties. However, there is another legend as to how they came up with the name for the ranch. As with many ranches of the day, they needed to have a brand made to help reduce the problems with cattle rustling. Using XIT as the brand was difficult for rustlers to reproduce, so that is quite likely the reason it is called the XIT Ranch. Whichever version might be true, both are certainly interesting.
