Chas. S. Middleton Welcomes New Agent, Cooper Cogdell
Cooper Cogdell was born and raised on his family’s Tule Ranch located in Briscoe, Armstrong and Donley Counties. The Tule Ranch was originally a part of the historic JA Ranch before being purchased by Cooper’s great-grandfather in the 1950s. It is primarily located in the heart of the Palo Duro Canyon of the Texas Panhandle. Cooper’s family manages a cow/calf operation, as well as raises high-quality quarter horses to be used on the ranch and in the cutting horse arena.
In 2011, Cooper graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Agricultural and Applied Economics and a minor in Business. As a student Cooper was highly involved with the Texas Tech Ranch Horse Team which claimed three straight National Championships. Cooper then went on to coach the team to its fourth national title, while also working toward a Masters degree in Agribusiness.
While in graduate school, Cooper had the opportunity to intern for Chas. S. Middleton and Son. During this time he was responsible for creating ranch maps and putting together listing brochures. He also gained an understanding of the farm and ranch real estate industry from a behind the scenes perspective. After graduation, Cooper was employed by PlainsCapital Bank in Lubbock, Texas, as a credit analyst where he helped assess loans for all types of businesses and individuals. At PlainsCapital, Cooper worked with great people and gained valuable experience in the banking industry and the lending process.
This past year, Cooper, his wife Holly and their one-year-old daughter McCrae moved back to the family ranch to begin their own operation. Alongside ranching, Cooper has teamed up with Chas. S. Middleton and Son to represent buyers and sellers of farm and ranch properties in the Panhandle and Rolling Plains regions of Texas. In addition to ranching and real estate, he enjoys competing in cutting and ranch horse competitions on horses his family has raised. Cooper also serves on the Ranching Heritage Association Board of Directors and the advisory committee for the Texas Tech Ranch Horse Team.
