Meet Juan Carlos

Third-generation cowboy, Juan Carlos “JC” Montes lives and works in Rio Grande City, Texas as a USDA Mounted Patrol Inspector. His job comes with the immense responsibility to keep illegal cattle that could carry ticks, disease, and bacteria, from crossing America’s borders. At his core, JC is family oriented and takes pride in being a husband and father. Outside of work, he continues to help run his family’s 2,500-head cattle ranch.
