Bob Beauprez is a Colorado native, buffalo rancher, author, former dairyman and Member of Congress.
Raised on a third generation dairy farm near Lafayette, he spent 20 years in partnership with his parents and brother marketing their animals across the globe. Following his dairy career, Bob purchased and managed a community bank growing assets from $4 to over $400 million in 12 years. He also managed the family’s real estate development, creating a 1500 residential unit golf course community.
In 2002, Bob was elected as the first representative from Colorado’s 7th Congressional District, and re-elected in 2004. While in Congress, he served on the Ways & Means, Transportation, and Veterans Committees. He was the Republican nominee for Governor in 2006 and 2014.
In 2007 Bob founded a public policy e-magazine, A Line of Sight. His work has been featured in National Review, The Washington Times, Townhall.com, RealClearPolitics, Politico, The Hill, The Daily Caller, The Denver Post, and numerous other publications. In 2009, Bob published his first book, A Return to Values: a Conservative looks at his Party, that has been applauded for his bold “Agenda for America,” a strategic plan to reclaim the nation’s greatness.
In addition to his writing, political, and other activities, Bob says his greatest enjoyment comes from Eagle’s Wing Ranch, the buffalo breeding ranch in the northern Colorado Mountains he operates with Claudia, his wife of 44 years, and Jim and Julie Beauprez, their son and daughter-in-law. It’s where he and Claudia love to spend time with their four children and four grandchildren and count their abundant blessings.
