More Information on the MR Cattle Ponzi Scheme

In April 2021, a federal grand jury charged Mark Ray and his associates, Reva Stachniw and Ron Throgmartin, with soliciting investments in a cattle-trading business and using new investor money for personal use or to pay earlier investors, in a $650 million Ponzi scheme. 

According to the Department of Justice, Ray and his associates told investors that their money would be backed by short-term investments in cattle; they solicited money for the Colorado-based marijuana business, Universal Herbs LLC; and they falsely promised investors that their money would be used for legitimate cattle- or marijuana-based business activity. In all three variations of the scheme, investors were promised returns of approximately 10-20% over periods as short as several weeks. The DOJ alleged that investors lost millions of dollars. 

Other Mark Ray businesses we are investigating include:

  • Custom Consulting and Product Services, LLC
  • MR Cattle Production Services, LLC
  • Universal Herbs, LLC; DBC Limited, LLC
  • RM Farm and Livestock, LLC
  • Sunshine Enterprises
