The Fall Roundup: Bring your cattle to be branded!
If you have cattle and need help branding for one reason or another, don’t have the facility, don’t have the help, need a little more knowledge, or a combination of all three, we would love to help you get the job done. We will have a crew of experienced and exceptional cattlemen here and the facilities to get the job done quick and efficient. Please bring your own brand. We have numbers for private herd numbers. If you don’t have a brand please call Bear. There will be a vet on hand if you wish for him to give your cattle any shots, OCV, etc. Branding cattle will be put into large community pens and sorted out.

Wednesday June 17th, 2015
June is flying by and half way over. The Summer Solice is fast apporaching and then we're on the down slope to winter. It makes me look forward to the fall, football season, cooler weather, and hunting. We've been getting scorched with hot and dry weather right now. This tropical storm that's coming through Texas right now is suppose to hit us this Sunday. Hopefully it's a nice soaking rain.
Other than that we are falling into summer routines, make hay, cut grass, weed eat, check cows, continue.
See you down the road...
