Welcome to B.R. Cutrer, The Brahman Ranch Dedicated to Reaching New Heights of Excellence.
A Family Heritage of Cattle, Land, Faith, and Courage.
Honoring a 150+ year family heritage built on the pillars of faith, courage, and integrity, B.R. Cutrer is redefining the future of legendary Brahman cattle, to set new international standards in quality, pedigree, and performance.
Founded by Brandon and Rachel Cutrer, the B.R. Cutrer Ranch is home to the renowned BRC brand and has gained global recognition for embracing innovation and modernity, while upholding the values of cattle ranching tradition.
It all began one hundred and eighty years ago…
Texas was a new frontier and, while Rachel Cutrer’s ancestors had survived the war of Texas Independence, life as they knew it would never be the same again. They returned home only to find that many of their dwellings had been burned down by the Mexican army. Driven by courage and perseverance, they started over again and eventually went on to develop the American Brahman breed of cattle that we know and love today.
The Origins of BRC
Since the great Texas frontier, cattle ranching has been the lifeblood of the family—one relative served as a Texas Ranger, driving cattle along the Chisholm Trail; another farmed thousands of acres along the Brazos River, building a life for his family and several other sharecroppers on his family’s land. And, equally important, many of the Cutrer family ancestors served our country as veterans in the U.S. Armed Forces.
In 1936, Rachel’s fourth generation great grandmother, Rachel Ann Northington Hudgins, who was a pioneer Texas rancher, became the first woman in Wharton county to register her own cattle brand. Together with her four sons, she founded the cattle ranching operation that became known as J.D. Hudgins, Inc.—the largest Brahman ranch in the USA and the proud owners of Manso, who remains the most significant Brahman bull in history.
Rachel Cutrer herself was born and raised on a Brahman cattle operation owned by her grandparents, Sloan and Mollie Williams. They graciously allowed Rachel to be an integral part of that operation from 1979 to 2019 and today many BRC cattle still carry their legacy brand.
Throughout her life, Rachel’s cattle have been identified with the "R" shoulder brand. For 40 years the "R" shoulder brand built a worldwide following, which has since created tremendous demand for B.R. Cutrer’s innovative new "BRC" brand. BRC has become an icon and a global status symbol of Brahman bloodline excellence.
BRC: Where Legacy Meets Modernity
BRC: The Forefront of a New Generation
Committed to honoring those who came before us by continuing to elevate the Brahman breed, our B.R. Cutrer team works tirelessly to elevate Brahman industry standards.
Faced with frontiers quite different from those of our ancestors, but nonetheless pertinent and still requiring faith, courage, hard work, and passionate persistence, we devote our lives to raising the world’s most exceptional Brahman cattle.
We believe that today’s frontiers are achieved by building loyal relationships, by leveraging science, and by constantly innovating.
The stories and traditions of our forefathers, who paved the way for the Brahman operation we run today, inspire us to continue to pursue our vision for the future—a vision of excellence, in which our cattle receive the very best care and, in turn, our clientele enjoy the best value for their investment.
We would like nothing more than to welcome you to the B.R. Cutrer family. Please contact us for personalized assistance.

Celebrating BRC’s 150+ Year Heritage
"May his favor be upon you, for a thousand generations, and your children, and their children, and their children, and their children." -"The Blessing" Elevation WorshipWhile the BRC brand is known for next-generational innovation, our traditional values and rich heritage remain at the core of everything we do. We would therefore be remiss not to pay tribute to the seven generations of Brahman ranchers who came before us. Visionaries of their time, these brave men and women worked tirelessly, risking it all to build a better life for our family. They paved the way for excellence, inspired us, mentored us, and instilled in us that the most important resources of all are the people who devote their lives to the cattle. It is them we must thank and remember, for they are the reason that B.R. Cutrer exists today and has since become one of the most respected Brahman cattle operations in the world.
