The Cutrer Family
Meet Brandon and Rachel Cutrer, owners of B.R. Cutrer, Inc. Created out of a need for ranch generational change-over, B.R. Cutrer, Inc. was formed in the fall of 2019. Brandon and Rachel are blazing a new trail as the next generation of Brahman excellence, based on family heritage and bloodlines that have been pioneers in the Brahman breed for over a century.
The Cutrers run their Brahman herd with “old school” cattle knowledge combined with a fire for breed improvement. Learning from their mentors, the couple holds practical beef production methods dear. They understand that it’s these very methods, and the generosity of others, that helped create the champion cattle of their herd's foundation bloodlines and set the course for their herd today. These are values they readily share with others.
