Your Guide to the Best in Brahman

Learn Brahman Cattle Information

Here at B.R. Cutrer, Inc., the Cutrer family is very blessed to have over a century-old tradition of breeding Brahman cattle. We’ve been able to learn from of the greatest individuals in the breed.

Since going out on our own, we understand first hand that questions come up, and thus we have made education a top priority of B.R. Cutrer, Inc.. We can usually answer most questions whether it ranges from beef cattle production to technology, but we realize not everyone has that luxury. We are committed to helping others learn about Brahman cattle. We offer several educational opportunities for our customers and those interested in Brahman cattle.

9 Things to Consider Before Buying Cattle

Anyone who’s bought cattle from BRC knows that honesty and transparency is a big part of our sales process here at the ranch. In fact, lots of times we’ll tell prospective customers what’s WRONG with the cattle before we talk about what we like.

But, sadly, often we get a calls from breeders in some sort of pickle in the cattle business. They’re asking if what they are experiencing is “normal” and most of the time, it isn’t normal at all. And while we don’t comment on what you might experience with other ranches, we CAN tell you what you can experience with us: honesty, fair pricing, transparency, and accuracy.

But, after talking with lots of breeders, and ways they’ve gotten ‘burned,’ we have put together this list of things to consider BEFORE you buy cattle.
