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.

New Brahman Breeder Guide

New Brahman Breeder Guide

The average life span of a company is 20 years. But, sadly, the average life span of a registered seedstock cattle business is only 7 years. That's barely enough to see through past two generational intervals in your herd. Many ranchers spend hundreds of thousands of dollars investing in building their dream ranch, only to sell out in less than a decade. 
But, it takes education, transparency and integrity. And it means helping new ranchers be profitable, successful and accepted.
BRC would like to change that. We've put together this 40 page free guide that we would love to send you in the mail. Click on the button below to get the free guide.

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.

"Man Must Measure" - Jan Bonsma

In 2011, we received a copy of this old, but outstanding book about animal husbandry, environment, and fertility from Louis Dooley, a fellow Brahman breeder. Reading this book changed our entire outlook on where our priorities should be in our Brahman herd. Until 2020, this was a rare book find. To celebrate BRC's 1st anniversary, we completed a full reprint and digital upgrade of the book in cooperation with The Wortham Foundation. The book is available on Amazon at cost - only $3.99 - as part of The Wortham Foundation's strong desire to share Dr. Bonsma's great works.
