BR Cutrer, Inc. was formed in September 2019, as we closed the chapter of our affiliation with V8 Ranch. We treasure these times, and the advice Rachel’s grandparents gave us. We appreciate the four decades they so graciously allowed us to be part of their entity.
We weren’t expecting this change, but when it happened, we called upon the strength and inspiration of generations of our ancestors before who boldly and courageously faced the challenges life put in their path over the last 150 years of our family’s ranching heritage.
We were blessed to have a great foundation herd – carrying the well known “R” shoulder brand. Over the last decade, we had also been steadily expanding our own independent herd and land purchases. We had built our land holdings to a little over 400 acres, and had our cattle numbers right at a little over 200 head of registered Brahmans. Brandon’s breeding had produced many of the leading Brahman cattle of the last decade: 21, Noble, Sweetie, Dutton, and more.
We are proud of the new brand we built, and grateful for the overwhelming acceptance we have seen. But, we are even more proud of the feedback we have gotten from friends and customers. They say how much they enjoy working with us, and how we treat them fairly, and how they believe in the progressive things we are doing.
This experience taught us that while it’s nice if you can inherit land and cattle to start your ranching operation – it isn’t a requirement. We did not inherit a single acre, a single cow, or a single piece of equipment from anyone. We built it all – little by little – through a game plan, budgeting, generous mentors, and God’s grace. This experience also has fueled our passion to help others be a success in their Brahman journey.
