F-1s are being born now, Fall of 2013, by our current herdsire, 665 - please think of us for your replacements!

We also raise herd bull prospects - here is a bull that is currently siring babies at the Powells' farm in Greenville, Alabama.  We also select for temperament!  

A Rafter J half-Brahman heifer  topped the Open Hiefers offered at the Eighth Annual BCIA Herdbuilder Sale held on August 25, 2006, in Uniontown, Alabama.  Congratulations to Blake and Jessica Hargroder on thier purchase!  This marked the Ranch's second consecutive year producing the sale-topping Open Heifer in the Herdbuilder Sale! 

 Here is a photo of the Rafter J lot topping the Open Heifers in the Seventh Annual BCIA Herdbuilder Sale in 2005.  Jimmy Lane Broussard of Newbern, Alabama, purchased both animals for $1,100.00 each.  We hear his sons are petting on them daily!  Congratulations on purchasing a fine pair!


Additionally, pictured here (and in the below Advertisement featured in July's Alabama Cattleman) is Tag #1 from the 2005 Herdbuilder Sale.

    This heifer was purchased from us by Bob Wilson and Jack Rhodes of Pine Grove Ranch, Newbern, Alabama.
