Bill and Gail Davis own and operate Chimney Rock Cattle Co. in Concord, Ark. Having never owned any brand of cattle other than Brangus, Bill feels he is very familiar with both the purebred and commercial aspects of the breed. The cattle industry is in the middle of record setting times, and no other breed has more potential for growth than Brangus.
As a third generation cattleman, Cody Gariss co-owns and operates his family’s diversified cattle operation in Lamar, Mo. The Gariss Ranch consists of approximately 50 registered Brangus cows, more than 400 commercial Brangus females, and, in addition, markets nearly 1,000 yearlings annually.
Mike Kammerer, along with his wife Judy, own and operate Red Bird Meadows in Montgomery County, Texas. Mike has a passion for the cattle industry that stems from his involvement as a young man with one of the largest registered Angus and quarter horse ranches in Colorado. He spent all of his spare time at the ranch learning as much as he could about the operation while cultivating a dream of one day owning his own cattle ranch.
Edward (Eddy) Roberts’ family has deep roots in the Suwannee River Valley located in northern Florida. He was born and raised on the farm where his great grandfather settled in the early 1860s only three miles from where Roberts currently resides. Roberts’ father, Walter, bought and took over the farm in 1945, and the farm became a family operated business in 1972. W.E.T. Farms was established, representing each stakeholder in its name, Walter, Eddy and Ted. Roberts is now the sole survivor and operator of the farm.
