|Let us introduce you to a group of folks who are an integral part of the R.A. Brown Ranch Team. We have hand selected these herds to help us increase the number of bulls offered in our sale while maintaining the strong quality we demand in our breeding program. These herds are similar to ours in 1). The strength of their genetics, 2). The strictness of their herd health program and 3) The integrity of the data reported. These bulls come with the same breeding guarantee and customer service you have come to expect from the R.A. Brown Ranch. The bulls arrive in Throckmorton, TX after weaning to be grown and developed with our bulls under the same management program. One of the blessings that has developed from this aspect of our business is the relationships we have developed with these fine people. There are lots of great people in the “cow business” and we think many of them are on this list.
|Double A Cattle
Double A Cattle Company is a rather new cattle partnership that originated as a result of a five generation family farming and ranching operation that began in Nolan County about 7 miles south of Roscoe, Texas back in 1917. At that time, the Alexander’s, who were primarily cotton farmers, migrated west from Livingston, Texas to escape uncontrollable insect damage to East Texas cotton, while the Graham family, who were primarily cattle ranchers, migrated east from Fort Stockton, Texas to escape drought. Living just across the road from each other, W.J. Alexander and Johnny Lee Graham married a short time later, and began the legacy. In 1957, in an attempt to escape the drought of the 50’s, W. J. bought a ranch in Coryell County, and turned the Roscoe operation over to his youngest son, Dean. Dean Alexander farmed independently until 1977, when his two sons, Mike and Kim, joined the operation known as Alexander & Sons. In 1989, when Dean retired, Mike and Kim formed a partnership known as Alexander Farms. Then in 2004, when Mike’s oldest son, Justin, and Kim’s only son, Roddy, joined the family farm, the operation was split, as Mike kept Alexander Farms, and Kim, his wife Marsha, and son Roddy formed Alexander Ag.
In 2006, Alexander Ag got into the Red Angus registered seed stock business when they bought 4 registered Red Angus bred heifers at the RA Brown Ranch Annual Sale. They began to gradually expand the registered seed stock operation, and in 2011 were invited to become cooperators in the RA Brown Ranch Bull Cooperative. In 2012, in an attempt to accelerate the herd expansion, Alexander Ag merged its seed stock operation with Justin Alexander, and his wife, Tamara, who ran a commercial cattle operation, to form Double A Cattle Company, which today consists of registered Red Angus bulls, cows and heifers and commercial Simangus cattle.
Double A Cattle Company is committed to producing high quality cattle that meet the demands of an ever-changing market place. Using Artificial Insemination, Embryo Transfer and In-vitro Fertilization along with continuous data analysis allows us to rapidly adapt to the market needs of today as well as prepare for anticipated future trends.We are very fortunate and blessed to be a part of the R.A. Brown team. As a unified body of cooperators we are able to capitalize on the experience, knowledge and expertise of each individual team member. We look forward to the future growth of the registered seed stock industry and the strengthening of the many great relationships within the RA Brown Ranch Bull Cooperative family, as the future looks extremely bright for the beef industry.

October 2011, inspired to help feed a hungry world, Don & Denise
acquired their first two registered Red Angus cows. Their goal is to
produce cattle with strong growth and carcass traits without
sacrificing efficiency. They could not have obtained a better
foundation in the Red Angus seedstock business than C-Bar & Brown
Abigrace T714, declared by Donnell Brown to be his “pick for the
best Abigrace daughter in production.” This acquisition was followed
the next year by the purchase of an interest in the high selling bull
at the 2012 RA Brown Ranch Fall Bull Sale, Brown JYJ Redemption
Y1334. In their spare time, Don practices law in Fort Worth and
Denise is a licensed real estate agent. They have two grown children ,

|CEDAR HILL FARM
Cedar Hill Farm, located in Jane Lew, Almost Heaven, West Virginia, is owned and operated by Dan and Alicia Stickel along with our daughter Chelsea. We manage all aspects of our cattle operation from health management to feeding, breeding and calving with limited outside help so we fully understand the importance of functional, low maintenance, trouble free cattle.
At Cedar Hill Farm we manage our registered Red Angus herd in steep hilly terrain under commercial cattle conditions. In 1996 we began using a Red Angus bull in a crossbreeding program on Seneford and Black Senegus cattle. The Red Angus calves performed exceptionally well and since that time our herd has expanded to include over 200 head of registered 1A Red Angus females.
Our goal is to set the standard for functional, trouble free, user friendly beef cattle. Our breeding program places emphasis on maintaining large correctly sorted contemporary groups to assure the data we collect accurately reflects the performance and functionality of each individual within our herd. It is with confidence that we can guarantee every animal we sell.
Alexander Ag is a 3,000 acre farming and ranching operation in Roscoe, Texas since 1917. Kim and Marsh Alexander were married in July of 1975 and came back to the farm in December of 1976, upon graduation from college. Both are also long time employees of Roscoe ISD, where he serves as superintendent and she serves as the counselor. Roddy was born in 1980 and also came back to the farming operation upon graduation from Texas A&M in 2004. He also serves as assistant principal at Sweetwater High School. His sister, Kari Su, was born in 1986 and is currently in graduate school at The University of Houston.
While primarily a cotton and wheat farming operation; Alexander Ag has a long history in the production cattle business. In October of 2006, the operation ventured into the Registered Red Angus business with the purchase of four bred heifers at the annual RA Brown Ranch sale. Since that time, we have chosen to grow slowly but surely, with the emphasis upon quality rather than quantity. Today, we are extremely proud of the strong friendship and business relationship we have developed with the RA Brown Ranch as members of their Bull Cooperative.

Chuck and Christi Miller are raising cows and kids on green pastures in central Missouri. The Millers stock their grass pastures with Simmental, Red Angus and SimAngus females to provide SimAngus bulls to R.A. Brown Ranch. A number of the females on the farm are the result of multiple generation SimAngus breeding and the Red Angus originate largely from the R.A. Brown program. The Simmental genetics originated from Dr. Jerry Lipsey, long-time CEO of the American Simmental Association. Only animals that meet strict disposition, phenotype and EPD benchmarks remain in the herd. The Millers use artificial insemination and purchase the best possible clean-up bulls for their breeding program from ranches such as Gibbs Farms, Deiter Brothers and Little Bitterroot Ranch.
Away from the farm, Chuck is a vocational agriculture teacher and FFA advisor. Christi is communications specialist at the local electric cooperative and a freelance writer. Their children, Abby and Ethan, love school, fishing and showing their animals at the county fair.
