Family Farm

sale day at red hill farms

Bart, Sarah, & Ty Jones operate Red Hill Farms, a 7th generation family farm on the rolling hills of northern middle Tennessee and south central Kentucky. With the original farm purchased by Bart’s great-great-great-grandmother in the late 1860’s, the family has tilled the land with pride and raised quality livestock for several generations.

Both Sarah and Bart are deeply-rooted in agriculture. Sarah was reared on a 4th generation dairy farm and was active in 4-H and FFA activities. She graduated from Western Kentucky University with a degree in accounting and is a Certified Public Accountant. Sarah manages financial records, cattle records, advertising, and marketing in addition to rolling the hay and AI breeding the cows. Bart grew up in the purebred swine seedstock industry, and he was an active 4-H swine project participant. When he graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1996, Bart came back to the family farm to raise pigs. He quickly learned that diversification would make the farm more profitable. Today, the farm produces cattle, tobacco, hogs, corn, soybeans, and a variety of hay and silage crops. Bart manages the day-to-day farming operation and computerized swine records.

Bart, Sarah and Ty appreciate farm life and cherish the friendships developed in agriculture. They also take time to enjoy house boating, waterskiing and exhibiting Ty’s market lambs.

AND THE WINNERS ARE... Steve Austin and Michael Short with a guess of 55 patches. The correct number was 57. This was not all of our patches from breeding, but it was a pile that didn't get thrown away... Stay tuned for updates for our upcoming spring bull sale!

FREE REDHILL HAT GIVEWAY... to the person who guesses the closest number of used Estrotect Breeding Indicators patches in the pile in the first photo! Contest ends Friday, December 31, 2021.

It has been a busy month at Red Hill!

Delivering cattle.
Visiting customers and cooperator herds.
Rolling corn stalks.
Building a new swine gestation hoop building.
Feeding growing heifers.
Synchronizing cows and heifers.
Artificial inseminating cows and heifers.
Flushing donor cows.
Transferring embryos into recipients.

A lot must happen in the last six weeks of the year for fall-calving cattle herds - Sarah even bred cows between Christmas breakfast and Christmas dinner!

Bart was able to get away to deliver cattle and visit a few customers, as well as the cooperator herd owned by Sharon and Johnny R. Rogers at Rogers Cattle Company (NC).

Green River Embryo Transfer helped us exceed our expectations as we flushed over 120 viable embryos from 8 donors this fall. This is not an easy feat. For an embryo transfer program to be successful a lot of things must be 'right' - nutrition, herd health, synchronization, donor breeding, recipient heat detection, and more...

And, spring herd calving starts in just a few days...

*** IMPORTANT RED ANGUS NEWS ***

Red Angus Now Eligible for Angus Branded Beef Programs
By Tom Brink, CEO, Red Angus Association of America (12/8/21)

RAAA recently completed negotiations with USDA on the breed’s Live Animals Specification form or GLA Schedule. The result is that, at the request of each brand owner, Red Angus can be included in Angus-labeled branded beef programs. Red Angus is "Angus," and now USDA has officially acknowledged that fact by enabling Red Angus and Red Angus-influenced cattle that meet certain requirements to join black-hided animals in as many Angus brands as decide in favor of their inclusion. Both genotypic and phenotypic qualification criteria are contained in the new GLA Live Animal Specification Schedule.

Red Angus originated from the same Scottish gene pool as black Angus and are therefore genetically Angus. Hence, this change makes logical sense, and will benefit cow-calf producers, cattle feeders, packers and consumers. Red Angus-influenced cattle can now be beneficially accessed to increase the supply of high-quality, Angus beef in many different programs throughout the country. Furthermore, it is a simple process to add Red Angus to existing Angus beef programs. Brand owners simply need to contact USDA and request the inclusion of the RAAA GLA Schedule as part of their program's live animal specs, then make associated minor verbiage changes in their own G-Schedules. RAAA can assist in this process, which in most cases, takes very little time to prepare, and is then followed by a relatively short correspondence period with USDA-AMS.

We are certainly pleased USDA recognizes that Red Angus are genetically Angus and look forward to working with many branded Angus lines in 2022 and beyond. Our goal is to actively support their efforts, both in quality and volume, to help these brands grow and become even more successful.
