Red Hill Farms

“Where A Bull Is More Than A Bull”

Red Hill Farms provides leading Red Angus & Simmental genetics plus herd management support services to improve your profitability

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.

Red Hill Farms is a family farm that consists of 450 Red Angus, Simmental, SimAngus, and Angus cows, 150 acres of burley tobacco, 100 purebred sows, and row crops that support the livestock enterprises. The cattle operation utilizes artificial insemination, embryo transfer, extensive performance records and DNA analysis to produce bulls and females for the annual sale held the third Saturday in March. The Jonesโ€™ swine operation provides breeding stock to customers across the United States and in foreign countries. Burley tobacco is a traditional Kentucky/Tennessee crop that adds diversity to Red Hill Farms. The Jones family enjoys sharing the tobacco experience with visitors unfamiliar with this specialty crop.

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.

Red Hill Farmsโ€™ mission is to be good stewards of the land, promote excellent husbandry practices and treat animals with respect, give back to the community, and provide superior genetic products to increase customer profitability and enhance consumer appeal of U.S. beef and pork.

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 Tyโ€™s market lambs.

Red Hill 84S Julian 220C. This powerhouse was one of our top selling bulls in our Spring 2017 sale going to Johnny R. Rogers, Sharon Bass Rogers, Ronnie Holman, and Travis Holman. We are thankful to have cows bred to him for fall 2017 and spring 2018 calves. 220C is the stoutest, thickest of the four tremendous flush brothers that sold last spring. He represents the 84S/Nice n Easy cross very well. We look for him to do great things for his new owners in NC and we will continue to use him in the Red Hill Program. Top 1% Herdbuilder Index from our wonderful Barmaid cow family. 220C is on display here at Red Hill till October when he heads to NC. Stop by and see this beast!! ... See MoreSee Less

Gordon F. JonesThis 220C represents so many positives of Red Hill cattle, and he is linebred to our best Beckton cow, M554.

Red Hill 190Z Julian 271B. 271B is co-owned with GENEX Beef. His cow family has done a great job at Red Hill. 271B came home from Genex in April and ran for 50 days with 45 cows. He got the cows bred and gained weight doing so. Also pictured is 271B's grandam, 204X. This BUF CRK Nice and Easy T189 daughter is a model cow in our system. We are closely watching her yearling bull for potential use as a Red Hill herdsire. We have had several heifers calve to 271B during the last week and they just slip out as the data would indicate. If you like calving ease, easy fleshing and maternal traits contact your GENEX Beef rep today. Beau Ochsner, Cody Sankey, Sarah Lassle Thorson

We had the best crop of tobacco we have raised in many years until Harvey. Over 8 inches of rain and lots of wind has sure turned this crop into a disappointment. We have lots of wind damage and 10 acres that is standing up pretty with this nasty mud on the leaves 3-4 feet up the stalk. Thankfully we had no injuries and no property damage but just an empty feeling of dreaming of what could of been....

Bob VantreaseThe old saying "that's farming". When I was still in high school, in the 50's in TN, had the same thing happen. Had champion tobacco at county fair, the rest rotted in the field, due to heavy rain. I feel bad for y'all. Good thing you are so diversified. Gordon, Dr. Jones was my roommate at UT. What a great man.

Chuck PruittI've seen a lot of tobacco blown down. I know this is disappointing. Hang in there.

We are very busy at Red Hill. We continue full steam ahead with silage chopping and tobacco harvest. We are getting into full swing calving (6-10 new babies daily). Today is picture day for some herd bulls. Next Monday is the big yearling data collection day. After the yearling data is collected we will start to put together our list and info of bulls for our fall sale. Throw in a lamb show on Sunday and Red Angus Convention in Colorado Springs next week and may we say our world is spinning. Did we mention sows to wean and breed, too? If we did not love it we would not do it. ... See MoreSee Less

Today was spring bull work day. Some got re-tagged with permanent ID and other got castrated. All got vaccinated. We have studied this group for months and made our final decisions on which ones would be developed for our March 2018 sale. We are excited about this group. Stop by and see them. ...
