TX Enterprises - February's Featured Producer

Congratulations to Charley and Amy Thomas' TX Enterprises for being Cowbuyer.com featured producer for February Featured Producer. Charley and Amy operate a cattle and grain operation in Winston Salem, NC. They also have breed and work Red & Blue Heelers on their operation. They had a new litter of puppies born in January. Below is more information about their operation. Also check out their website at http://www.showsteers.com/TX%20Enterprises/index.htm and make sure you tell them you saw them on WWW.COWBUYER.COM!

TX Enterprises is a cattle and grain operation. The cattle segment is comprised mainly of commercial cattle. We utilize a cross of Red Simmental and Red Angus. Some of the better halfbloods are mated to Shorthorn for show calves. We do have a handful of quality registered Simmentals and Red Angus. At TX Enterprises we strive for the usual efficiency traits but with an extra focus on disposition and style. Bad tempered cattle are not tolerated and will not be sold to other breeders or youth exhibitors. The registered cows are run with the commercial with the same minimal inputs. The greatest majority of the calves produced are marketed off the farm. Some of these going for breeding stock while others are junior projects. All the steers are finished out in feedlot for freezer beef. The only exception are those individuals lucky enough to be selected for show steers. As a sideline we have bred and trained “real farm” working cattle dogs. Our dogs have made it in many states across the nation, with one of our more popular dogs being at Silvertowne Farms in Indiana. Another addition which has seemed to mesh very well with the other operations is our flock of free range chickens. We utilize Brahmas for their durability and docile nature. The eggs are marketed locally. Unexpectedly this flock of chickens adopted a fledgling turkey last summer that has now taken up permanent residence.
Again Congrats to TX Enterprises. Whether you are looking for show steers and heifers, replacement females, bulls or freezer beef, TX Enterprises has something for you.
