The family farm was started in 1910 when my great grandpa William Nowak bought property along the Brazos River Bottom just south of Sealy, Texas. Throughout my life, I loved the weekends spent on the farm camping and fishing. I had always dreamed of owning some cattle and being able to continue to enjoy the country life with my children.

In 2006, my dreams became a reality. I started taking agriculture classes and looking into which breed of cattle I wanted to raise. I decided on registered cattle because I wanted to produce a product I could be proud of. I wanted to know where the cattle originated and the bloodline. I wanted cattle that would produce quality meat and be able to handle the Texas coastal climate. I found the Red Brangus breed. I did my research and learned about EPD’s. I studied cattle at local shows.

My wife Toni and I bought our first bred heifer in the 2006 CX Advantage sale and our second heifer in the 2007 Genetic Edge sale. My Aunt Billie Jean Nowak and mother Joann followed up at the Sureway Stock Farms’ dispersal sale buying four more for our herd. We have started to artificially inseminate (A.I.) the cattle to a top Red Brangus Bull and are eagerly awaiting the outcome.

For the new cattleman, I can say I feel it is a worthwhile experience and the International Red Brangus Organization has welcomed me and my family with friendship and encouragement. It takes a lot of time and patience to own registered cattle, but you will produce a product you can be proud to put your brand on.
