Offering 40 Red Angus, Simmental and SimAngus (Red & Black) Bulls

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 Jones’ 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 Farms’ 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 Ty’s market lambs.

182W. This cow is the dam of our leading herdsire, Red Hill T189 Medal 176A. The 176A calves are rising stars here at Red Hill. This cow is a powerhouse.

Weaning Day at the Dogwood Farm.We were extremely pleased with the weights of the calves and awesome condition of the calves. No creep. Grass only. We pulled our spring bull calves and turned the heifers back to graze with their dams. It was a fun time collecting the weights. ... See MoreSee Less

Pictured is our sorghum for silage. While most corn in the area has dried up this sorghum is just now taking off. This is a dwarf variety and you can see from the close up picture it has short internodes between the leaves. We really enjoy growing the sorghum and the feed is excellent. This variety is Alta Seeds 7401. We have been pleased with the yield and quality of this feed. We plant it in 30 inch rows and plant about 8 pounds per acre. We direct chop just like we were chopping corn.Listed below are AGRONOMIC ADVANTAGES of growing Sorghum.

Yields similar to corn silage
30% less nutrient requirements than corn silage
30% less water requirements than corn silage
Productive on marginal soils
Drought and heat tolerant, won't shut down until 105 degrees
Later planting with similar tonnages as corn silage
Minimal mycotoxin concerns
No root worm or corn borer concerns
Reduce soil phosphorus loads
Less seed cost per acre than corn

The yearling bulls enjoying another day of strip grazing. They have grazed their way back close to the coral for Monday's yearling data collection. We got 0.4 tenths of rain yesterday evening. After 20 inches in six weeks we had almost four weeks of dry weather. Thankful for each drop. Each drop of rain this time of year extends our grazing season into the fall/winter. ...
