More Than a Bull and Female Sale

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who made purchases at the March 2016 Sale.

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.

We are always experimenting with new and different cover crops. The beauty of Crimson Clover this time of year is second to none. This field was seeded last fall after corn silage with tillage radishes, crimson clover and wheat. The radishes were the dominant crop in the fall but since the radishes died during the winter the crimson clover has blossomed!! We are going to try our first no-till tobacco in these fields. ...

A group of Red Angus heifers on ryegrass and crimson clover. It was meant to be a cover crop but since we have been so dry the last few weeks we decided to put up a hotwire and use this forage for our cattle. The heifers seem very happy with our decision. ... See MoreSee Less

RED HILL FARMSGreat point Greg. Washy grass is not good on any animal. Every year, month and day present unique and different challenges for farmers.

Greg BrannI think the dry weather is working to my benefit this spring. Animal performance is better on this drier forage. Not saying more rain wouldn't be great to see. Nice photo
