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.

Walked thru the fall bred heifers this evening. Could not help but grab this pic on my phone. This is the Red Hill kind of female--big bodied, slick hair, fleshing on fescue, moderate in size and very calm. She is Red Hill 204Z Barmaid 227B (RAAA # 1736642). We flushed her dam last fall and hope we get many more like this one. She traces three times to 17P, 5 times to B571 and 3 times to our foundation cow M554. She does all this with excellent EPD percentiles as well--6% Herdbuilder Indes, 11% CED, 25% WW, 10% ME, 12% HPG, 23% CEM, and 12% STAY. Needless to say we are excited about this young female. ...

Today was our first day of setting No Till Tobacco at Red Hill. Thanks to our normal crew and lots of help from TY. Also thanks to the Macon County Conservation District, Robert Knight and Eric Copas for making this day a reality. The tobacco will definitely live and thrive. Just waiting now to see how our weed control holds out. Like it or not our government is forcing this on the farmers. (Could this be socialism or communism??). It does have tremendous potential to improve soil health and make our farming system more sustainable for TY. Also many thanks to Corby Brown for his continued support on the C&M setters. Corby puts in countless hours of effort to make sure we succeed with the C&M setters. We have very high hopes for this new practice. "Those afraid to change will fail." We will be setting again tomorrow and if you are in the area feel free to stop and watch.

RED HILL FARMSFor those that follow our Facebook page, this No till tobacco field is the same field where we posted a picture of crimson clover about six weeks ago. The cover crop was a mixture of tillage radishes, wheat and crimson clover.
