Latest Report


All of the cattle listed are cake-broke and easy to handle, NO EXCEPTIONS. We pride ourselves on our ability to handle ALL of our cattle with a minimum of labor and stress. All of our cattle are penned horseback at a walk slow and easy ----usually with just two hands. We routinely feed cake to rotate pastures and monitor health.

Our headquarters is the Tesoro Ranch near Beeville, Texas. We also own ranches in Bee, Duval, McLennan, and Atascosa Counties. We also have cattle operations in Guadalupe, Gonzales, Real, Refugio, and Chambers Counties. All cows are cosmetically dehorned and individually aged and charted by our veterinarians. They are also given a complete health work up to include Ivomec plus worming, lepto-vibrio, 8-way, and tick, fly, & lice control. We also teach any cattle we acquire to come to cake and handle horseback. All calves of age are "worked" to include 8-way, Cynovex-C, Ivomec plus worming, and fly control. We also scoop the horns and ear tag them - no earmarks. All male calves are castrated (knife cut). Whenever possible we also tag each calf with the same number as the mama.

Unless otherwise stated in the description, we own 100% of the cattle listed. We are not brokers by trade. However, we have an extensive network of associates and have the ability to locate cattle that we do not currently have in inventory.

81 Registered Brahman heifers.  All are one iron, one raising, cosmetically dehorned, calfhood vaccinated, gentle horseback, and will run to the feed wagon.  This is our "first weaning", the heifers born March, 2016 through about June, 2016.

Located in the "788" pasture of the "Tony Harkins" ranch near Blanconia, one of our grass leases in Goliad County.

These heifers have been exposed since November 1, 2017 to 214/5 (pictured below), an excellent bull we raised that has a royal pedigree. His Daddy is 210/2, by "42", our great Karu son that we used to such success. His Mama was a first calf heifer, 209/2, ALSO sired by "42".

48 Registered Brahman heifers. This is our "2nd weaning", i. e., heifers born mostly July-November of 2016. All are calfhood vaccinated and cosmetically dehorned. We raised every single one of these and have their registration certificate's in hand. One iron, one raising! Great dispositions, great Hudgins pedigrees! Handle good horseback or afoot, and will get in the truck with you for cubes!

32 Good young Brahman cows with 20 big, fully worked F-1 Braford calves at side. These calves will weigh 375-425 as of November 1, 2017 so there should be lots of Three-in-Ones. The balance should be calving right after the 1st of the year (2018). These are all 2nd and 3rd calf cows, 3-5 year olds in the prime of their lives. Great dispositions, call to cake good and handle excellent horseback.
