To all my Beefmaster Partners:
Just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself... A lot of you may know me as half of the Country Music duo Brooks and
Dunn and quite a few of you also know me as a very passionate breeder of Beefmaster Cattle. My partner, Mike
Leatherwood, and I bought our first Beefmasters to my farm "Painted Springs," in Thompson Station, Tennessee, almost ten
years ago, and we have worked hard with some of the best breeders in the business to put together a herd with the kind
of pedigree that shows off the strengths of these amazing cattle. All along, we were looking for a bull that would
complete our dream of having a well-rounded program that was built for the long term.
We have finally found that Bull! His name is Kix's Smith and Wesson and he is the son of four world cup champions. His
maternal genetics are a who's who of the past and present greatest dams in the breed including, Work of Art, Sugar Ann,
Vanna, Madera 1-5/5, Oasis, Sex Life, Sex Appeal, Miss Lee, Adair 6/2, Sugar Pie, and Z267.
He is simply a great performance bull that has excellent phenotype, plus all the great maternal power that anyone would
want in a herd sire!
He is strongly influenced by line breeding from the legendary Adair 6/2 cow that many feel may be the best cow to ever
walk in the breed.
I use the term "Partner" in my intro because I feel all of us committed to excellence in the breed are ultimately
partners in building our herds. Thanks to all of you who have had the confidence to purchase semen and use Kix's Smith
and Wesson in your programs. I look forward to seeing the successful offspring from Kix's Smith and Wesson and your fine
You can't have a hit record without a great song and you can't have great progeny without a great bull - that's what we
are offering you with Kix's Smith and Wesson!
See ya on the road, and don't be surprised if there's a stock trailer behind that tour bus!
