Meet the Fosters.....
The Foster family began traveling across the country purchasing well-bred registered Texas Longhorns. Before long, they had acquired a herd of over 200 head of high-end, loud colored, extreme horned cattle. The Fosters have been buying, raising and selling these historic cattle for the past 12 years. They still currently run a modest herd and are active members of the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association.
With gentle disposition always priority for young Montana’s safety, our Shorthorn cattle always exceeded expectations. Soon Jim found himself face to face with families wanting to buy cattle from this lineage. At the time the Foster’s were simply raising show prospects for their own children. With not enough calves to supply the demand, Jim started utilizing recipient cows loaded with eggs from these proven show cattle. Our donor program began.
Throughout this cattle venture Jim and Jill worked in the western apparel industry. Jim worked first as a boot company sales rep then as Resistol Hat sales rep for Texas. Jill worked several years for Cowboys & Indians Magazine. In 2002, Jim learned that a struggling livestock show supply company was for sale. By 2003, Jim bought Hamm’s Show Supply and began turning the business around. During this period of growth, Jim started designing lamb stands, cattle trim chutes and stall setups with Darryl Anderson of Team Pride for use in the show industry. A business and personal relationship started. Jim eventually sold Hamm’s Show Supply several years later but the friendship with Darryl continued to develop.
Jim and Darryl decided to combine their mutual interest in cattle by jumping into the Shorthorn breed with a splash. With the purchase of the highly sought after bull SULL GNCC Final Solution their relationship has evolved into the partnership of
