T-Bone Angus, Brunswick, Nebraska is a registered Angus and farming operation. Since its conception, we have always believed in a sound, honest cow herd that utilizes grass and crop residue to keep feed costs in check.
Our cows are managed very similar to the commercial operations in the area, with the exception of a slightly earlier calving season. The heifers and A.I. cows begin calving in early February, with the majority of calves coming in March. The first calf heifers are calved close the house where they can be managed closely. The majority of our cows are calved in quarter section fields allowing them to graze throughout the year. This management approach reinforces our dedication to cattle that can hold their condition, mother a calf, and breed back with sensible supplementation. Problem free cattle that have quiet dispositions, calve unassisted, and add value to all segments of beef production is our priority at T-Bone Angus!
We appreciate your interest in our program. It is our hope that the overall investment that is put into our cattle will increase the profitability of commercial and purebred cattlemen alike. Feel free to contact us with any questions or stop by the farm to view the cattle.
The Brookhouser family has been raising Registered Angus cattle for nearly 70 years! Hugh Brookhouser started the legacy of raising Registered Angus in 1954.
Mark and Colleen Brookhouser returned to the operation in 1979 after graduating from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with a degree in agronomy and ag economics. Mark began artificial insemination in the cowherd in the early 1990s and began carcass testing in the mid 1990s.
Mark and Colleen have three children, Andrea, Ashley, and Alex.
Ann, Benjamin, Averee, and Langston Small live in Nashville, Tennessee. Ashley, Jim, and Otto Wieland live in Norfolk, NE.
Alex and Mary Brookhouser have been involved with T-Bone Angus since 2009, after graduating from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with an Animal Science degree. Alex has always been passionate about raising cattle and has contributed to the operation in a variety of ways. Since Alex’s return to the ranch, he has implemented an embryo transfer program, rotational grazing, and managed marketing. Mary stays at home with our three children Camryn, Kendall, and Carson.
