Brandenberger brings a lifetime of knowledge and experience in the beef industry, as well as a valuable skill set in nutrition, production practices, reproduction, genetic selection and mating, marketing, health and forage production.
He and his wife, Susan currently own and operate 96 Cattle Company, a commercial cow/calf operation in Hallettsville, Texas, Brandenberger has a valued resume that includes a degree in animal science from Texas A&M University, where he also competed on the livestock judging team, nine years managing the high-profile Cuarenta Ranch Beefmaster seedstock program at Muldoon, Texas and he was also manager of the Umphry Beefmaster operation in Brackettville, Texas.

“We are excited to add Tommy and his strong cattle industry resume to our registered and commercial programs. We feel his experience, knowledge, reputation within the industry and high character will position us to produce cattle suited for increased potential and profit for us and our customers,” described Corporron.
Corporron Acres was formed in 1973 by Corporron and late wife Dolores and it was a commercial operation until 1994.
