Flat Creek Farms is located on the rolling hills of a 200-acre farm in the Flat Creek Community of Shelbyville TN and is managed and operated by Shawn Graham and Mike Hammers. Our operation is led by faith, backed by integrity and committed to customer service. The Red Angus Association of America is a thriving and growing organization and we are dedicated to the continued success of the breed.
Built on a foundation of passion and commitment our seed stock operation consists of just under 100 Registered Red Angus females purchased in 2015 as bred heifers. These young dams are sound phenotypically/genetically correct group with genealogy from Beiber, Leachman, Ludvigson, Bull Hill, Buffalo Creek, Montvue, RA Brown and Damar. Here at Flat Creek Farms our mission is to consistently produce high maternal Red Angus cattle with rapid growth, performance, unsurpassed carcass traits, structural soundness and eye appeal.
Our breeding program is relatively simple - use only the most proven AI sires that will add performance and pounds without sacrificing calving ease and maternal traits, We keep in mind our customers want to like what they are looking at and always strive for the correct phenotype. We firmly believe that will always be a significant ingredient in a cow-calf operation’s success.
Our goal is to consistently produce a uniform product that will fit our commercial customer’s needs and offer genetics that are desired by other purebred breeding programs. Our AI/ET program is overseen by reproductive specialist Dr. Christy Young. We utilize the ultramodern tools available for cattle DNA testing. Highly accurate genomic enhanced EPD’s assist seedstock selection and accelerate breed improvement.
Our commitment to a healthy herd is strictly monitored and overseen by Dr. Margie Carter DVM and her staff at Fayetteville Animal Clinic, PC. We pride ourselves with having an intense “hands on herd management” program and the docility of our entire herd is proof.
For the Red Angus Juniors and 4-Hers, we offer halter broken calves that will be extremely competitive in the show arena.
