Brett Ranch


Brett Ranch is home to avid hunters and Longhorn enthusiasts. ​They​'ve owned their ranch since 1998 ​with the original purpose of ​providing a sanctuary to grow extremely large whitetail deer​ which they are still achieving today.

​They started breeding Longhorns in early 2009​ and have been building an elite breeding program based on the genetics of WS Jamakizm and his progeny since. ​With a solid foundation of female longhorns to breed and cross with our genetic lines​, it is ​their great hope and inspiration to create consistency and predictability in ​their breeding.

Hired Hand worked with ​​Brett Ranch to enhance their website through responsive design and functionality. Responsive design optimizes the content so site visitors get the same experience seamlessly across all platforms. Mobile users now make up over 50% of total website viewers and research shows that those users do not enjoy engaging with designs or content that isn't easy for them to navigate. Updating your Hired Hand powered website to a responsive design today will increase your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and give your audience a higher quality experience.

Cobblestone Farm was purchased in 1997 to preserve the prominent wetlands and forest of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. ​​It began with a search for a breed that was old world, pure and undisturbed by the centuries of mass production and after researching several different cattle breeds, that search came to an end with the discovery of the Highland cattle. ​Their herd base, which started in 1999, was built for quality breeding stock that has the ability to produce an excellent carcass​ and ​that herd still lives at Cobblestone today and are still producing excellent calves that excel in the ring​.
