Blair Brothers began as a partnership between Ed and Rich Blair, and has expanded with the addition of Ed's son Chad and Rich's son Britton.
The name of the operation was revived from a partnership that existed from around 1910 through about 1947.
The beginning of Blair Brothers was in the registered Hereford business. The selling of Angus bull started in 1993, when the first 12 bulls were sold. Blair Brothers is now in its 25th year of private treaty sales.
Terry Goehring was the West River extension beef specialist who encouraged Blair Brothers to use AI on its yearling heifers and to select bulls with proven EPD's.
Mike Collinge an ABS representative in Eastern Kansas showed the team how to AI.
Roy Wallace was a great resource and mentor in the late 1990s until his untimely death.
The management strategy at Blair Brothers is that you can have it all, and we believe in under selling and over delivering.
“We started to AI our herd to improve our cowherd, not to sell bulls. Selling bulls has been an offshoot to building the best cowherd we could, and the most profitable fed cattle.”
