Our “Roots” Are Planted In The Past:
This is a constant reminder for years to come that we are successful because we are evergreen and true to the covenant to always continue on that path.
It all began when we inherited the passion for cattle from our father, Fred Julius Smith, Sr.

Our Purpose, Our Backbone
Our purpose is to produce and reproduce the Best SimAngus cattle we can for our commercial cattle customers.
To accomplish our purpose, we have adopted a set of principles and values to guide our decisions and answer why we do what we do.
We have diligently selected and bred our cattle with one purpose in mind – to produce SimAngus bulls for the commercial cattleman. To accomplish our purpose, we use genetic engineering found in elite herds around the United States. As a result, we are extremely proud of this functional set of bulls that will be ready to work as soon as you get them home. Within the group, there are bulls that excel at calving ease, maternal traits, growth, and carcass capabilities.
Our plan is to produce superior SimAngus bulls for our customers by genetic engineering using the best genetics found in elite herds in the United States.
FSCR uses all the tools available to advance relevant traits in each animal we breed.
- Proven Sires.
- Genomic DNA testing.
- Measurement of all productive traits.
- Visual appraisal for sound phenotypes for all individuals.
By using economic index values, FSCR will put as much terminal (TI) and maternal (API) excellence in our cattle as we can, without sacrificing soundness, feet and legs, longevity and letting the frame size get too big.
- Efficient in the pasture.
- Have good maternal traits.
- Provide good carcass.
We work closely with strategic partners while using the deep pool of genetic information available today. We employ both A.I. and embryo transplant programs to build and sustain a reputable, proven and preferred SimAngus cattle program.
