LINDLEY BRAHMANS 2013
2013 found changes in the day to day operation of Lindley Brahmans. Sara Lindley Allen has assumed the day to day operations of the ranch. Sara is our go to person for sales. Suzanne Lindley continues her involvement from the office. Savannah and Blaine Allen are busy as the Junior Herdsmen. Susan Lindley Perkins is involved in the behind the scene discussions and decisions. Harper Perkins loves the cattle and is growing fast.
Billy Dan and Suzanne Lindley purchased their first three Registered Brahman heifers from E. T. Sparks. From the beginning heifers had to be gentle, big, growthy, and correct to be selected. This first purchase plus additional purchases from Jim Tarrent then J. T. White were the beginnings of LINDLEY BRAHMANS.
Our goal has always been to breed quality Gray Brahman cattle. All cattle are selected for beefiness and gentleness. With the purchase of J. T. White bulls most of the foundation females carry a predominately JT WHITE pedigree.
Starting with the purchase of JD Hudgins bulls in the late 1990 a new dynamic was added to the BL cattle. Herd sires used at Lindley Brahmans still carry the ideal philosophy of growth and correctness.
Our outstanding cow herd is being bred to the best bulls available today.
MORE ABOUT US
Sara Allen and Susan Perkins
Daughters Sara Lindley and Susan Lindley Perkins share their parents' interest in Brahman cattle. They do not remember when Brahman cattle were not part of their lives. Starting as members of the Texas Junior Brahman Association and charter members of the American Junior Brahman Association you might say these two young women have spent a lifetime with Brahman cattle. Its hard to realize they have been active ABBA members for over 35 years.
Many of the top cows at LINDLEY BRAHMANS carry the circle S or the -S- shoulder brands. All of these cattle started as outstanding show cattle Sara and Susan accumulated.
Suzanne works behind the scenes at the ranch keeping our website, doing day to day paperwork and corresponding with buyers.
Savannah, Blaine and Harper
The next third generation at Lindley Brahmans inherited a love of Brahman cattle. Grand daughter Savannah Allen and Grand son Blaine Allen now have started their herds and are branding their calves. Savannah is now a director for AJBA and TJBA. Blaine participates in showing and leadership contest. We have great hopes for Grand daughter Harper. She should be good for Pee Wee Showmanship another year. Look for the cattle shoulder branded half circle S and B, soon to come crescent h. Savannah will teach Harper every thing she needs to know about showing. Blaine says he will help.
We have been honored to have our brand, BL, on the stair wall of the Kleberg
building on the campus of Texas A & M. since 1979.
Hopkins County was one of the first counties to participate in the brandings after
the building was opened.
"Lindleys" have been involved in agriculture and ranching in Hopkins County
since the 1830.
The BRAND on cattle
the true cattleman is striving toward.
Fitter Max Watts, Billy Dan and Suzanne
LINDLEY BRAHMANS are known for their gentle dispositions. "Gentlest in East Texas" has been the ranch motto for the last forty seven years.
Remember the most important information on a cattle pedigree is the Breeders Name.

Record breaking snow in Sulphur Springs 8 1/2 inches in 24 hours.
That's a lot of snow! I could not get in the pastures, too muddy, but the cattle did fine.
