Gypsies On Parade

Volume 11 - Number 3


Mark Miller is making his move beyond the spotlights and into the cattle business. Dirt Road Farms cane in existence with the purchase of their first cow, TRM Miss tomorrow 0144, at Dixieland Delight X. in May of 1993. In a relatively short period of time Dirt Road Farms has learned a great deal and made a lot of progress. One of the goals for Dirt Road Farms is to develop their own identity in the Polled Hereford industry through a selective breeding program.

Sawyer Brown

Preforms For Cattle Sale Attendees

The very first Dirt Road farms cattle sale was held October 4th in Frankin, Tennessee. After the sale everyone was treated to dinner and a concert by Sawyer Brown Mark and his brother Frank are co-owners of the family-run cattle operation. The sale will become an annual event.

The main part of the new cattle barn is fully equipped with pluming, electricity, heating and cooling. Next summer construction will resume in order to finish a second story apartment. Long term plans include using the building as a indoor facility for a summer youth camp. There are also tentative plans to host the 1997 Sawyer Brown Fan Club Breakfast at the new barn...more details to come.

When Dirt Road Farms first entered the cattle business in 1993, they purchased livestock from the Tennessee River Ranch owned by Randy Owen of Alabama fame.
