Finley Brothers Cattle Co. LLC, began in the early 1990’s as a registered Angus operation with a performance focus. Craig decided to keep a select few cows to serve as the foundation for rebuilding our Angus cattle operation with a focus on strong Geno and Phenotypical females. With that decision, the opportunity to partner with 5K Cattle Co. and the Keaton family came along. The Keaton’s were great customers of Finley Bros. and like-minded with similar goals and objectives. Together, since the initial conversations in 2014, we have grown our herd to over 60 head with some of the Angus breed’s top genetics. FB / 5K cattle are located in a rural community just outside of Anderson, MO. Anderson is in the extreme southwest corner of Missouri, just a few minute drive from either Arkansas or Oklahoma. We are excited about our growing registered Angus herd and look forward to expanding a successful, genetically focused operation.

The Finley family has been part of farming and cattle ranching for several generations. We are pleased to keep that tradition alive with a new Finley Brothers (FB) operation, building with great pride off the brand we established with FB in Oklahoma through superior genotypical and phenotypical traits in our registered Angus cattle.
We look for 2016 to be another expansion year, growing FB into the Southeast, increasing our outstanding herd and spreading the word about registered Angus and the powerful FB genetics to a whole new generation of ranchers. We are excited about continuing the Finley Brothers’ family tradition and look forward to breading outstanding registered Angus cattle for years to come.

The days are long on the farm but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We typically start long before dawn to do chores and then head to our off-farm jobs. Vance is a Loan Officer in the poultry industry for Live Oak Bank and Jennifer is a mixed-animal veterinarian. Callie is a 9th grader at McDonald County High School and is actively involved in 4-H, FFA, Student Council, church, High School Rodeos and cattle showing. Courtney is in the 6th grade and is also busy with her involvement in 4-H, Jr High School rodeos, school activities, church youth group and showing cattle. Rhett is a 3rd grader and he enjoys playing football, 4-H activities and showing cattle. Evenings consist of farm chores, working with cattle and horses, church and school activities, as well as homework and errands. Rodeos and showing cattle consume the remaining “free time”.
