Dixieland Delight Red, White, and Black Angus and Hereford Sale
|~ History of the Ranch ~|
and Angus production located in Fort Payne,
Our cattle production started from land acquired
from many of Randy Owen's relatives and friends of
his family. The name of our production, Tennessee
River Music Inc., was named after the first number
one single, written for the group Alabama. The
Tennessee River was an integral part of Randy's
childhood activities, especially trips with his father
buying and selling cattle in Chattanooga, TN
and Scottsboro, AL, at FIRST MONDAY. Randy and
his father talked and dreamed of a
SEEDSTOCK CATTLE OPERATION like Tennessee
River Music Inc. on the trips they took, when they
were buying and selling commercial cattle. Randy's
grandfathers Joseph Ernest Owen and Henry
Baughton Teague Sr. inspired Randy as a child to be
very interested in livestock. Lots of the acreage, now part of the ranch, was sharecropped and rented by Randy's family for row
crops; where he plowed and worked the fields. Randy was involved in 4H and FFA as a young man. He grew up in the community of
Adamsburg (DeKalb County) working with his sisters, and parents on a small family farm, where the ranch is today.
The first Hereford cattle were purchased in 1981. Tennessee River Music Inc. and Randa have shown many champions including
many SHOW HEIFERS and SHOW BULLS OF THE YEAR, for the Southeast Region. Randa showed the TRM-bred heifer, TRM RRO Phillie
0002, the National Champion Polled Female at the 2001 Junior National Hereford Expo in Billings, MT. In 2008, Randa showed the
National Champion Horned Female, Purple Clover, at the Junior National Hereford Expo in Kansas City, MO. The first Angus cattle
were purchased in the late '80's. The early years of the Angus operation were private treaty bull sales, and the heifers were
retained in the herd. We are excited to start out on a new adventure by combining our Hereford and Angus Production Sales. On May
3, 2014, we will host our first combined sale, “Dixieland Delight: Red, White and Black Angus and Hereford Production Sale” here at
Randy and Kelly are excited to be passing the cattle operation down to their youngest daughter, Randa, to continue Randy's dreams
of a first-rate, classy, SEEDSTOCK OPERATION. Randy and Kelly hope to continue hosting these production sales for a long time, but
the future of the operation is secure and will continue with Randa's youthful excitement. Visitors and prospective buyers are
welcome at the ranch to view the cattle by contacting the office. The owners and the ranch crew thank all the customers
throughout the years. Your interest in the ranch operation is much appreciated! Please feel free to contact us for your next herd
bull or cow prospect. We are located atop Lookout Mountain. The ranch is bordered by scenic Little River Canyon National Preserve.
We are 6 miles from Interstate 59.

► Announcing New Sale Date
► 30th Annual DiXXXieland Delight Hereford Production Sale — May 25, 2013
► Junior Incentive Program
The love of the cattle and the excitement they bring to our hearts keeps us optimistic toward the future. Our goal is pretty simple; to consistently breed good, quality cattle, and treat our customers the way we wish to be treated. Here at TRM, we believe the future of our industry lies within our youth who are interested in livestock. Every year, we strive to challenge ourselves. We decided to start out on a new journey with a new junior incentive program for juniors wishing to show a heifer at the Junior National Hereford Expo. The juniors who are involved today will be the ones responsible for "taking us to the future." So, we want to contribute as much as we can to that cause and we say, "Go Get 'Em!"
Division Champion: $1,000 cash
