East Texas Ranch was started in 1975 by G.B. Chamblee and his son Roy G. Chamblee. Roy's sons and family, Mark and Tracy Chamblee of Huntington, TX and Richard and Allison Chamblee of Houston, TX took over the daily operations in 2005. East Texas Ranch is located in Huntington, TX, which is about 10 miles south of Lufkin and 120 miles northeast of Houston.
East Texas Ranch's first herd bull was Sugarland's Poncrata 57. He was a son of the 1972 National Grand Champion bull, Sugarland's Poncrata 4. This bull produced a large number of our cattle. We currently have 1100 straws of semen from Sugarland's Poncrata 57. Our next herd bulls were MM Rexcrata 783 and E-TEX Rexcrata 93. Both were sons of the great Sugarland's Rexcrata 1 229.
In 1984, Roy G. Chamblee added another great herd sire, +WR MR. SUVA 203, who is currently the #1 brahman bull in the Register of Renown. In the 1980's we were breeding grandaughters of the #2 Brahman bull in the Register of Renown to the #1 Brahman bull in the Register of Renown.
East Texas Ranch was less active in the 1990's. Hereford and Simmental bulls were used on the ranch. As a result, most of the Brahman herd were phased out. In 2004 Roy began breeding Brahman's again and purchased Ban Bar Manso 299/2, a full brother to the 2002 International Reserve Grand Champion bull, BNA "The Deacon" Manso 253. He was used on the ranch until 2009.
In 2007, Mark and Richard began purchasing cattle for their own herd. During the 2007 International Sale at the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo they purchased 5 straws of sexed semen out of MR. V8 730/5 "Tomcat". We currently have one show heifer out of "Tomcat". In 2008 we purchased JDH Lady Juana Manso from the Locke Division during the International sale at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. In 2009 we purchased the future herd bull for East Texas Ranch MR. V8 759/6 "ACE", a son of the great +MR. V8 287/5 "Superstroke". In 2010, Mark and Richard took over ownership when they purchased East Texas Ranch. We are expecting our first calves out of MR. V8 759/6 in 2011 and are currently starting to AI (artificially inseminate) some cattle to +WR MR. SUVA 203 and Sugarland's Esto 66.
