The History of Hicks Ranch

A purebred Brangus cattle operation

In 1965, Alton Hicks, Adam's beloved grandfather, laid the foundation for a thriving post and lumber company in Alto, Texas. As a testament to his remarkable legacy, he was also renowned for his exceptional Brahman Cattle, skillfully managing a thriving herd of over 300 cows. Inspired by the admirable work ethic of his grandfather, Alton’s passion and love for beef cattle fueled Adam to join the beef cattle industry.

At age 11, Adam's burning passion for cattle led him to persuade his parents to allow him to leave early from school, eager to accompany his esteemed grandfather to a cattle sale. That day, Adam used his hard-earned money earned from working after school and at his family’s post mill to purchase his very first Registered Brangus female. He would utilize this heifer as a show prospect in 2004, and she would set the foundation for Hicks Ranch.

In 2019, a new chapter unfolded for Hicks Ranch, as Adam's parents, Larry and Cynthia, integrated into the cherished family-operation. With unwavering commitment and profound dedication, Larry and Cynthia assumed vital roles, becoming instrumental pillars in the success of Hicks Ranch, actively contributing to its daily operations.

Today, with unwavering dedication and a steadfast commitment to excellence, Adam has built an impressive herd of 75 registered Brangus cows, additionally overseeing an 85 head commercial operation. Carrying forward the legacy of his grandfather's commitment to excellence, Adam is carving his path in the beef industry, guided by the values instilled by his grandfather.
