March/April 2021 Sire Edition

resides in a small town nestled deep in the Piney Woods of East Texas. Being raised in Groveton, TX on his families 5th generation farm, the rural area definitely keeps this academically smart young man on his toes. Not because of the population size, but more less, the rural lifestyle that sets him apart from others. “Your family name is all you have in this small community” he says. Growing up, my Grandfather has always said “a firm hand shake is your contract and manners and respect are free. Look a person in the eyes when talking and listening to them. Value your name and don’t let negativity in the world bring you down.” Cole plays a HUGE integral part of the Texas 4-H and currently serves as the Trinity County 4-H President, but he set his eyes on the bigger 4-H picture and ran for District 5 4-H President and was elected to serve the 2020-2021 fiscal year. Not only does he organize and schedule events and meetings within his County

and District 5 (which is 22 total combined counties in Texas), he also manages his time as a Texas State Livestock Ambassador for the past two years, Texas Ag Advocacy Delegate, and State 4-H State Council Member. Cole collaborates with others in the Livestock Industry on topics such as animal husbandry, laws, livestock breeds, genetics, showmanship, livestock shows, agriculture politics and advocates for agriculture every chance he gets. He hosts showmanship clinics, leads other 4-H meetings and serves as a “Special Guest” more times than he can count. He recently had the honor of giving the Pledge of Allegiance for the newly elected State Board of Education member Audrey Young in his very own Trinity County Courthouse. Nonetheless, at the end of the day, showing heifers is his pure passion and joy. He uses his prior knowledge both in and out of the ring to help others, but he also stays humble and grounded as his wins add up. Cole started showing

Limousin cattle at the age of 8 years old with “Sadie” and has continued to pride himself in showing the breed that first brought him success and continues to do so. As his own herd as grown, he enjoys watching those heifers’ offspring be successful in the ring too. Sadie has also raised every Grand Champion Steer that Cole and his brother, Jack Cutter, have shown at their local county fair. He is the only Junior Exhibitor in Texas that has won back-to- back Supreme Continental Heifer at Heart of Texas with two different breeds as well as back-to-back Rodeo Austin Supreme Heifer and the next year with Reserve Supreme Heifer. He took honors as he won Limousin Junior Nationals Cow/Calf pair, Junior Nationals Futurity Reserve Champion, TAMU Saddle and Sirloin Supreme Heifer and two weeks later was named North Texas State Fair Supreme Heifer with a heifer named “Fergie”. She was the most spectacular female (bred & raised by Super C Limousin in Kansas) and transitioned into the best cow prospect any Breeder could ask for! Cole has won Breed
