WE WOULD LOVE TO SHARE WITH YOU HOW WE GOT STARTED…
In July of 2017, Hi Point Sales and Marketing was launched by owner and manager, Garrett R. Thomas of the Bryan-College Station area. With a fresh new approach to customer service and livestock marketing, Garrett has successfully taken on the fast-pace changes in the beef industry.
While it’s only the beginning for Hi Point, the experience behind the name is vast and varied. Garrett grew up on a commercial cow calf operation — a few purebred Brahman cows planted the seed for what is presently a rapidly-growing Brangus operation. While the Brangus breed is familiar to Garrett, he has worked with Hereford, Red Angus and most recently, SimAngus, as well. In the fall of 2006, Garrett achieved a lifelong dream — he became a member of the Association of Former Students as a graduate of Texas A&M University. During his years at TAMU, he traveled the country as a member of the National Champion Livestock Judging Team.
Following his time at Texas A&M, Garrett spent time as a ranch manager for a large cowherd in south Texas, as well as a lecturer and graduate assistant at the university level. His disciplined planning, attention to detail and passion for customer service was developed in sales management for a company that provided services nationwide. This experience in sales management ultimately launched Garrett into starting Hi Point Sales and Marketing.
It is not unbeknownst to Garrett that success is built on the back of a strong team which is why he has brought Andrew Conley on board at Hi Point. While Andrew brings a lot of wit to the table, he also brings a wealth of knowledge in terms of resource management, nutrition and reproduction. His experience as the former manager of Blackwater Cattle Co. serves the Hi Point team incredibly well. In addition to his management experience, Andrew has been an auctioneer for nearly twenty years, and he is the professional point man for these services at Hi Point.
Hi Point Sales and Marketing offers a wide range of Agri-Marketing services and is looking forward to servicing you and your operation. We guarantee an honest and unbiased evaluation of your program and your livestock — after all, we understand that a profitable herd begins with a well-executed plan.
