We are located in Crossville, Tennessee atop the Cumberland Plateau, 110 miles east of Nashville and 75 miles west of Knoxville on I-40.

Grady Taylor started Shady Bottom Ranch in the mid-eighties. Grady spent 20+ years developing a genetically correct herd of Red Angus cows that anyone would be proud of.

In 2007, the management changed, but not the purpose. Our goal is produce a product that true cowmen can trust and depend upon. We are presently breeding over 200 cows in a fall and spring group.

Our herd genealogy is consistent with many major producers. Our herd bulls are household names in the Red Angus industry; names such as Chateau, Major League, Becton, Julian, Lancer, Romeo Enterprise and Merger. Our cow genealogy goes back to a lot of programs including Leachman, Buffalo Creek, Ludvigson, MontVue, G squared, Whitley, Bull Hill, Bootjack and others.

Our performance figures are numbers that we would match with anyone’s.  Give us a call or come by.  We are always glad to talk cattle.


30+ Red Angus Bulls Are Currently Available via Private Treaty. Please contact Jake Beaty for more information!
