Welcome to JB Show Cattle

In 1835, the penniless and passionate 15-year-old, Thomas O'Connor, left Ireland aboard a ship bound for Texas. O'Connor was driven by the promise of opportunity and prosperity, and dreamt of building a new life in Texas. Many years later, the Braman family continues his legacy by producing high-end purebred seedstock on the land once settled by their ancestor.



Joe, Dee, Madeline and Carlisle Braman operate JB Show Cattle using five principles passed down by their great-great-great-great grandfather, Thomas O’Connor:
Faith, Integrity, Strength, Risk Taking, & Self-Reliance
The Braman girls work the very land on which Thomas settled around Refugio.
