Smoky Mountain Cattle Consulting (SMCC) began in 2004 when David Bryant combined his agriculture education, Midwestern agriculture experiences and the needs he saw on his family’s Tennessee farm to create a business model to serve producers. He realized that livestock agriculture in the Southeast needed a dealer of highest quality livestock handling equipment along with an innovative mind for facility design. For 15+ years he has worked steadily in his goal of enhancing livestock agriculture by helping producers thrive via innovation and ongoing support.
In addition to livestock facility design and equipment, David ventured into highest quality seed sales and pasture management in 2012. Helping farmers maximize their pasture renovations and management is a rewarding endeavor.
The SMCC customer list includes private cattle/goat/sheep/equine operations of all sizes, grazing dairies, an elephant sanctuary, vet schools, all the state land grant universities in the Southeast, corporations investing in agriculture, NRCS and custom farm-to-plate producers.
SMCC equipment and David’s design innovations enable producers to more effectively manage not only their livestock, but also land and economic aspects that encompass the entire farm. With our assistance, livestock producers can have less work, more economic return, and the confidence that they are producing a superior product.
SMCC uses real farming experiences because we have the experience of 15 years on our own commercial cow/calf operation to calibrate our understanding of our customers’ needs. If a management practice is not economically feasible or practical, it is not even suggested. Our approach is to customize plans for the goals of the producer with the resources that are already at the farm as much as possible.
One of our goals in assisting animal and land management is to provide the operator with the opportunity to obtain tools for optimum efficiency. Therefore, even though the majority of the products we carry were mostly unavailable in previous years in the Southeastern US, David’s technical expertise took on the task of becoming the Southeast source for the products AND for technical understanding and support for these products. And even now, after 15 years in business, we are not just the longest standing dealer in the Southeast, but also still the highest experienced dealer of many of the products we carry.
