Company founder, Lee Little, named Bar-Z in honor of his grandfather, J.V. Gates and his distinctive Barzee Brahman Bulls. Mr. Gates was a south Texas rancher who attacked a critical problem with the development and breeding of the Brahman Bull—its aggressiveness. His insight and careful dedication allowed him to breed a “Naturally Gentle Brahman,” an animal never before seen in the cattle industry. Today, the Bar-Z brand continues to stand for innovation, resourcefulness and perseverance.
