Established in 1938 at 914 E. Academy at a cost of $2000.00, today the Cattleman's Brenham Livestock Co. is the oldest continuously operated livestock commission sales barn in South Central Texas.
Mr. Gus Grabow purchased an additional 27 1/4 acres on Hwy 90. Six weeks later, he built a 35,000 sq. ft. building and yards to accommodate 2000 cattle. At a grand opening in October 1948, the sale barn of 67,000 sq. ft., boasted of air-conditioned sales arena, lobby, office and ultra modern cafe and luxurious cushioned seats for buyers.
In 1951 he purchased an additional 2 acres that fronted the highway, to provide extra parking for customers. The plant provided its own water system. All livestock weighed on tested Toledo Electric Scales. The main building included 50 ton air conditioning units and central heating system. The livestock yards could accommodate 3000 cattle.
Mr. Grabow sold the stockyard in February 1960 to Oscar Bode Jr. Port City Stockyards purchased the property in 1972. Mark & Scottie Schwartz completed the purchase of the stockyards on January 1, 2009.
