It's no secret in the Mocksville and Farmington, N.C. communities that if you want to buy the highest quality breed of cattle, want good advice or help for your own breed and herd, all you need to do is contact Doug Williams of L & W Cattle and Whip-O-Will Land and Cattle. He is known across the USA as "The Bull Man" and is well loved and respected as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable men in breeding and showing his Brangus and Charlais cattle.
Williams was presented with the highest honor that the Brangus Association awards last Friday night April 6th in Perry, Georgia at a scheduled meeting and awards banquet. He was presented with the "SBBA (Southeastern Brangus Breeders Association) Award of Excellence." The award is reserved for those who have shown outstanding leadership and for maintaining the highest standard of excellence in service to Brangus breeders, the community and the cattle industry.
Williams is not a Davie County native by any means except "at heart," but has called it home for many years. He was born and raised in Clarksville, Ga. but loves his local community here, neighbors and friends as much as they love him.
Williams has been working around cattle since he was a child and it's truly his gift and passion. In 1993 he was elected "Herdsman of the Year" by IBBA (International Brangus Breeders Association) and has received countless top honors and ribbons for his cattle at shows for many years. His cow and calf won the "Best of Show" in Perry, Ga. last Friday just before he was presented with the SBBA Award of Excellence. Anyone who has ever seen his magnificent cattle, has had an opportunity to sit and talk with him about his work or watch him care for them diligently with so much passion knows he has worked hard to earn and achieve each and every honor and award that he has been blessed with.
Williams says he has always enjoyed working with the best quality show and breed cattle that exists. He's been involved with National Champion Brangus cattle and National Champion Charlois cattle for most of his life.
Williams believes that Brangus cattle are "the best cattle walking" and plans to work with them as long as he lives.
