The current Cherokee Sales Co building was built in 1970 by Ray & Imogene Smith and ran successfully for 38 years. Then in 1998, the business was bought by Tim Starks & Randy Patterson. In 2017, attracted by the opportunity to own a successful cattle marketing facility, Jarrid & Patrice Herrmann along with their business partners, Brad & Abby Lewis, purchased Cherokee Sales Co.
The current mission of Cherokee Sales Co is to build a community of customers, buyers and industry affiliates who can work together to improve each other's operations as well as the beef industry as a whole. One of the programs Cherokee Sales Co has created, the Cherokee Certified Program, is the epitome of that mission. The program is based around a vaccination and weaning protocol, verified by Cherokee Sales Co, that allow buyers to have more confidence in buying calves that have a better chance of remaining healthy and therefore allowing the seller to capture the head dollars associated with their extra efforts.
