C-Squared Show Cattle and Meat

5382 Sykes Road l Nashville NC, 27856 l 252.908.2071

Mike and Mary Strickland purchased their first Holstein show heifers in 1989, and began building the Cedar Isle dairy show herd on his father’s farm. Their children, Cole and Casey, grew up working on the farm and competing at several competitions each year. Cole and Casey started purchasing cows at an early age and then branched out into the beef cow industry by purchasing registered shorthorn cattle. C-Squared Show Cattle was formed from the efforts and work of Cole and Casey. The family has grown with the addition of Cole’s wife, Casey, and Casey’s husband, Brandon and one grandchild Dawson. The family now owns a herd of 40 cattle, a mix of dairy and beef breeds, farms 150 acres of hay, and sells meat by the cut.

Braswell Family Farms

104 East Cross Street, Nashville NC l l 252.459.2143

In 1943, Joe and E.B. Braswell purchased Boddie Mill and began producing corn meal. Due to a growing need for livestock feed in the area, Joe E.B. and E.G.’s sons, Gene and Ronald purchased a feel mill in downtown Nashville. Gene and Ronald also began raising pullets, eventually leading to the creation of the egg side of the company and the investment into Eggland’s Best franchise. Today, Braswell Family Farms is one of the largest feed and egg producers in the country. Braswell Family Farms is a fourth-generation family farm that seeks to glorify God while producing the highest quality eggs and feed.
