Mark Hohenberger (E-mail Mark)
Mark was born and raised in Ponca City, Oklahoma. He got his start in the cattle business over 30 years ago, working on ranches in Osage County and in local sale barns during high school. He attended Oklahoma State University where he was a member of AGR Fraternity, and graduated with a degree in Animal Science. He spent his college summers working as a pen rider at a feed yard near Guymon, Oklahoma. After college, while employed by a feedyard, he had the opportunity to make a few sales and buy cattle for the yard. It was at this time that he realized that buying and selling was the area of the cattle business that he wanted to pursue.

Since then, he has bought and sold cattle in 23 states and Mexico, owned a ranch in Wyoming, and established many friends and customers over a large area. Mark currently resides with his wife, Tammi, on a ranch West of Ft. Worth, Texas.

Ed Bricker (E-mail Ed)
Native to Arizona, Ed is a second-generation cattleman. His father, Ed Bricker Sr., has been in the cattle industry managing feedyards since the 60's. Ed grew up working in a feedlot in Queen Creek, Arizona, where he began learning the business from the bottom up.

He received a BS degree from Northern Arizona University in 1992, where he played football and was an assistant coach after he graduated. In 1993 he moved to Texas and worked for a large order-buying firm until he joined forces with the Ogle family of Bowie, Texas. At that time, Ed created his own order buying company, trading cattle across the south and west.

Ed is married to Manda, and they have one daughter, Gracie.
