In the 1960s, Raymond McNutt started milking a few registered Jersey cows and sold fresh milk by the gallon to the public, as well as the West Texas Milk Producers. Raymond’s sons, Gary and Guy, were active in the National FFA Organization and 4-H projects, showing cattle all over the United States. They attended Tarleton State University, worked on several dairies in Erath County while in school and graduated with bachelor’s degrees in agriculture. In 1976, McNutt Bros. Dairy was started when Gary and Guy leased a flat-barn dairy in Dublin, Texas, and milked 27 Jersey cows.
