About Myra Neal Morrison Myra Neal Morrison grew up in Washington, D.C. with her parents Dr. Fred W. Morrison and Emma Neal Morrison.
Her love for animals began as a child with her participation in horse shows and trips to her grandfather's farm in Scotland County, NC . Myra graduated high school from National Cathedral School . She attended North Carolina Women's College in Greensboro, currently known as UNC-Greensboro , for two years. She finished her undergraduate degree, 2 years of law school, and a year of graduate business at UNC-Chapel Hill . During this same time, Myra attended agricultural courses at NC State University in Raleigh, NC, which helped her with her future farming career.
Myra is active in several farming organizations. She is an Area 12 Director for the American Brahman Breeders Association . Myra is a director with the North Carolina Simmental Association and an active member of the American Simmental Association . Myra was president of the Carolinas Brahman Breeders Association in 1999-2001 and continues as an active member. She also served as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors for Cabarrus County Soil and Water Conservation District for several years.
Myra is the mother of three daughters Trish, Sandy and Shirley, and the proud grandmother of Dane, Alexander, Morgan, Owen, Nicolas, Jaden and Mayah. She spends most of her time with field work and taking care of the cattle. What free time she has is spent with her grandchildren and working on her computer. She has built her own database program as well as spreadsheets to track her cattle and update calving, vaccinating and breeding information. She is an avid collector of orchids and has three very spoiled shih-tzu's named Cookie, Pidge-Pooh and Bodie.

Myra Neal Morrison delivers feed via tractor at her Rockwell, NC cattle farm.
Thanks to record-breaking rainfall in North Carolina this year, hay is so abundant that Morrison is now putting bales out on the pasture. But several previous years of drought led her to revise her water resources. ¡°Until the summer of 2002, I was using a creek and just had one well,¡± she said. ¡°Then I got worried and added another well.¡± Both wells use electric pumps and most herds have automatic waterers available at all times. Morrison¡¯s certified and accredited herd is tested for brucellosis and TB annually. Vaccinations and worming are done at the same time. ¡°Nobody quite understands why I don¡¯t need to do it (worming) twice, but I don¡¯t, ¡° Morrison said. ¡°A lot is the condition of the cattle, small pastures and when I worm at test time in June, it cleans all the pastures out.¡± She uses Ivomec and Eprinex from Merck. Morrison breeds year-round, using her three bulls, which she prefers, as well as artificial insemination. Maintaining her own tank, she purchases serum from ABS, Select Sires and at sales. ¡°(With these sources) you don¡¯t often get anything you don¡¯t want,¡± she said. ¡°I breed these cows to the best bulls in the AI books. For the Brahman, I try to get the best semen I can afford. Generally, I buy at sales where I know the people and can get them to sign the certificate.¡± ¡°With the Simmental cattle, the traits are all there. They¡¯ve got good disposition, good feet, good backs; it¡¯s all there, ¡° Morrison said. ¡°(With) the newer Simmentals, the solid reds and solid blacks, the disposition kind of (got) knocked out. I prefer the red and whites. I look for good growth, not excellent birth weight. But my half bloods can be 120 to130 pounds at birth. The Simmentals run 80 to100 pounds and the Brahman 70 to 85 and here I get these 130-pound calves due to cross breeding. ¡° A disadvantage of the half bloods is their disposition, Morrison said. ¡°They will eat you for breakfast, ¡° she said, adding that they¡¯re not wanted at stockyards. But she solved that problem, finding that she can feed them out in 15 months and sell them herself.
Morrison began computer-based recordkeeping in 1987. Today she uses Microsoft Excel and Access databases she developed herself to track complete herd records, including vaccinations, breeding and tag numbers. She is on the Board of the NC Simmental Association and is one of the few Easterners on the American Brahman Breeders Association Board. ¡°It¡¯s rare for Easterners to run since the meetings are out West,¡± she said. ¡°My attitude is why I made it (in the cattle business),¡± Morrison said.
