Welcome to Birdsong Farms
  Birdsong Farms is owned by Stephen and Martha Vogelsang. We raise performance Quarter Horses and Brangus cattle while preserving and managing our wildlife population.  Why Birdsong?  The name Vogelsang actually means “Birdsong” in German - my dad was often referred to as “Birdsong” in his work circles.  The V4 was the brand originally registered in Milam County by the Vogelsang brothers around 1880.  They moved to Milam County after originally settling in Industry, TX in Austin County upon arrival from Germany in 1850. They both served in and survived the Civil War before getting into the mercantile business in Welcome, TX and then into farming and ranching.

 
  Stephen spent his high school years in Columbus, Texas where he developed an interest in the livestock business before attending Texas A&M University.  Martha’s experience in agriculture is even more extensive as she was raised on a dairy and tobacco farm in North Carolina.  Her interests and experiences with horses go back to a very young age.  Martha’s judging experiences both in 4-H/FFA and at Texas A&M helped lay the foundation for what Birdsong Farms seeks to produce in our horses and cattle.  Animals that have the performance pedigrees while being attractive and having the conformation and strength to get the desired job done are the ultimate goal of our program. 

Our horse facilities are located south of Hearne where we own and lease approximately 250 acres.  Most of our cattle are maintained on 500+ acres of native pasture in north Milam County.  In the past decade, we have begun to more carefully manage the native White-tail deer population and have seen a consistent increase in both numbers and quality.  Lastly, Birdsong Farms has some acreage devoted to crops such as wheat, corn, sorghum and cotton.
