Our History

Our Birth

Union Commission Company was founded  in 1993 by Glen ‘Butter’ Crain. Crain began his career in the cattle industry at a very young age, working on the family ranch with his father Philo Crain of Yancey, Texas.

Beginning in 1968, Crain worked for many years in the cattle industry for reputable organizations at the San Antonio Stockyards. In 1993 he purchased his own cattle company and began selling consigned cattle at the San Antonio Stockyards for customers throughout the area.

As the company grew, Crain knew he would eventually want his own Auction facility to sell and buy cattle and provide a local outlet to South Texas ranchers for their livestock needs.
