Older Red Angus Bulls ...what you really need! All the good Angus traits and “no darn trouble”. Our Red Angus are developed from mainstream maternal lineage. We’ve stared birthweight in the eye and backed it down. Our Red Angus herd was established in the 60’s, we are one of Canada’s Pioneer Breeders. Our bulls have introduced the red influence to countless commercial operations across the country. Our disciplined program has for 38 years never compromised birthweight, thriftiness or vigor. We’ve bred moderate frames, good cow traits, easy keeping and light to moderate birthweights into each and every bull we sell. Ours are reliable, predictable bulls; ideal for cross breeding with volumes of bulls for heifers and bigger stouter bulls for cows. The offering features more older bulls than anywhere in the country, 100 Fall-born and 2-year-old bulls. Use our red bulls to easily calve heifers and still get a “darn good calf” to sell or keep. Raise your own red angus cross replacements with the good maternal quality our bulls offer. If your cows have too much exotic, use our angus to moderate frame, make ’em easier to feed, and increase carcass quality and feeder demand. Share and benefit from our experience and 38 years of selection, volumes of records, predictable birth weights and performance uniformity. Ranch raised Red Angus that’ll do the job, never complain, and give you no grief. 100 solid bulls, buy one or you can select uniform half brothers in volume. Great red bull value from Canada’s Bull Supplier.

Long yearling sale bulls with volume, thickness but still calving ease... like peas in a pod.
Fall Reds are the answer… They’re bigger, stouter and tougher than the yearlings you’ll buy other places. They’ll breed more cows, (even the big ones) hold their condition, take less management and be less worry and trouble. They’ve been gently and slowly developed on grass, so they last a long time in your herd. They’ll breed circles around a yearling and they’re not the “leftovers” like most 2 year olds you’ll find. They really are the answer. “Perfect Age” bulls - 20-22 months old at breeding time. Why buy yearlings when you can have these at no more money?
Why buy yearlings when you can have these at no more money!
100 Fall-born and 2 yr. olds sell!
We’ve been in this business for years and we’ve learned a few things along the way. most important… you don’t last unless you do right by your customers. We’ve made bull buying a whole lot easier. Our bulls are good quality, all of them, well culled, they’re easy keeping, good looking, durable bulls that sire those “fancy calves the order buyers keep talking about.” Our bulls are older fall and summer born twos (22-26 months when you need them), old enough to be tough and not give trouble. Our bulls can all be left with us till Spring, you don’t want new bulls around till you need them, so let us look after them. Our bulls are all delivered absolutely free in Western Canada and cost shared in the East. Our bulls can be purchased sight unseen, in fact about half always are. We help select your bulls and they’re guaranteed to be what you want… “true satisfaction on arrival .” Our customers trust and confidence in us make it all possible. Our bulls are affordable – 75% sell from $1500 to $3500, almost half bring about $2500 and all sell to solid commercial cattlemen. Our bulls are guaranteed like no others… you’ll have a bull to breed your cows no matter what… hard to get better than that! As sale time approaches, you can view all our bulls on video on our website or we’ll send you your very own DVD and catalogue and you can show the neighbors. In fact, it’s probably easier and simpler to buy our bulls than buying bulls locally. You get great service the best guarantee, lots of selection and your calves will be sired by nationally known bulls. It all helps to get them sold!

Thick “Super Baldies” ...Red Angus x Simmental Bulls We’ve harnessed the best of both breeds. Incredibly beefy, thick bulls, they pack awesome payweight on disciplined moderate frames. They have all the convenience of Red Angus; moderate consistent birthweights (85-95 lbs. almost without exception), “easy fleshing” (they’ll hold their condition in the tough going) and on feed they’re “quick fleshers” with bold hybrid performance (4-5 lb. gains are common place). The Simmental blood gives them that essential “touch of continental muscle” you need today, as well as adding milk and growth to the blend. Our “Super Baldie Bulls” are an industry success story, over nearly 20 years. They add milk and muscle and are “right sized” to give you no calving problems or management nightmares. Best of all, they’ll give you Red Baldie females for replacements you’ll want and need to keep. Too much exotic — they’ll beef ’em up. You can find a few Red Angus X Simmental bulls other places... but what you cannot find is the volume, uniformity, quality, and selection potential available from M.C. Quantock. You can spend a lifetime infusing that blend of Red Angus Simmental or you can do it “one shot” using our Super Baldies. You’ll get beautiful “Angus Type” calves with “muscle and snap.” Your steers will top the market. Your heifers will be the envy of your neighbours.
75 head sell!

A perfect option on Black base cows or Herefords. Blacks with a touch of exotic muscle. growth and milk. All you really need to sell those market-topping Blacks.

Broad topped, deep Herefords ...with haircoats! Established in 1951, our Hereford herd benefits from 60 years of development. Our Hereford bulls are broad topped, deep-sided bulls packed full of natural thickness on moderate frame sizes. Trouble free... “you bet”, our Herefords have been selected for years for good udders you never have to touch, because you don’t have the time and you don’t need the hassle. Use our Hereford bulls to add the good Hereford traits your Dad took for granted. Deep, thick hair coats, easy keepers that’ll get by without the barley bin, and dispositions that make cows a pleasure to handle - not an ordeal. Use Herefords to add British blood to those exotic cows. Our bulls are durable, long living, and tough. You won’t find any “big fat ton bulls” here, but what you will find are bulls that have never seen “hot feed” and pampering. Bulls that will last and last. Rediscover what your dad knew! Herefords work and are a pleasure to own. Bull purebred & papers transferred.
“Our Hereford and H-2 udders are as good as Angus”
25 Bulls sell! All older Falls and two’s
H-2 Bulls... Our H-2’s are a Hereford/Fleckvieh 2-breed composite line. Real beefmakers, loaded maternally but bred to simplify and sustain the Hereford/Semi influence in our customer’s herds. Produced on the home ranch using mid-aged proven Hereford cows and beefy, low set, pigmented Fleckvieh sires; these fall-born and 2 year old bulls really offer something unique. Enough age to breed a lot of cows, solid maternal genetics and bottom line performance. We call them “H-2’s” — they’re hummers. These potent composite bulls are being used on Hereford x Simmental cows, as well as black, and black and red baldie cows with great success. Any way you fit them in your program they’ll make money. These bulls just work so well, they make repeat customers out of everyone who buys one!
Herd bulls like this… moderate size, broad & deep. Durable, Quiet! All Hereford Bulls dehorned!
Hereford Fall Bulls Most herefords are sold as big fat 2 year olds. They’ve spent way too long at the feed bunk. If you’re tired of 2 year olds that are too big, too fat and too narrow or yearlings that are barely big enough, our fall bulls are the answer. Gently and slowly developed on pasture, easy keeping, they’ll hold their condition for life. Our fall bulls, will be 20 - 22 months old at breeding, just the perfect age. They’re mature and will do everything a 2 year old can and a darn sight more than a yearling will and best of all they’ll last and last. They’re the answer to the “Hereford Dilemma”. 25 head sell. All Hereford Bulls dehorned This Year!
25 Bulls sell! Falls and two’s These bulls really work…
…past year’s customers keep coming back for more.
“Super Guppies” ...Red Angus x Gelbvieh Bulls “Super Guppie” bulls are a great crossbreeding option. A blended composite of Gelbvieh and Red Angus. Super Guppies have a little more “exotic muscle” than our Super Baldies but are still built from all maternal cattle. Gelbvieh have the carcass, the early sexual maturity and the growth. The Red Angus blood provides the hair, thriftiness and fleshing ability while moderating birth weight. Use our Gelbvieh X Red Angus bulls as the third option in any crossing program and maximize your hybrid vigor. They’re cowman’s Gelbvieh that will work the big range country and fit your management. Our customers love a little Gelbvieh on the cow side. Our Super Guppie Bulls have really found their stride in the past few years as our customers calve their daughters and recognize how well these bulls fit their crossing programs. “Use ’em and you’ll love ’em!”

40 Bulls Sell! All Falls and two’s
“Chunky” Charolais Bulls... We’re cowmen first and these are cowmen’s bulls. Our objective in Charolais bulls is to provide our customers bulls that maximize the Char cross advantage in feeder calves and minimize any problems. Our bulls are thick bulls but they are still smooth bulls. The bulls have rapid early growth which you need but as two year olds will not be too big. Our Charolais are built for the ranch trade with very moderate birthweights and unquestionable soundness — white bulls that will last and last. We deliver what you asked for: lots of hair, so you can sell those “deep coated, good doin’” tan calves and top the market; good dispositions because we’ve all got families that help; unquestionable soundness, because some other Charolais bulls don’t last; moderate frames because some others get too big. Our Charolais pack lots of muscle, are long bodied, smooth and not real tall. Gently grown out and sold in perfect working condition. Charolais are still the best terminal sire for a British cross cow. Bulls purebred & papers transferred.
Lots of tan colored bulls!

Sight Unseen Purchase Plan Our Buying your bulls is easy… and it’s as close as your phone…
Mac Creech, D.V.M.
I have spent 30 years working with cattlemen across Canada and together we have developed the most successful Sight Unseen Purchase Plan in the country, so successful in fact that it can sell nearly half our bulls some years. I have done it with sincerity and integrity and the utmost respect for the customers needs and budget. We start by discussing your cows, your breeding program, and what you need to get done. When we are comfortable with each other we can work together to get you the right bulls at the right price. While a few people sell a few bulls on the internet, I much prefer to visit with our customers, get to know them, and help them select the right bulls. Our comprehensive catalogue and DVD will give you an accurate impression of the bulls. After the sale I’ll personally deliver your bulls, in most cases. You must be completely satisfied on arrival or you are under no obligation to take them. You pay for them only when they are delivered and satisfactory. Call me anytime to get started but first read our customers’ comments below.
Guarantee... - pretty darn simple -
In the unlikely event you have trouble... rest assured I’ll look after it right away... no hassles or disputes. If you purchase our bulls, you’ll have a bull to breed your cows no matter what happens. We semen test all older bulls and guarantee young bulls to pass at 1 year. Simply put... they’re guaranteed to work or they’ll be replaced. We always have loaners available to help out if needed. If you have a bull down, we’ll meet you halfway anywhere in Western Canada 24 hours a day with a replacement, because when you have trouble and you’ve got cows to breed... you need bulls, not excuses and time wasted. We recommend insurance coverage for breeding or physical injury, which can be purchased sale day.
We sell, and deliver for free, hundreds of bulls all across the west! Here’s what our customers say... “Like how the sale moves along quickly, an impressive selection of bulls. If you can’t find what you need at this sale, you’re not in the cattle business.” – Dale Luckwell, SK “Extremely happy with the bull you chose for us sight unseen.

Something that is often neglected in agriculture.” – L. & R. Cooper, SK “We are very pleased with the H-2 and Super Guppie bulls we bought at the last two sales; and plan to be there this year to buy another.” – JCB Farms, AB “Just got home with my bull, great head, real good feet and legs, clean in the shoulder and thick butt.

Purchase thing, never done it before, I am impressed with the bull and the way you do business.” – R. Milliken, MB “I don’t know what you do in your breeding program, but these bulls all have the same stamp on them. You can see it now in our cows… all the same - the calves are born then grow like hell.” – C. Stahl, Riverview Colony, SK “Very impressed with your sale. The best one I have attended in 30 years of ranching. Quality of cattle was excellent and the sale went smooth and fast I was impressed with the quality of people you have working for you and how well they worked under the stress of the day.” – B.

His calves were not over 75 lbs. and very strong. Very pleased.” – S. Carpani “I’m 100% satisfied with the quality of the bulls I’ve bought with your Sight Unseen system. When taking delivery I’ve always felt I’ve gotten more value than I paid for. Your integrity is appreciated.” – M. Carr, ON “Being able to buy a bull over the phone is great peace of mind and Mac was very easy to talk to and is very knowledgeable about his bulls.

Arnold, SK “Sight Unseen working well for us, as your sale was during our busy calving period. It‘s nice knowing that we had some security from you if the bull didn’t work out for us. He’s done great and all his girls are in calf and on time. Thanks for the bull and service.” – A. & C. Johnson, AB “Bull looked great when delivered in April, after bull development, Mac is always very helpful in finding me the right bull. Very satisfied. You are a pleasure to deal with.” – D. Loewen, BC “I was very satisfied as a first time buyer ‘Sight Unseen’ - you deserve a huge amount of praise for your “Pay in full when delivered and sight unseen policy. Keep up the good work.” – D. Denis, SK “Your sale date and hospitality, your interest in providing good service to your customers, just can’t get any better.” – D. Miskiewicz, MB “I’m really impressed with the bull you suggested. I wanted a long, deep, thick, meaty bull and that’s exactly what I got. I’ve been to a lot of sales in MB this spring and this bull would be a high seller at any of them.” – Jeff Brown, MB “Picked up bull at Paris, ON… never would have known he had a four day truck ride ‘just shining’. Really pleased with our ‘Black Super baldie’… you could land a ‘747’ on his back… he’s got the thickness we’ve been looking for.” – J. & A. Armstrong, ON “Just a short note to say how happy I am with the bulls you sent me. The
quality of the three bulls I’ve seen is very high. I also appreciate the way you have solved the problem I had with the last bull… nice to deal with such a reputable outfit.” – G. Thomas, BC “Received the Hereford bull, he has a good hindquarter, good width, lots of depth and thickness, and a good disposition. He’s what I have been looking for.” – W.

Armstrong, MB “Well satisfied with my Sight Unseen purchase, no problems with him, developing into a smooth bull. Probably better that I would have chosen myself.” – Jim Lobley, AB “This was the first bull we had ever bought Sight Unseen. We were very pleased with your selection for us. We would highly recommend this type of purchase to others.” – Donald Walker, ON “I felt the service we got was excellent. I also felt comfortable with the Sight Unseen program because someone who knew the bulls was helping us make the right purchase.” – Id Potter, AB “Very satisfied with the bull you selected for us. We would also like to thank you for the bull you sent last year after we had bull problems. Your service has been excellent.” – M. Grimm, BC “I must say, I couldn’t have picked a better bull myself, so thanks – calves hit the ground running lots of vigor, the bull passed on his good disposition and conformation.” – G. Gramlich, AB “I think you have an excellent program. As a rancher I find it discouraging when other programs put so much fat on their bulls just to make a buck. I need good bulls to cover some ground and go to work! Your program offers that!” – T. Keys, SK “It’s been a pleasure to work with M.C. Quantock. The bulls, have always worked well and we’ve progressed tremendously using your genetics. We look forward to a great future.” – C. & M. Spilchik, SK “Long yearling (fall) Red Angus bulls are very impressive. They were very active in the pasture and kept their condition well.” – Gervins, MB “I was very happy with my Sight Unseen bull. With seasonal work that I do, bull development - spring delivery works very well. I recommend your bull development program to all my friends.” – D. Teichroeb, BC “I like how quiet the bulls have been that we have bought in the past, have bought Sight Unseen twice now and have not been disappointed.” –H. Nordlund, AB “We just sold some steer calves sired by your bulls and they sold better than last year, the market likes them.” – B. Kielo, SK “Also wanted to tell you what a pleasure it’s been to handle the bulls we bought from you. They’ve obviously been handled a lot and know what a horse is which sure isn’t the case with most bulls we’ve bought over the years. Looking forward to seeing how the calves look!” – J. & L. Gilberg, AB
