TO THE 17TH ANNUAL MAR MAC BULL SALE
Mar Mac Farms are proud to be members of the Canadian Angus Association for 66 years and 45 years in the Canadian Simmental Association. We are a fourth generation farm where everyone is involved in the day to day operations. We make our living in Agriculture and are very proud of it. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone but we are so thankful to be in Agriculture and enjoy the fresh air and Mother Nature. We are truly blessed to see the strong prices this fall for the calves and strong grain prices. We need to produce top quality food for our consumers as everyone needs food to survive. Thanks to every farmer for taking pride in their product and producing a top quality product. In summer of 2020, Brett married Chantel Colli and we are excited to welcome Chantel into the family. This crop of bull calves since day one has been one to admire for the uniformity and depth of quality in all 3 divisions. As you toured through the pastures admiring what the mother cows had produced you get a sense of pride of the cow herd you have worked hard to establish. As you will see in the footnotes many strong cow families have been established in our herd and work well every year. Our cowherd grazed most of the winter on corn and bale grazing till calving season. Once they are brought home from our other farm, the cows are fed a silage, hay and straw mixture.

When we select a herd sire, the bull’s mother or grandmother is an important part of our selection. Stop by anytime to view the dams of these bulls, we are very proud of the cowherd we have assembled. We have spent long hours researching our herd bull battery and are very proud of the cow bulls and heifer bulls we have added to our program. If they do not work for us they are gone. This year in the Red Angus, Black Angus and Simmental, you will find power bulls for your cows, and heifer bulls for those ease of calving individuals. 98% of our calves are born unassisted and we feel mainly due to our cowherd being fed out in paddocks with lots of exercise, blended rations, and bull selection. We have tried something new this year: At weaning time every mother of a bull calf was weighed. In this years catalog, you will see the calf’s actual Birth weight and what it was as a % of his dam’s weight at weaning. It is assumed that most cows will calve 7% of their body weight. The average of these bulls % is 6.10%. Birth weight: The weights you see are the bull’s actual birth weight. Within 12 hours of birth, our calves are weighed, vaccinated, tagged and tattooed. Let’s remember that we get paid by the pound for our calves and length of body adds pounds. Check out the article in the catalog on Birth Weight and Calving Ease. Mar Mac has tried hard to keep that length and natural thickness in all of their divisions. Weaning weights are the actual weight of the bull taken on September 16.
WE ARE A FOURTH GENERATION FARM WHERE EVERYONE IS INVOLVED IN THE DAY TO DAY OPERATIONS.
We make our living in Agriculture and are very proud of it!
OUR SALE BARN IS HEATED BUT THE BULLS ARE ON DISPLAY OUTSIDE, SO DRESS ACCORDINGLY Our calves are not creep fed in the summer, so we can evaluate the full potential of the cowherd. As you will see in this book, Mar Mac really concentrates on cow families and they must produce to stay here. Two weeks before weaning, a feeder with an oat pellet ration is put in the field to get the bulls used to eating away from their mothers. Then one week before weaning, the low stress quiet weans are put in. These are nose clips that are inserted into the calves to prevent sucking. Calves are returned to the pasture with their mothers for 5 days. At the time of the nose wean insertion, fall booster vaccines are administered. Deworming and parasite control are administered in mid October. Weaning day the bulls are weighed, weaned and brought home. Once home they are started on a TMR ration of corn silage, hay, grain and supplement ration that has been balanced and formulated for longevity and fertility. In early January the bulls were vaccinated with Express 5. NEW IN 2021, AS LONG TIME EXPRESS USERS, WE WERE APPROACHED TO BE PART OF THE EXPRESS VERIFIED PROGRAM VIEW DETAILS ON PAGE 3. MAR MAC HAS ALWAYS TRIED TO BE PROACTIVE AND STAY ON TOP OF THE NEW PROGRAMS THAT WILL BE OF BENEFIT TO OUR BUYERS. WE ARE EXCITED TO BE PART OF THE EXPRESS PROGRAM AND PLEASE REVIEW THE DETAILS AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CONTACT MAR MAC OR REPS LISTED. THE MAR MAC FARMS BULLS (LOT 1- 51) ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT QUALIFY FOR THIS PROGRAM THIS YEAR. These sale bulls have been through a strict culling process with structural soundness, ease of fleshing, and disposition taken into consideration. Any of the bulls in the sale, we would use in our program. We would like to retain the right to collect 200 straws of semen for our own herd use at your convenience and our expense, on any of these sale bulls. At Mar Mac Farms and McRae Land and Livestock: Customer Service is very important; we talk to our buyers at least once during the year to see how the bulls are doing. If you have a problem with your bull, we expect you to call and talk to us. As you see in the catalog we have a larger group of coming 2 year old bulls. These bulls are virgin bulls and developed specifically for this sale. They are not leftovers; this is an added feature if you have a large pasture that an older bull can handle more cows. Brett and Chantel McRae (McRae Land and Livestock) have expanded their program in the Angus and this year are offering a top group of coming 2 year olds. The bulls are all fed in one spot, you will find fatter bulls but these are fed to last. There will a group of open commercial heifers on offer in this sale as lots 62-64. This year we are planning to have a New Generation Female Sale in December 2021, watch for more details. Hosting a sale takes a lot of hard work and we would like to thank our friends and neighbors that have helped make these days so successful over the years. We look forward to visiting with you and discussing our bulls. We would like to thank you for supporting our Beef program.
Welcome to the 2021 edition of the Mar Mac Farms Annual Bull Sale, March 10, at their farm headquarters, fifteen minutes out of Brandon, Manitoba. Good things do not happen by chance, they are planned over years of breeding and supplying high quality breeding stock for the purebred and commercial sector of the livestock industry. It takes a great cow herd, productive and predictable, to be the source of leading herd bull prospects. The 2021 edition of Mar Mac offers the best and strongest group of Red Angus bulls in their history, but in saying that, do not overlook the powerful Black Angus and Simmental bulls that makeup this great offering. The bulls come to you with plenty of performance, yet never overlooking the important traits like calving ease, longevity, and soundness. This lineup is packed full of nuts, guts and hair, essentials for adding value to your calf crop at weaning. We must never forget the maternal factor of a calf crop, since one half of your calf crop is likely female, many of these Mar Mac sired daughters will go back into replacement pastures, so remember, that you are getting sons out of a great cow herd…. sons that are highly maternal. For decades, the McRae and Gordon families have been pioneers and suppliers of top-quality breeding stock. Blair and Lois have also spent many days in a year assisting juniors and working on committees to help improve the livestock industry. A task that has been handed down through their families; volunteerism, which is often taken for granted. As in milk, “the cream” rises to the top! This is the reason that March 10th is an important date on your livestock calendar. Plan to be with them in person or online. Stop by the farm anytime prior the sale and have a preview or give any of the folks a call to discuss the offering and bulls suitable for your breeding intensions … they love to visit about the cattle business. During these times, feel free to call anyone on our T Bar C Team to discuss or purchase any of the cattle offered. We have graded each individual and will be pleased to assist in a professional and confidential manner.
- Chris Poley IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES,
WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO COME ANYTIME AND TOUR THE BULL PEN. The sale will go on Even if we are unable to host many people.

1 : 3 0 P M - M A R C H 1 0 , 2 0 2 1 - M A R M AC FA R M S S A L E B A R N BIRTH WEIGHT AND CALVING EASE
University studies in Wyoming and data from Montana and Colorado lend credence to the following conclusions.
1. The birth weight itself influences calving ease by 65%. 2. The female has 60-70% influence on birth weight of her calf. 3. The bull has 30-40% influence on birth weight of his progeny. 4. Pelvic measurement and angle as well as the shape of the calf has 35-40% influence on calving ease. 5. Length of gestation greatly affects birth weight. A fetus can gain over one pound per day in the last days of gestation. 6. Weather and temperature the last 30 days affect the length of gestation. 7. Size and maturity of the cow influences calving ease. Remember, everything is relative. Increased growth, frame and performance will increase BW. A longer-bodied calf will weigh more. If a calf is expected to have the genetics to growth, it will display this prior to birth as well as after. As a rule of thumb , it takes a calf weighing 85 lbs. at birth to finish at 1200-1250 lb. A cow should easily give birth to a calf weighing 8% of her own body weight. Thus a 1200 lb cow should give birth to a 96 lb calf with ease. Continued selection for light birth weights will ultimately reduce the mature sizes and performance of your cattle.

We understand they are cattle producers but also understand they are grain producers as well. We encourage producers to grow as many on farm ingredients as they can and we will help fill the nutritional gaps that the forages and grains leave. McRae’s do an outstanding job growing quality silages, hay, greenfeeds and grains that help provide protein, energy and some minerals and with their Custom Bull Developer Supplement I provide the nutritional shortages to balance their programs requirements. Over the past number of years we have been able to lower the energy requirement of the diets and increase the forage percentages because of the way the bulls are converting. Conversion is the most economical trait we have and The genetics in the Mar Mac bull program is showing us this. Our goal is to raise well grown out bulls that will go out and cover females without breaking down and melting away. We want the bulls to mature and grow in a sound development program and we are very conscious about not getting them over conditioned and to cool down the bulls post sale to get them used to their new surroundings and environment. The sound nutrition I design will help enhance growth, conversion, and overall performance. Strong emphasis is on structure soundness, feet and legs, hair and reproductive development with increased scrotal development and semen quality. A sound nutritional program keeps all of this in mind. I balance Mar Mac’s feeding programs with Cargill’s BEEF MAX Ration Balancing Program. This program balances to different types of proteins, amino acids, fibers, chelated minerals and selenium, vitamins and the natural Diamond V-NaturSafe product to enhance stronger immunity and absorption of nutrients. Once again the key to a successful relationship is communication. This communication with Mar Mac Farms helps with a part of the success of their Bull Development Program for their customers.

BRETT & CHANTEL MCRAE -- BRANDON, MB -- 204-729-1018 B R E T T. M C R A E @ I C L O U D. C O M Welcome to the 2021 McRae Land & Livestock bull sale offering! This past year has been a rollercoaster to say the least! Getting married, a baby on the way (that will hopefully wait until AFTER sale day!) and of course, “The ‘Rona” Virus. I hope you have been able to see the amazing moments and blessings among the challenges in the past year just as we have. Thank-You for taking the time to look at our program, it means a lot to us. I feel that this is the year our breeding program is really starting to show its strengths. Overall our cow herd is based on 3 major principles: F E R T I L I T Y: Cows that come into the fall with a calf in their belly and calf at side S O U N D N E S S : Correct feet and udder structure and a docile temperament LO W M A I N T E N A N C E : Cows that do the work on their own without a bunch of fuss! On top of that we have also been mindful of the end product. We believe that to produce consistent, reliable calving ease bulls requires more than just a low birth weight. For that reason, we have chosen to breed my maternal, calving ease type cows to proven, maternal, calving ease bulls, in hopes to produce consistent, reliable, and predictable calving ease bulls for our customers. Conversely, our more high performance cows are bred to more high performance type bulls, that still maintain the low maintenance characteristics I am aiming to produce. The bulls in the sale this year were on pasture until the end of November 2020. These bulls are grown slow and not over-fed as to maximize the longevity of them for you. All of these bulls have been DNA tested with the Angus GS test. This test not only provides parent verification, but also enhances the accuracy of their EPD’s. Same as last year, I have scored all of these bulls for feet and docility on a 1-10 scale. 1 being the worst, and 10 being perfect. This is not a flawless system, but serves as a guide. The mothers of these bulls may not be at the sale site this year, but may be viewed in the corn grazing field 3 miles away, or by video. Please let me know in advance if you wish to see any of the cows. All of the dam weights are from December 2020 when we preg tested. This was at the end of stockpiled forage grazing, just before they were moved to the corn grazing. The average cow weight in our herd was 1368 pounds.

DOCILITY: 7 FEET: 8 While in New Zealand, I visited Turihaua Station and was extremely impressed with their low maintenance management, their breeding philosophy, and the consistency of their cattle. Turihaua is know across New Zealand for producing the best footed cattle in the country. I also had the chance to see Rex in person. He is the best footed Angus bull I have ever seen and when I came home I had to use him in my herd. 424G is exactly the type of bull I was hoping to produce! He is masculine, loose hided, has great feet, and has been as standout from day one!

DOCILITY: 9 FEET: 9 418G has been my favourite from the start. He is stylish, masculine and smooth, and has the best temperament and feet in the pen. He is everything I was hoping for out of a Pinebank calf! When I was looking for a bull to breed to my maternal, calving ease type cows that would produce consistent calves with style and shape, while maintaining the calving ease and maternal strengths of these cows, Travis Olson of OLE Farms recommended HAR Pinebank 443 202 from Diamond D Angus. I have been very impressed with the Diamond D program and the calves so far. This bull’s mother, 44C has been one of my top 3 Sandy Bar cows right from the start as well. She is moderate framed, feminine and produces a great calf every year. This year she raised a full brother to 418G that is every bit as good as he is.

I have been blown away by the consistency, quality and eye appeal of the Ripzone calves. I may be biased, but in my mind, he is one of the best real-world Red Angus bulls you can find. This bulls dam, 410D is a moderate framed cow that is quickly building a reputation for raising standout bull calves.

As we are with the bulls everyday, we know the qualities in each bull. If we buy a bull for you sight unseen and you do not like him, you donâ€™t own him - no problem! Donâ€™t forget to check out the videos!
At the Mar Mac and Guests Bull Sale our 60 plus years of experience as a family run operation means CUSTOMER SERVICE is an important part of our business.

Your new bull is a valuable asset and we recommend insuring your bull for infertility coverage and all risk mortality. If you are taking advantage of our wintering program, your new bull must be insured so we both have peace of mind. Insurance will be available from Keystone Livestock Services.
