Welcome...

On behalf of Beck Farms I would like to welcome you to our annual bull sale. The cattle market has definitely changed over the past twelve months; however, it is painfully obvious that quality pays. In particular, the Charolais cross advantage was extremely apparent this past fall at the auction mart. Every year we work diligently to put forth the best set of Charolais bulls we possibly can. This year is no exception. The sale offering this year is the largest it has ever been and definitely the deepest. Uniformity is important for commercial producers in selling your calves. Our breeding program is designed with this in mind. You will find many ½ and ¾ brothers through the sale offering.

In an effort to help our customers, we are offering a bull development service for these yearling bulls. You will find details of this later in the catalog. Please join us for lunch on sale day in our heated sale barn on the farm. Be prepared to stay after for our annual ‘fish fry’. We hope to see you all on February 22, the bulls and the hospitality is guaranteed not to disappoint.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our 8th annual bull sale on behalf on of McCoy Cattle Co. I am pretty amazed that this is already our 8th bull sale in this format but here we are. The folks at Beck Farms have been a great sale partner from Day 1. It has been especially gratifying to move the sale back to their operation over the past 3 years. We have definitely found synergies in offering multiple breeds via the same event.

Welcome...

2017 is a year of change for us. This is the first year we will not offer Gelbvieh bulls in our sale. We sincerely appreciate the support our Gelbvieh customers have given us over the past 20 years. Gelbvieh genetics will continue to have a place in our commercial program as you will see at the back of the catalog. We are very excited about the future of the Hereford breed in our local market and in Western Canada in general so have decided to focus our efforts there. The type and quality of Hereford bull we are producing has evolved dramatically over the past 8 sales. Simply put these Hereford bulls create a lot more real financial value for your program than they did 5 or 10 years ago. More calving ease, greater maternal function, higher end carcass value, and greater pay weight just to name a few of our areas of focus.

This is without a doubt the deepest, most consistent set of bulls that both Becks and ourselves have offered. We spend a tremendous amount of time to source the best genetics from across North America to drive the genetics in our programs forward. Please join us on February 22 to evaluate our efforts and enjoy some of our hospitality at the same time.
