1:30 PM -- March 8, 2017 -- BRandon, mB Guest Consignor Angus Valley Farm


Welcome to the 13th Annual Mar Mac Bull Sale to be held on the farm. Mar Mac is proud to say in 2017 we have been members of the Canadian Angus Association for 62 years and 41 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. 2016 has been an interesting year with extreme weather, cattle market stabilizing in the fall to the 3rd biggest pay cheque we have ever taken home for our feeder cattle. 2017 has started off more stable and we are excited to see how the year proceeds. Mar Mac is very proud to offer you another top set of bulls. It is hard to say that our bulls seem to get better every year but they do. Our weaning weights were higher and quality just keeps getting better. With the tools of BW, WW, YW, EPD’s and of course with the use of our eyes evaluating the confirmation. Mar Mac works hard to produce a top quality product for you our customers, who we hope will work in any purebred or commercial operation. We take time to attend auction mart sales and see what the market is moving towards and the kind of cattle that the Auction mart buyers are looking for. Birth weight: The weights you see are the bulls actual birth weight . With in 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. Mar Mac has tried hard to keep that length and natural thickness in all of their divisions. Weaning weights are all actual weights September 28, 2016. 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. 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 long gone. Our cowherd is 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. Our calves are not crept 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. One month 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 quiet weans are used. Weaning day the bulls are weighed, weaned and brought home. Once home they are started on corn silage, hay, grain and supplement ration that has been balanced and formulated for longevity and fertility. 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 bulls. To Mar Mac 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. Due to our increase in numbers with Brett adding some more Black Angus cows we have decided to host our own bull sale with Bruce McRae as a consignor. The bulls are all fed in one spot, you will find fatter bulls but these are fed to last. We will be offering new this year, bred commercial females and open commercial females. Please feel free to talk to any of our sales staff, marketing reps, or our family members if you have questions about the bulls or our program. You can bid online sale day at DLMS or see the videos of the bulls at cattlevids.ca. Perkin Land and Cattle are moving to another sale as they want to also increase their numbers. We wish them success in their new venture. 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 meeting with you on sale day, although we can not visit with everyone, would like to thank you for attending our sale and supporting our beef program. Blair, Lois, Brett and Melissa McRae

p.s. Join us for a roast beef lunch at noon. Our sale barn is heated but the bulls are on display outside, so dress accordingly.

Check out the video of Ribeye at www.marmacfarms.net to see the agility and stride he has for a Red Angus bull!!! We are so impressed by how docile, free moving, structurally sound and thick topped Ribeye is. A number of the Red Angus bulls are out of Ribeye females. It will be very hard to replace Ribeye as no matter bulls or females, they worked.

In our search for some new outcross genetics, we searched out this Capacity son out of a Wallstreet dam. Some new genetics that we felt would benefit out program. We are extremely impressed with the depth, volume and natural meat and muscle that Capacity has injected into our calf crop. His first daughter was heifer calf champion at AG Ex and Reserve Senior Heifer Calf champion at Agribition 2017. Check out his calves sale day.

Outcross genetics and what a package. We retained Spartan to use in our program. His sire, Blackberry, left a strong set of bulls and boy what a set of females he left at Mar Mac. Blackberry’s dam is our donor female McRae’s Bridget 125T (sired by Stevenson’s Bruno). On the dam’s side, when we purchased the Buck Valley herd one of strong cow families was the Siera line. To produce some outcross genetics we bred Siera to the beefy DMM Makin Waves sire. This combination has resulted in Spartan. So you will have to drive many miles to find a sire with these outcross genetics, along with the performance, and strong maternal strength. We are very impressed with his sons and daughters.

Debut was our show bull in 2016, a number of breeders and commercial producers were extremely impressed with his smooth front, length of body, thick topped, dark cherry red color and fault free profile. Debut was the Bull Calf Champion at the Ag Ex Manitoba Angus Gold Show. Zeppelin x 10T cross really worked well, we got a number of heifer calves and this bull. The Red McRae’s Ruby 10T cow family is one of the noted, cow families in our program and a no miss production record. Debut has herd bull written all over him, remember when buying a herd sire take into consideration the strength of his dam, Ruby 10T. Here is a heifer bull that will not sacrifice pounds at weaning.

Mar Mac bull program has been developed using the highest amount of silage and hay in the ration along with grain and supplement to achieve the energy and protein requirements they need to develop. The program is designed to achieve optimal gain, lean growth and skeletal frame but not to have excess condition on the bulls. The supplement used is the Nutre Beef Bull Developer Supp which enhances fertility, testical size, hair growth and foot health. Regards, Doug Allison

If you are wanting a big stout beef bull that has a mother cow you can write a book on here he is. 86D puts it all together in one unique package.

Brett has participated in Canadian Cattleman Events in Calgary, Ottawa and the Five Nations meetings in New Zealand last October. The opportunities for young beef producers are endless.

Johnny Cash sold through our Mar Mac Farms and Guests Bull Sale to Wayne Heinrichs. Wayne lives close by and calves later in the season, so we use Johnny Cash before he starts breeding. Since day one, Johnny Cash was a stand out with his blaze face and lots of natural thickness, depth of quarter and just the cowboy kind of bull. In our Simmental program, we want to add some performance to our Simmental cattle as those extra pounds are what brings in the big pay cheques at the auction marts.

Robert (Bob) Gordon {Nov 13, 1932 - July 29, 2016} In Memory of our Father and Grandfather

On July 29, 2016, we lost a very important person in our lives. Dad was a man with big dreams who loved challenges. He was devoted to the Agriculture industry always willing to learn and help get young people involved. As the oldest child, I spent many hours with Dad, learning and working on livestock, touring cattle herds, and attending cattle shows and sales. Dad had a keen eye for the good ones and always had a vision into the future. Dad’s amazing memory enabled him to remember cattle, their pedigrees and people. As a family of five children, Dad and Mom’s children and grandchildren are all involved in Agriculture and leading the way in various aspects. Dad has instilled to reach for your dreams, love the land and your family, be a leader, look to the future and work hard for what you want to accomplish. We hope that our family will leave an impact on the Agricultural Industry like our father has done. Missing you today and always Dad Love Lois, Blair, Brett and Melissa

A true stockman never dies; he’s just selected by the best judge of them all!!
