Since the beginning of our Calf Roundup program in 1994 we have a long history of helping our customers market their calves for top prices without the normal discounts for small groups and color discrimination. To qualify for the Calf Roundup the producer must purchase either a Braunvieh or Hybrid bull from McBee Cattle Company.
After the producer qualifies, any calf sired by a McBee bull or out of a female purchased directly from us qualifies to be marketed through the Calf Roundup. After your first bull purchase, the customer is allowed one calf crop exception. In other words you can bring calves once to the Roundup that are not sired by our bulls.
These qualifications were developed to be able to market a uniform set of calves that are consistent in their makeup. By uniform, we are NOT talking about being the same color. Over the years of marketing over 24,000 McBee Braunvieh cross calves for our customers, we have learned that for the most part buyers are looking for consistency and will pay for it. We know we can do it with these qualifications.
