The Saskatchewan Charolais Association has named Beck Farms the 2020 Breeder of the Year. Beck Farms is a family-operated mixed farm outside of Milestone, Sask. The family got its start in the Charolais breed when Wade, Mark and Jill purchased four Charolais heifers to show in 4-H in 1987.
The Charolais tradition continues with the third generation of the family consistently showing Charolais and Charolais-influenced animals in 4-H, the Canadian Charolais Youth Association Conference and jackpot shows. In 2021, they will calve 240 purebred Charolais cows. The Beck family also hosts a bull sale on the farm the last Wednesday of February each year.
Congratulations to the Beck family!
