Thank You to all of the commercial and purebred breeders that supported us buying and bidding at the 2013 Cattleman’s Classic Bull Sale. The pure interest and support in our program was overwhelming. Also a special thank you goes out to our friends, family and our crew for a great day. RSK Farms Polled Hereford bulls averaged $3244.00.

As a result of the Decision Deferred bulls not being offered in the sale, RSK Farms will be re-testing in a few weeks. The few bulls that were decision deferred are for sale by private treaty and are SRSK 4Z, ARSK 5Z, RSK 29Z and ARSK 65Z. They will be fully guaranteed by RSK Farms as breeders.

I strongly urge you to take a look and see if anything would fit your program. There are some great heifer bulls that were left at home due to the semen test. If we at RSK Farms cam be of any assistance please give us a call. We would be happy to talk with you and discuss the bulls.

Once again Thanks for a great sale and stay tuned to what is to come for this season.

You are invited to stop buy and tour the farm during the 2013 Canadian Junior National Hereford Show in Brandon, MB. Cattle will be on display for our first internet female and embryo sale to be held Oct 24th – 28th. We look forward to visiting with you.

RSK Farms Fall Sale Opportunities

As many of you know, RSK Farms is a family run mixed farm with a strong devotion to the Hereford industry. At the moment we do not run a big enough quantity of livestock to support an annual sale, but what we do have is a small to medium sized purebred herd with tremendous quality.

We have had a very exciting fall. Harvest was completed before September 1st, and halter breaking is in full swing. Everyone has been on their game and ready for the fall run. We are very excited about our fall offerings and believe that they are the best we have ever offered.

RSK Farms has an elite set of females and genetics for the 2012 Agribition National Sale and the 2012 MHA Good as Gold Sale. These lots are from the heart of our herd and we are very proud of them and believe that they will not only be practical, functional females that will increase profits, but will also be competitive in the show ring. Also on offer will be a very elite set of embryos that will complement the live lots that we have on offer.

We invite you to take a look and see us at the stalls in Brandon, MB at MLE and of course Regina, SK at Agribition. If at any time you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Click here to take a look at our current sales…

Right to Left: RSK 64Y, RSK 23Z, RSK 28Z, RSK 17Z

With over 25 years in the business and a long time to come yet, we will grow and continue to expand our herd providing quality livestock to the industry. You can also count on customer service that is honest and informed.
Stay tuned later in the fall for an exciting new opportunity to acquire a RSK Bull this spring!

RSK Farms WHC and MHA Field Day

08.09.12
RSK Farms WHC and MHA Field Day
What a time to be a Hereford breeder! With all of the meetings, tours and shows complete and still fresh in our minds, I really look forward to what is next to come. I would like to applaud the hard work and time that went into the event from everyone that was involved. We certainly had a great time and enjoyed meeting new and old friends along the way. Congratulations to the CHA for a wonderful event!
At RSK Farms, our planning for the WHC and MHA Field Day started about 2 years ago at the Manitoba Annual Meetings, by volunteering to host the 2012 MB Field Day. Hosting a post tour stop and promoting MB Herefords was a great opportunity for everyone involved.
Excluding all the planning that was involved our WHC trip started on July 10th at about 10:30PM. We drove through the night and made it to Olds were we rested the cattle and ourselves until Sunday morning when the cattle went into the Olds Ag Society. Thank You to Cole and Jill and all the Harvie Ranching crew for the hospitality. The show in Olds was top shelf and the facilities were amazing. The amount of people watching and involved in the event sure makes for a positive outlook in the industry. We were very impressed by the amount of people that came by the stall to look at the string and chat about Herefords and our program. A major highlight in the show was RSK 6U Miss Sage 64Y bred by RSK Down Under 6U. She was a class winner and named Reserve Junior Yearling Champion Female.
Our trip back home started Wednesday night at about 6:30PM. I made it home in good time with 2 days left to finish setting up for the field day. RSK farms played host to just over 125 head of Hereford cattle as well as just over 200 guests throughout the day, including about 70 international guests from: New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Denmark, UK, England, Switzerland, South Africa, Uruguay, Ireland and USA.
RSK Farms displayed the Reserve Champion 2 yr old female with RSK 154U Miss Tamara 8X owned with Clay Ent., as well as the Reserve Champion Yearling Female with RSK 4L Miss Princess 1Y. We had a small group of ET calves on display as well. We were very fortunate and proud to be able to host this event and show the world what MB Herefords are made of as well as to promote some RSK genetics.
To everyone that helped out at home to get ready for this event, I thank you very much. It would have not been a successful event without your hard work. Also to all the sponsors for their contributions to event, it was greatly appreciated.
Stay tuned for what is next to come from RSK Farms. There will be some exciting offerings and opportunities this fall. Also for any Juniors that are needing Junior Heifers for Bonanza, feel free to stop by and take a look, or watch the RSK website, we would be pleased to work with you on any inquiry. The Junior National is in Brandon next year only 7 miles from the farm. We would be happy to tour you around the operation.
