Noteworthy Updates:

We have a tentative date of Sunday, February 26, 2017 for the MSBA Annual Meeting. Alternative date is Sunday, February 19. The location will be the Senior Center in Charlotte, MI same location it was held in 2016. Stay tuned for more details. It promises to be a great time of fellowship, food and cattle talk.

The Michigan Shorthorn Breeders Association would like to invite members and Shorthorn breeders to participate in the 2017 Michigan Beef Expo Shorthorn sale. The Expo will be held March 31 through April 1 at the Michigan State University Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education in Lansing. Consignments of bulls, open heifers, and bred females as well as semen, flushes and embryo lots are welcome. The beef expo is also offering a penned sale opportunity for cattle that would not be shown.

The Michigan Beef Expo sale committee has a stronger commitment to regional and national advertising and has also contracted with DV Auctions to post all breed sales online as well as the catalog. This allows us a greater opportunity to reach potential buyers outside of Michigan. Additionally, the sale catalog will be printed in full color.

The links below are the consignor letter and consignment form. If you would like additional information or to discuss your offering, please contact Carla McLachlan, MSBA president and sale chairperson, at 517-242-2395 or by email at All consignment forms and fees are due by January 25 to ensure inclusion in the catalog.
