For over the last 75 years Marcy Cattle Company & Marcy Livestock have built a cow herd of deep-ribbed, easy fleshing cowmakers with a commitment to raising the very best Registered Angus cattle possible for their discriminating customers. The ranch was homesteaded at the western edge of the Nebraska sandhills by their ancestors in 1887. This was before any official brand registration of any kind. Tom Marcy still uses the original lazy ninety-seven brand registered in 1897. Marcys have been in the registered Angus business since before World War II. When their father Charles Marcy arrived home from “flying the hump” in the Himalayas delivering supplies and flying wounded out, the Angus business began in earnest. From that beginning the original cow families of Erica, Pride, Ethelda and others were selected, that are present in so many of the pedigrees today. Continuous selection pressure to produce a female that survives in the environment that nature provides has resulted in a maternal herd that works for a living. Strong attention to maternal traits, structure, fertility, fleshing ability, muscle and mothering ability has resulted in a consistent, reliable source of seedstock for registered and commercial cattlemen. No creep feed is used on the registered cows and they must pass the test of a demanding environment and follow the disciplined breeding program of cattle that produce long bodied, heavy muscled, thick made progeny with top end product and big ribeye cattle.
In Tom's business of buying thousands of feeder cattle, quality with type & kind has been the factor that determines the maximum price. Our focus will always be on producing quality, performance and maternal traits with special attention to the cow herd.
