Trevor and his 4 siblings were raised on a commercial livestock operation in Grande Prairie, AB run by Robert and Dorene Binks.
Trevor got his first purebred Herford heifer when he was 10 years old and through his teens he had several purebred animals he showed at 4H shows and county fairs. He continued into his adulthood with a small commercial herd from descendants of the family farm.
In 2008 he acquired his own brand and farm name.....Lazy B Livestock was born.
Melanie hails from a gold mining family in the Yukon Territory. She met Trevor in 2011 and although farming was not a part of her livelihood, the cattle industry quickly became natural to her. Together they purchased LBL's first purebred Red and Black Angus animals. Since that time they have purchased seed stock Angus from across Alberta and British Columbia, growing their herd and calving out exceptional animals.
Both Trevor and Melanie have been certified in Cattle Insemination. They stay extremely busy with full time jobs off the farm, cattle shows around the peace country and growing their herd. Between them they have 4 beautiful grown kids and their spouses, along with 4 amazing grandkids!
"Our goal is to produce and sell quality commercial and purebred angus cattle, with honesty and integrity, throughout the Peace Country, through private treaty sales off the farm
The matriarch of our herd, 61Y, has done it again! This tremendously thick, balanced bull is out of our first black angus cow at Lazy B. 61Y has produced several working bulls for satisfied customers throughout the Peace Country. If you have large cows and are worried about using a yearly, this is the guy for you. This large framed Admiral son stretches out in all directions. He will make a great cow bull for anyone.

This is the first time we have used Long Distance as an AI sire and we are very pleased with the outcome. His feet and leg structure are outstanding and his disposition is exceptional. Super smooth on the front end and although his BW dictates he is not a heifer bull, I would not hesitate to use him on any of our heifers. His Actual WW was 714 lbs oct 11 2021.
BW 90 lbs
We love this deep bodied, fleshy correct bull. Radiance has an outstanding phenotype showcasing some of the best natural muscle and shape that we have seen in a calving ease bull. He has tremendous sound structure, solid disposition and outstanding feet and legs. We believe Radiance is the most balanced bull on offer. His Dam goes back to the Harvest Angus Jo Jo line that was sired by Belvin Cognac, a great heifer bull.
BW 81 Actual WW 720 lbs
A smaller bull that makes up for his size with his structurally correct frame and disposition. This bull travels nicely on sound feet and straight legs. When touring our bull pen, this bull always catches your eye, as he has so much potential. He is a slower maturing bull that will be a great heifer bull.

This unique RED bull is the product of a Black Dam and a Black Sire that were both red carriers. With RED TER-RON Fully Loaded in his pedigree, Loaded Pride is a long, tall ranchy bull can cover all sorts of terrain. He is sure footed, well muscled and sound on straight legs. He weaned off Oct 3 2021 at 788 lbs with a modest BW of 85 lbs.
Moonshine is a prodigy out of a Moonshine herd sire we acquired from Rafter SJ. We wanted to add some volume and depth to our red angus side and by looking at this bull, we seem to have achieved just that. A great all-around bull that checks off maternal calving ease and heavier WW and YW.
BW 70 lbs Actual WW 678 lbs
We AI’d one of our powerhouse cows to a super calving ease bull, Leland Marksman. This dam has produced everything from power bulls to heifer bulls. Marksman creates great calving ease without sacrificing body capacity, density or growth. With roots going back to Fine Line Combination and Leland Marksman, this bull will be sure to produce exceptional calves.
BW 83 lbs Actual WW 700 lbs
