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 Hereford 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"

BINX 1L is a direct son of Red Fineline Mulberry 26P, known for his perfect udder daughters and thick, easy doing sons. 1L is a deeply made bull out of a well milking moderate cow with tonnes of thickness and excellent muscle expression.
BINX Moonshine 13L is a direct son of the original Red Crowfoot Moonshine 8081U who is a legend in the Angus business. 13L is the strongest bone framed red bull we have on offer. He is out of a large framed cow and would make a good option for a larger framed herd. He covers ground with ease and with a BW of 85 lbs this guy will give you lots of options and add performance.
BINX 30L is out of our red herd sire, Rafter SJ Crush 18R who is a direct son out of the Northline Crush. Binx 30L is a dark cherry heifer bull that is very smooth and has a very balanced stride. He will cover ground with ease and get the job done.
Crusher is the youngest red bull on offer and is pretty much a copy cat bull of 30L. You have to admire 32L’s top line, neck and length of rib. He’s a great heifer bull option with a 75lb BW who weaned off at 712lbs
The matriarch of our herd, 61Y has produced another one we can be proud of at Lazy B. Musgrave Colossal being the sire of BINX 2L, offers unmatched body mass and rib shape, rarely seen in a top ranking, proven CE sire. BINX 2L looks to be following his sires traits by offering lots of frame, bone growth and deepness through his hip. Colossal will make a great addition to someones herd.
Jo Jo is another Cool Change bull calf that we admire for his depth of rib. Jo Jo is a very evenly made bull with lots of presence to him. He gets out and moves with a very smooth shoulder. With a BW of 79, this guy gives calving ease and performance options. Take a good look at him and we are sure you will agree.
Take a good look at this Coleman Bravo son. 9L is probably the most complete bull we have on offer. This guy is a Tank!! Deeply made. Fleshy with smooth movement. His sire is a true breeding bull that is highly respected by cattlemen around the world. Bravo 9L is out of one of our older, moderate cows with a tonne of length to her. She consistently produces top females and bulls.
Bravo Switch is another Coleman Brave son that we are proud of at Lazy B. We almost culled this bull because he lost his tail switch. But we could not help but over look that when we saw his muscle expression and how deeply made and fleshy he became. With a WW of 749 and a BW of 79, this guy is sure to add pounds to the calf crop. 12L’s Dam is one of those cows that can raise a set of twins and maintain a great udder. He will make a great addition to someones herd.
BINX 14L is a SAV Radiance son which has crossed very nicely with our Tilly 5E bloodline. His Dam, LBL Eileens Tilly 5E was designated Premier/Elite Dam Status with the Canadian Angus Association for 5 consecutive years with top rated EPD’s. Radiance is deep through his flank, very balanced with smooth shoulders and a round hip. Radiance should provide a very good calving ease option
Cool Change 16L is out of our black herd sire, LBL Cool Change. This guy is a monster! He has a tonne of style to him that catches your eye when you enter the pen of bulls. His Dam has a pitch perfect udder and is a “large and in charge” type of cow. If you are looking to add performance and pounds to your calves, look no further!
Jay 21L is another of our Cool Change Bulls. You have to admire this Cool Change Progeny as they are good footed, have a clean front end and step out with a lot of presence. And Jay 21L is no exception to this. He will make a great addition to someones herd.
Joe is a twin out of one of our top notch Blackbird cows that raised both him and his brother with impressive WW’s. His actual BW was 71 lbs and he weaned off Sept 17th at 620 lbs. At no point did we ever supplement either twin, the cow managed quite well on her own. Joe is a very thick, square, solid, impressive hind end of our lots. You have to appreciate him for his depth and demeanor and structural correctness.
This bull is out of one of our successful show cows. His Damn is beautifully developed, sure footed with a perfect udder. He’s a ranchy bull that was sired by Harvest Admiral 8C. With an 89lb BW, weaning off Sept 17th at 770, this bull is well on his way to being a solid herd sire.
This bull is very thick from top to bottom. His scrotal development and structure make him a real eye catcher. We sold a ½ brother to Brayden Rycroft about 4 years ago and he doesn’t disappoint. He is product of a few generations of our AI program and we are very pleased with his development. If he wasn’t related to ½ our herd, he would be staying .
If you are looking for a thick hearty bull that can cover your pasture, this is your guy. He is sure footed, well muscled and can cover all sorts of terrain. His Damn is a red carrier. He had a lot of compliments at the Peace Country Beef Congress this year as he is quite stylish.
Kingpins Damn is out of one of our first acquired RED cows. She is a 12 year old powerhouse cow, standing tall and strong. She has produced everything from power bulls to heifer bulls and Kingpin is somewhere in the middle, depending on what we bred her to. With an 87lb BW, we are confident in CE in young cows. Last year Brent & Kim Knickle added a heifer bull out of this cow to their herd and are quite pleased with him. His color and stature is Harvest Admiral 8C.
This is another bull from an older show cow that has stood the test of time, LBL Khaleesi 1C. He is a Harvest Admiral 8C son with a 87lb BW. A good square bull with lots of volume. His EPD chart shows easier CE and heavier WW. He is more of a moderate sized bull that needs to be seen to be appreciated. Rainey Ranch from Lone Prairie, BC purchased a full sibling heifer as a 4H project last in 2021 and were very pleased with her.
SAV Renovation 6822 is a bull used to improve maternal traits and solid body composition. His first progenies are reporting added performance in the bull calves and an attractive look to his females. LBL’s Renovation seems to be following in his sires footsteps with a tonne of hip to him.
This Mulberry Bull is a very smooth shouldered bull with an actual 87 lb BW. His damn is one of our favourite cookie eating loveable creatures in the yard. She is a large and in-charge, well milking cow who continues to produce quality offspring. The best way to appreciate this bull is to see him, and his brother, in person.
Intel is a very long bodied and structurally correct bull. His sires calves are consistently low BW and CE. LBL Intels actual BW was 76 lbs and weaned off Sept 17th at 764 pounds, out of one of our first time calving heifers. He should give you impressive calving options with added growth.
We were very fortunate to acquire some Red Fineline Mulberry 26P semen. This bull is a “breed legend worldwide known for his perfect uddered daughters and thick easy doing sons”. It’s not too often that a bull from the Peace Country like Van Gaalen’s makes it to stardom. Red LBL Mulberry 12B 3K is a deep bodied bull out of a moderate well milking mature cow, built for longevity. A Donaldson Ranch purchased a 1/2 maternal brother to this bull and have been extremely pleased.
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 yearling, 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.
BW 96 lbs Actual WW 796 lbs
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.
BW 80 lbs Actual WW 602 lbs
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 and 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
A big framed RB Tour Of Duty son stretching out in all directions This guy will be able to cover your herd and check off all the boxes.
Out of Northline Heavy Joe 76D, known for extended body length and smooth front. Great all around bull.
Deep body, fleshy, correct bull. His pedigree is full of SAV Shaft breeding with the names of Radiance, Harvester, Net Worth and Bismark.
