Randy McCabe credits the late Bob Faler of Elk Valley Hereford Ranch as being an early mentor. Faler ran a neighboring Hereford operation. When Randy McCabe was in high school he helped out Faler so when Faler passed, Randy bought out that operation.
The management philosophy of McCabe Genetics is focused on developing close relationships with its customers and giving them opportunities they might not otherwise have available to them. “We help them be the best they can be,” says the McCabes.
