Welcome to Shining Star Cattle Company...

Annual Calf Sale • August 5, 2017 • 2:00 PM


We are a three generation family owned beef cattle operation located in southern Erie County, New York. We strive to meet the ever growing and evolving needs of our customers.


Our 60 cow herd is compiled of several breeds; Registered Maine Anjou, Mainetainer and Registered Angus.  We also have a big splash of club calf influences from Simmental, Shorthorn, Chianina, Charolais and Hereford.


Our focus is to provide club calves, replacement females and herd sires as well as provide top quality finished beef for our retail customers.

Shining Star Cattle Company was officially organized in 2007 to bring focus to the dreams of our family business. Ann and her parents started raising beef cattle as 4-H projects. The first female purchased was a Registered Angus heifer and the ball started rolling from there.  The Maine Anjou and club calf influence was added in the 1990's when Ann’s son, Tyler Strub joined  the 4-H program and had a desire to breed competitive  show steers and heifers.  Over the years, strategic purchases of several  heifers from reputable breeders have upgraded our genetic base and led us to wonderful new friends and business associates. Tyler’s siblings, Nevin and Natalie and their cousins, Corrin and Nicole round out the current group of showring enthusiasts.


In 2008, we ventured into providing 1/4s, 1/2s or whole finished beef to supply the families with top quality cuts of locally grown beef.

Because we are firm believers and supporters of 4-H, FFA and youth livestock clubs, we are sincerely dedicated to providing quality calves for youth to learn all that it takes to raise, show and market their project  successfully.  Nothing brings us greater satisfaction and smiles than to watch our calves go on and perform well for their new owners. We know from experience the life lessons  and lasting friendships that are gained by working with livestock.
