The Transcon Team
Jay started with Transcon in 1996. Jay grew up in a purebred beef family in Central Alberta, then when his dad dispersed, ran a successful business managing show strings at major shows in Canada and the U.S. Jay's youth, enthusiasm, cattle knowledge, and love of the Simmental breed and its breeders has quickly gained him a stature and credibility.
Jay's visits to over 200 farms every year communicating with breeders keeps him in tune with what breeder's big and small need. Jay's success as an order buyer also is unprecedented and he has very quickly gained the confidence of buyers who allow him to represent them at the sale in their absence. Jay's manner on the auction block with the auctioneer is as good, or better, than any other in this field. He understands that his job is to enhance the value of the animal in the sale ring. His knowledge of the program behind the sale animal, gained while doing farm visits, is invaluable to the marketing of the animal.

Glenn was born and raised at Drayton Valley, AB and their family started breeding Simmental in 1972. He was involved with 4-H and the YCS programs and showed cattle at Farmfair and Agribition, with many championships over two decades. As Norton Simmentals they sold their bulls at the ASA Camrose Bull Sale and then the Top Guns Bull Sale. In 2006 they dispersed their 200 head cowherd in a very well-received dispersal sale.
Since then, Glenn has stayed on the farm calving 160 head of crossbred cows in April and May, alongside his two boys Ryan & Riley. Glenn brings more than 25 years of experience in this business to Transcon and we are glad to have him on The Team.
