About Circle M Cattle

  • Alex Mareth began his college career at Kansas State University. He worked for the Vathauer’s feedyard and later interned with Thomas Angus Ranch. After working with these companies, he found his love for the cattle industry and wanted to bring that back home to Southwest Missouri. He decided to move back home in pursuit of creating a family-run cattle operation. Alex finished his Animal Science B.S. with a minor in Agriculture Business at Missouri State University.

    Alex and his family broke ground in Washburn, Missouri March of 2018 to build what is now Circle M Cattle. While this operation is fairly new, the Mareth family’s love for agriculture is not. Both of Alex’s grandfathers were rooted in agriculture. These individuals have instilled a love for agriculture in Alex and they are the reason for what we do today.

    Circle M Cattle is family owned and includes a 10-acre feedyard, registered angus herd, and cow/calf operation.
  • MISSION: A relationship driven cattle service that is dedicated to serving the agriculture industry by providing the highest level of husbandry to our livestock.
  • VISION: A family-oriented company that is defined by faith and hard work. We believe we are stewards to God’s land and creatures and are devoted to creating value for our customers.
