Great Western Stockyards

Great Western Stockyards is a cattle auction serving Fannin County and surrounding areas. GWS attracts buyers from all market sectors through out the region and specializes in fresh country cattle, therefore, our buyers are willing to pay premium prices.

Welcome to Great Western Stockyards!

Great Western Stockyards is located in the major center of commerce for Fannin County, which is Bonham, Texas. Bonham has relied on agriculture as it's main industry since being founded in the 1800's. It is an area that is rich in cattle history and whose citizen ranchers have carried the same values into the 21st Century. Great Western Stockyards is family-owned and operated based on the mantra "Farm and Ranching as a way of life."

Owners, Tim and Randy Mayo are seasoned in the cattle business culminating in 80 years of combined experience in buying and selling cattle throughout Texas. Although new to the Fannin County area, they have identified the significant demand to support a high quality state-of-the-art auction facility to help facilitate and create a vibrant market for the local stockmen.
