Quality Red Angus Cattle :: Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Cattle


We are a family run operation located 15 minutes east of Saskatoon, shop SK. Our mission is to provide quality Red Angus bulls to the commercial cattle industry. The majority of our yearling and two year old bulls are sold through our annual bull sale the second Saturday in March each year at Saskatoon Livestock Sales. With over fifty years experience as commercial cow/calf operators we understand what works in the real world and we produce our cattle to stand up and perform in ranching conditions.

While our main business is selling bulls, we do sell select females in elite consignments sales. We have also sold packages of females off the farm, but the number of females we are willing to part with is very limited. We believe in offering quality and not quantity to our customers, and feel that in order to continue to improve the strength of our bull pen we must retain as many of our best females as possible.

If you are ever in the area feel free to drop by. We like touring visitors through the herd and talking about cattle.

The principles of our breeding program are based on breeding cattle that are balanced in all traits. We have placed special emphasis on improving the overall width, page hip stucture and muscling in our cattle; they are not your typical Red Angus. While above average performance is desirable we also understand the importance of calving ease and maternal traits which have gotten the Angus breed where it is today. The basics of stong hoof and udder structure are not compromised in our pursuit of genetic improvement.

The Angus female is the basis of the commercial cowherd in North America.  Her strong mothering ability, fleshing ability, fertility and milk production have made her the cornerstone of our industry.  The instincts of the Angus cow are part of her trouble free design which have made her often imitated, but never duplicated by other breeds.  When selecting our own herd bulls their own mother is a large part of our selection criteria.  You will often hear us speak about cow families and they are an extremely important part of breeding consistant and profitable genetics.

Although we have utilized AI to bring in new genetics, we continually rely on our own herd bulls to raise the bar.  We have found we can acheive more rapid, conistant improvement in our herd by utilizing the strengths of our bulls.  No animal is perfect, but by analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of our sires and dams we can mate them to produce a more ideal animal.  We have also learned over the years to not underestimate the potential of our own genetics, and therefore you will notice we are using more sires that carry our own prefix.  As our herd has improved it has become increasingly more difficult to source new genetics that will maintain or imporove our herd from its current level.  That is why we are now focusing on producing more of our own sires and have started introducing more genetics from the Black Angus gene pool to find an outcross.
