Our farm was homesteaded in 1903 by James & Alicia Alexander. Shorthorn cattle arrived soon after and have been a continuous part of our farm since. The registered herd was established in 1917.
Since 1980, we have sold breeding stock to 9 Canadian provinces and to 28 US states. Semen from our herdsires has been sold throughout North America as well as to South Africa, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. More recently, our ET program has resulted in sales of embryos to leading breeders in Canada, USA, Scotland, England and Australia.
Our operation is strictly a cattle operation. Through the late 70's, 80's and 90's, we also operated a feedlot and this enterprise allowed us to gain practical experience with cattle from almost every breed. We have also maintained purebred herds of several other breeds over the years, but Shorthorns have always been our main focus. Today our farming operation consists of only the production of quality Shorthorns.
There is often a big difference between breeding show cattle and showing breeding cattle. We believe in the production of practical, hard working cattle that can work in Western Canadian commercial operations. If they work in the show ring - well, it is a bonus.
