A different kind of Angus...
We focus on breeding straight Canadian Angus genetics. We have found these cattle to be predictable, consistent in type and kind, and they offer balanced performance throughout the supply chain. They have extra length and capacity while keeping all the other great Angus traits that we know and love: great calving ease, desirable maternal traits, longevity and vigor while still being easy to handle. These cows produce a high percentage of calves weaned despite being calved out extensively in early Spring conditions and going to range with minimal observation. Calves with these genetics grow well on the cow on range and perform well in feedlots, finishing at 1500-1600lbs with a high percentage grading AAA with a yeild grade Y3 or better. They are low maintenance, sound, hardy cattle that work well on the ranch, in the feedlot and at the packing plant.
Our yearling bulls are sold privately off the ranch. We are happy to have people walk through our bull pens starting early in the New Year in January. If you're interested in our program feel free to give Jason a call (250) 319-6925.
We are really happy with our 2023 calf crop! They calves looked great at Spring turnout and we are looking forward to sorting through them this Fall. We will update this site with the number of bull calves on offer in each sire group after our weaning in October.
