Is a family owned and operated ranch at Shiningbank Lake, AB. We began our journey into the Purebred Simmental business with the purchase of our first registered bred cow and heifer calf in 1991 and now have a registered herd of 340 Simmental cows. Our goal has been to raise a great herd of cattle based on sound feet, udders, longevity and good disposition and we have found that in the Simmental breed. Our herd program is 50% Fullblood Simmental and 50% Purebred Red Factor, with a few Blacks. Many of our cows go back to those original girls we purchased so many years ago, a real testament to those family lines!


This year we have new Fullblood genetics in  JNR Cool Cat, Double Bar D Aero 298B and sons again from  an outstanding bull we purchased from Brink Genetics in Iowa, Brink Innovator B449. We also have several bulls from our fantastic Barcelona bull.  This is our 7th year using Barcelona, who is co-owned with Wolfe Farms, and is one of the most consistent bulls we have had, with super calving ease and great production.  Our own Arnold bull is a thick power bull that has given us the type of bulls and heifers we strive to produce.

 On our Purebred side we have a great mix of low birthweight bulls from our  KWA Mountain bull and Swantewitt Brave and really productive bulls from our super thick NAC Trustin bull.  We have a few power calves from our Swantewitt Cayenne bull and easy calving, thick calves from CMS Skyline.  The 2 year old bulls have been kept specifically for this sale based on a cut-off birthdate.  We are sure to have a bull that will fit your program and all are semen tested and guaranteed.

Our replacement heifer calves are some top heifers that represent all of the sire groups. All the calves have been vaccinated with Presponse HM, Express 5, Vision 8 with Somnugen and dewormed with Ivomec.  All the calves in the sale are halterbroke through a 5 day program. 

All bull videos available under "Galleries".

We are blessed to have three beautiful daughters whose hard work and dedication to this farm resulted in many awards showing cattle in local fairs and 4H over the years. Our family hosts a Bull and Female Production Sale in Mayerthorpe, AB on the second Saturday of March each year. Our goal is to provide the producer with a moderate frame, high production ranch bull raised under realistic cattle working conditions. All of the bulls and heifers offered at our sale are put through a 5 day halter breaking program which makes them easier to work with and helps to recognize potential problems in disposition. We definitely feel it is worth the effort for our customers.
