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 350 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 some new AI genetics that have been making waves in the Simmental industry in both Fullbloods and Purebreds.

We have new Fullblood genetics in  our proven, polled heifer bull, Keato Pld Director's Cut. This is our 8th 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 Brink, JNR Cool Cat and Calibre bulls are thick power bulls that have given us growth and performance for profitability.

On our Purebred side, we have a great mix of low birthweight bulls from our KWA Mountain bull and Swantewitt Brave with really productive bulls from our super thick NAC Trustin bull and red power calves from Swantewitt Cayenne.

 We are sure to have a bull that will fit your program and all are semen tested and guaranteed. The 2 year old bulls are kept specifically for our sales based on birthdate.

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.

We are blessed to have three beautiful daughters (and now one granddaughter too!) 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.
