Our interest in Angus cattle began in 1990 when our 2 sons Nathan and Alex began to show interest in the cattle. The Angus breed had a strong youth movement, the cattle were highly proven performers and there was a ready market for the progeny. Females were purchased from Farrer angus, Calleen angus and D.S.K. studs. Sires used included Trend 315, Ext, 036 and Alberta Traveler 416.
Descendants of these cows are still in the herd today, with sire selection based on producing sires with natural thickness, while still maintaining frame score, and females who are both fertile and functional. Sires previously include Right Time 338, KCF Bennett Performer, Right Way 781, Sitze 458N & SAV Thunderbird and HF Tiger.
