We began raising cattle in 2018. After extensive research into breeds and management styles we settled on the Speckle Park breed, a new, Canadian breed of beef cow, and a breed growing in herd size and reputation around the world. The breed was developed from three heritage breeds - Aberdeen Angus, Shorthorn, and White Park. They are well adapted to our hot summers and cold winters; they aren't pure black like Angus so they reflect the sun, and grow a good thick coat in winter. They've also been bred to produce well-marbled beef on pasture alone.
We're looking forward to our first calves to be born on the farm next year.
