Alongside with our purebred operation, we run a large commercial herd. Our commercial herd is mainly Charolais, with a shot of Gelbvieh influence. The cows are bred to home raised Charolais bulls.

With 300+ commercial cows, we have no time for poor uddered, poor footed, hard doing females that need to be pampered. Our females must milk to be kept in the herd. If a female is not producing, she is culled immediately. No questions asked.

Our calving begins March 1 st and finishes the end of April. Pairs are grazed around home until mid October. This is when the calves are weaned and put into our own feedlot. The steers are fed until mid January when they are sold to a feedlot in Southern Ontario. We finish all our heifers.

For this reason we strive to raise high performing cattle that finish easily. Carcass quality is a must. With the cattle market so variable, quality is a must.
