BUCK LAKE RANCH PUREBRED ANGUS COW HERD
Buck Lake Ranch began breeding purebred Black Angus cattle in 2006. It made an initial purchase of 4 bred cows and 10 bred heifers from Grant Hirsche of Alberta. Grant sold pick of his herd of old line Canadian genetics. This purchase was followed with a pick of the 4 best heifers from the B.C. Tafika Angus herd of Wayne Hughes. Then 7 heifers were bought at a production sale of Peak Dot Ranch. Further purchases were made at production sales, dispersals and by private treaty from other top Angus breeders including: Stevenson Basin Angus, Blevins Angus and Sitz Angus in Montana; SCR in Nebraska; MVF in Manitoba; NBA and UBAR in B.C.; Justamere and Soo Line in Saskatchewan; Val Townsand’s Lone Star, and last but not least from Hamilton Farms in Alberta. Presently about 80 cows in the herd are purchases from other quality breeders while about a 100 cows and heifers are home born.
In the genetics of the purchased cattle, strong production weight gain and maternal quality was acquired with attention given to proven A.I. Sires. Buck Lake breeds mostly from top A.I. sires. Legendary blood lines from the cows sires and their maternal sires include:
