Breeding Bulls for Grass Farmers

Our Herdsires produce cattle that we believe will help ranchers be more profitable. They were not selected because they did well in a show barn, or because some one with a big marketing budget pushed them on us.

We breed cattle that work in the real commercial world . We do not multiply the most popular genetics of the day. We select cattle based on function and phenotype, moderate-framed productive cattle that will last a long time, and thereby provide the greatest net return to ranchers.

Stacking these genetics will result in owning cattle that can be finished solely on forages and excel in a minimum-input environment.

Our sires represent a desire for balancing the maternal equation. No bull can do everything right. Cow longegvity and maximum yearling weight performance are antagonistic traits. Selecting bulls for carcass traits and yearling weights leads to sacrificing maternal quality and increases frame size in the cowherd (frame-score "creep").

We have chosen to focus on genetics that can create the profitable cowherd factory from which you can later cross with terminal sires to add hybrid vigor performance and the "flavour of the day" in hide colour. Doing this will create a functional, long-living cowherd that will wean calves at the highest efficiency in your commercial ranch environment.

Moderate - Maternal - Easy Calving - Easy Fleshing

We believe that focusing on these traits has the most Financial Impact on the cow-calf producer's bottom line.


Edie Creek Angus is grateful for the opportunity to have purchased the remaining semen inventory from John Setrakov of Hillfire Angus, Meadow Lake, SK.

This exceedingly rare semen will be used in our growing embryo transfer program on cows like OCC Karen 759N, Crowfoot Lady Erica 5728R, XO Crowfoot Rev Rose 8816U to create genetic opportunities to strengthen your herds and ours.

Some of the semen we acquired includes: OCC Joker 620J, OCC Hunter 928H, OCC Honesty 962H, QAS Traveler 23-4, Traveler 3173 GDAR and OCC Legacy 839L.
