The former Sun Rise Simmentals Cowherd:

Purchased by the Lowes Family of Ja-Lyn Farms, and Erik and Melissa Pateman of Pateman Ag Ltd., in 2013, and now being very successfully managed and promoted as JP Cattle Co. of McCauley, MB.

We retained the 2013 calf crop and a few flush cows as a retirement project that has kept us very actively involved in the Simmental business.

Our "Retirement Project" Foundation Cows

The following are the flush cows we retained:

Percentage Cattle:

In recent years we have been raising Percentage cattle, bred with a plan, to produce bulls and females with profit potential for commercial producers. We have used well-known and proven Angus bulls on our heifers and young cows. This has resulted in the production of a product we liked and found to be very marketable to the beef industry. We intend to continue producing these high quality percentage cattle as part of our breeding program using the same strong criteria as used in the purebred program.
