Simpson Ranching Limited is a family-owned and operated cow calf ranch and mixed grain farm which was first established in the Alberta foothills in 1956. Since that time the ranch has expanded its original holdings and its farming operation in order to run up to 1,000 Hereford cows. Daily operations are guided by 4 key pillars;
- The Operations Manual describes daily, weekly and monthly tasks for the entire year, across all parts of the business and includes detailed descriptions of equipment use and maintenance, facility setup, pasture use and records and water and well locations and data.
- The Environmental Health and Safety Manual contains best in class safety policies, procedures, assessments and reporting templates and guides daily, weekly and monthly safety meetings or assessments.
- The Herd Health Protocol dictates how each individual animal is treated throughout its life and is informed by best practices in animal health diagnosis and treatment, vaccination protocols, proper and safe use of antibiotics and animal welfare measures.
- Detailed individual animal records are all digital and include all health treatments, birth weight, wean weight, dam and offspring, and date back to 1986.
The combination of the these 4 tools, along with our team of dedicated and skilled people make operations at Simpson Ranching run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Having celebrated its 60th year of operation in 2016, Simpson Ranching has a strong reputation in the cattle industry for top quality steers and heifers.
