Arrow Creek Simmentals has been breeding quality Simmental cattle for over 25 years. We started by purchasing traditional purebreds and then built a program around polled Simmentals with several of the original herd sires being purchased from AWL Simmentals.
The herd has changed over the past 10 years to a red and black program. Our herd consists of 150 registered red and black purebreds and a small group of full Fleckvieh females.
The HAAS G217 cow that was purchased from HAAS Ranch moved us forward in the industry and then the purchase of Wheatland Red Teddy 457P in 2006 created a lot of interest at the farm. The combination of Red Teddy and G217 have produced several herd sires for the industry and produced some super females for ACS and for other breeders. Our program has used a lot of Wheatland herd sires over the past five years and the influence of Wheatland Lady 902J can be seen in several of their pedigrees.
Our walking herd sires include Wheatland Red Teddy 457P, Wheatland Red Ace 747T, MFR Drifter 804U, Wheatland Headline 872U, Wheatland Cruzer 995W. Semen on several of our bulls and sons that have sold through our annual Rebels of the West Bull and Female Sale can be purchased through Bouchard Livestock International.
We have also started a small herd of Red Angus cattle and are currently breeding approximately 30 females. This gives us the ability to supply Red Angus and true F1 hybrid herd sires as an option to our commercial producers.
Our Bull Sale, "The Rebels of the West Bull and Female Sale" takes place the second Sunday in March at Heartland Livestock in Virden Manitoba,
We also consign females to the Canadian Western Agribition Simmental Sale as well as the Shades of the Prairies Sale in Brandon, Manitoba.
