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:

We are always on the lookout for quality Liner 56U daughters, especially if they have Springcreek Tara 7P in their pedigree. 69Y was our choice of the cows at the Springcreek 2017 Fall Female Sale. We were pleased to be able to add her to our program. Her 2017 bull calf was Springcreek Denali 21E who sold in the 2018 Springcreek Bull Sale for $46,000 to Doll Simmentals, ND. We purchased Denali's Canadian semen interest and look forward to the influence he and his dam will have on our program.

Our Percentage Cattle Project:

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.

In recent years we have been raising Percentage cattle, bred with a plan, to produce bulls and females with profit potential for commercial producers.
