Hello Friends & Speckle Park enthusiasts! Its been awhile since I wrote in this blog. Lots has happened with our farming operation since then. First off, we decided to lease our cows for a year. We are so thankful and appreciate Michael & Karen Luciak of Spotlight Speckle Park at Glendon, AB for leasing our registered Speckle Park cows for 2017-2018. They got loaded into the trailers and made the haul to Glendon on Nov 15/17. A big thanks goes out to the fellas at the Minburn Hutterite Colony for hauling the cows there for us, we so appreciate everything they have done for us to help and support us since Ed's passing. It is refreshing to see that there are still many people out there that are willing to help out a neighbor! We will winter our calves and bulls but wont calve our herd out this year. It's time for our transition to occur. Sharon and Bradley just had a baby in June this year as well and this year they have to make the tough decisions regarding the farming business. They may decide to not continue on with the breed or continue in it but in a different fashion. They are wondering if it would be wise for them to keep their best ten cows and do flushes with these cows. Whatever they decide I wish them much success and happiness in their endeavors! It is time for me to step aside and find other passions that I have not been able to follow because of the time and physical constraints of running a cattle ranch. I am looking forward to my new life. I hope to stay in touch with all our loyal customers and our friends we have made thru the breed. This is the part of the cattle business that has been the most rewarding for me, finding the new lifelong friends! So this is not farewell, its see you later!

Welcome!

Hi, this is the first submission to our blog. We are going thru lots of changes on the farm right now. Our small herd of cattle is slowly growing and we will have 30 registered Speckle Park females to calf out this year and another 30 commercial females bred Speckle Park to calve out as well. I am slowly transitioning out of the cattle operation over a few years and Sharon and Bradley will be taking over. They are very eager, enthusiastic young ranchers who will excel in the industry and continue the success I and my late husband, Ed found within this breed. It has been a great journey and I feel fortunate to have been able to build our herd into the quality collection we have gained. I have to thank many people in the industry including all the early breeders and all our customers over the past years who have supported us so well and helped us bridge out and get cattle out into other breeders herds.

WE WILL BE ADDING STORIES HERE AS TIME GFOES BY AND TRY TO KEEP YOU UP TO DATE ON THE HAPPENINGS AND EVENTS AT MATTERS SPECKLE PARK!
