Our Registered Hereford and Angus cattle are marketed under the name Gemstone Cattle Company. These cattle along with our commercial herd are pastured on dry and irrigated pasture. Water for irrigation is sourced through the Eastern Irrigation District from the Bow River and significantly increases the per acre production of our land base. Much of our crop production is forage based to support our cattle program including alfalfa/grass hay, barley, corn, and triticale. We also grow canola, timothy and alfalfa seed to enhance our rotation. Our diversified operation also includes backgrounding and finishing cattle in our feedlot.
Here is a little more about our operation – hope you enjoy our picture gallery.
