ASHBACHER ANGUS   ...  Family Run Ranching Operation ! .........

ASHBACHER ANGUS is a family run operation consisting of Darrel and Wendy, and their children Zane, Kelly, Clint, Echo and Erin.

LIVING IN A LAND OF EXTREMES, Ashbacher Angus selects cattle that offer predicable, efficient genetics, critical in maintaing our bottom line  ...  For 30 years Ashbacher Angus has been striving to produce efficiency through structurally sound, very maternal, unpampered no nonsense cattle .

WITH THE QUIET DISPOSITIONS, low maintenance, and moderate framed cattle, Ashbacher Angus produces, we believe our Red & Black Angus can bring quality improvements to your herd  ...  Our operation is a forage based plan, low input cattle bred with maternal strengths in mind  ...  Our cows need to calve on their own, raise the calf, and breed back within a 63 day period, all while dealing with the harshness of the Alberta landscape.

WE FOCUS ON MATERNAL TRAITS  that make Angus cows stand out above the rest  ...  Our cows have got to be low maintenace, easy keeping, well uddered and possessing a mild disposition  ...  If they don't have spring of rib and depth of body with an ease of fleshing ability, simple put "she won't be around here"  ...  We expect our cows to be low input, calving ease, and prolific  ...  to be able to breed back year after year, therefore having longevity, is a must.

OUR GOAL with the cow herd is to breed problem free cattle that adapt to a variety of environments and are able to raise a big sturdy calf for the fall.
