WELCOME TO MILNE RANCH
Home of Purebred Gelbvieh Cattle and Registered Quarter Horses
The Milne Ranch is located just south of Fairview Alberta along the banks of the mighty Peace River. This family operated ranch has been producing Gelbvieh seed stock since 1972 and has just been designated a Ranching Heritage Breeder by the American Quarter Horse Association.
The acres of natural grasslands have afforded ample opportunity to grow kids, cattle and cow horses. Harold and Bev's daughter Olivia with Husband Chad are grain farming and raising Purebred/Commercial Gelbvieh cattle. Look for them at Koziak Land and Cattle, Lamont, AB. Son Thomas (T.J.) and wife Acacia from the Brownvale, AB. are breeding AQHA performance horses with an emphasis on Team Roping. It has been a good fit with T.J.'s Farrier Service.
The cattle are marketed through various breed association sponsored events and the Milne's Annual Better Beef Bull Sale in April. All the bulls are polled and are represented in both black and red hide color. The Milne's believe in a cowherd that is trouble free and easy to maintain. Sale cattle are selected on performance, conformation and calving ease. Their bulls are developed on a high protein ration that allows for maximum growth and a trouble free future. All bulls are semen tested prior to sale. In the spring of 2019 it was decided to move to May calving over the 2019 & 2020 breeding seasons which will allow for yearling sales in 2021 followed by long yearling sales in 2022.
Horse sales are by private treaty. While the focus is on competitive Team Roping horses the Milne Ranch horses have enjoyed many career path's from reiners to barrels to all around ranch horses.
