Welcome to Schweitzer Simmentals established in 1983 by Cameron and Myrna Schweitzer. We own and rent 2,000 acres of both grain and pasture land. Our cattle herd consists of 140 registered Simmental breeding stock.


A Little More Of Our History...
Cameron and I were married in 1982 and have two girls, Stacey and Ashley. Stacey and her husband Brodie McColl and their son Kolbie and daughter Sierra Dawn live in Redvers, Saskatchewan. Stacey is employed with John Deere and does all the warranty work for John Deere dealerships in 5 locations. Brodie is employed with Enbridge Pipelines. Our youngest daughter Ashley is married to Josh Berg and they live on an acreage outside of Chater, Manitoba with their daughter Kaelyn and son Jase. Ashley is a program secretary in ICU and Emergency at Brandon General Hospital, while Josh is an owner of Livingstone Landscaping in Brandon.

Our girls, their husbands, and their children are a big part of Schweitzer Simmentals. Whenever possible they come to the farm and help, whether it be weighing, tattooing, vaccinating or calving. They too are proud to have cattle of their own. Over the years our girls took an active part in 4-H and the Manitoba YCS program. They showed for numerous years at summer fairs, fall fair, and at our sales.

Our breeding program...

We strive to keep quality genetics in our herd by using Artificial Insemination along with quality walking herdsires and embryo transplants. In the past, we began consigning heifers in the West Central Simmental Assoc. and MSA sales. Our bulls have sold in the Brandon Bull sale, Great White North Sale, MSA sales and Douglas Test Station Sales.


Our marketing program...

Our emphasis is now on our mini-production female sale at the Harvest Hoedown Sale in Neepawa, and consignments to the Keystone Konnection Sale in Brandon, Manitoba. As well, we have our mini-production bull sale as part of the Premium Beef Bull sale held in Neepawa, Manitoba. We also sell females and bulls by private treaty out of our yard. The Simmental Breed is a people-oriented business and we have enjoyed meeting people from all over Canada and the U.S.A.

Feel free to contact us about any of our sale animals or just drop in for a visit. Coffee is always on!
