Adams Ranch Ltd. is a 3rd generation family agriculture company that celebrated it’s 50th anniversary on March 31, 2016.
The origin of the operation started in the 1930’s with W.G. (Pete) Adams farming in Birch Hills, Saskatchewan. In 1954 at the age of 40, Pete moved to Czar, Alberta with the objective of becoming involved in the cattle business.
Following completion of a B. Sc. in Agriculture and a M. Sc. in Agricultural Economics, Trenton Peter Adams relocated to the farm and the company expanded into cattle feeding. By the late 1990’s the company was feeding 25,000 head of company owned cattle. In 1998, Peter began to change directions and liquidated the feedlot operations.
In 2000, Trenton Michael Adams joined the company after completing a business degree and is now President and COO of the company.
Today, Adams Ranch feeds and backgrounds both sides of 30,000 head of cattle in custom feedlots in Alberta and other jurisdictions as market conditions warrant. In addition the company runs grass yearling on our 50,000 acres of grassland on 3 ranches in southern Alberta east of Drumheller.
We are excited to continue our support of the Canadian Cattle feeding industry now and into the future.
