If you’re looking for high quality, great performance cattle, you’ve come to the right place. Located south of Castor, AB Godfrey Ranch would like to introduce Irish Black™ and Irish Red™ Cattle to Canada's Agricultural industry. In 2009 we decided to import some Irish Black™ Cattle due to rave reviews by other Ranchers, we were also looking for a low maintenance but high performance breed to incorporate into our commercial herd. Since then we have been more than happy with the decision that we made to import Irish Black™ Cattle into Canada from Colorado. Irish Black™ were genetically developed over forty years with forward thinking, progressive breeding of an entirely closed herd. This controlled breeding program was strictly regulated to develop top beef performance traits required by commercial cattlemen.
At Godfrey Ranch we have used full blood Irish Black™ bulls on our commerial Angus cows and have been more than pleased with the results.
As the cattle market gets stronger and the demand for high perfomance cattle is getting higher we have incorporate d Irish Red™cattle into our breeding program as of 2013. We will be having our first crop of Irish Red™ calves 2014.
