||Welcome to Lauron Red Angus!
We are a family run operation, Ron and Laurie Hunter and our three sons, Jared, Ryan, and Travis. We are located 10 miles east of the town of Didsbury about 45 minutes north of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on the land Ron's family homesteaded.
Lauron Red Angus was founded in 1984 with a small herd of commercial and pedigreed females purchased from Laurie's parents' Alalta Red Angus herd and select female auctions. Many of the original cow families such as Blackbird, Dalmistu, Missy, Morojiti, and Kuruba are still prominent in the herd today, numbering 200 breeding matrons.
Our focus is on our females. We strive for perfect udders and feet, fertility, longevity, disposition, and easy doing cattle. They are raised without creep feed on native pastures, and take advantage of swath grazing during the winter months.
A strict culling regime ensures a strong maternal base which, in turn, enables us to provide profitable bulls for our customers. We host a bull sale each April, and consign females to prominent Angus sales in Alberta. Of course, animals are also for sale privately off the farm.
Any questions, just give us a call or drop us an e-mail. We'd love to hear from you.
