Welcome to Blair Athol. Established in 1882 our ranch has stood the test of time. We are located on the original homestead 4 miles west and 3 miles north of Arcola. Blair Athol has always been a mixed cattle and grain farm but in the mid 1990's shifted production to solely raising Hereford cattle. 2018 marks our 108th consecutive year of registering purebred Hereford cattle. Our ranch is now in its sixth generation of Lees and the future looks bright for generations to come.
We breed approximately 250 cows per year both polled and horned. Our annual female sale is one of the highlights of the fall sale run in Canada. Many great bulls and females have sold in the Blair-Athol Haroldson's and Friends Production Sale. We look forward to hosting our friends and customers again at the ranch October 21, 2018 for the Blair-Athol/ Haroldson's and Friends Sale! We'd also like to express our heartfelt gratitude for our successful bull sale last spring and welcome you to join us for the 14th Annual Wilson/Lees Bull Sale, April 6, 2018.
We live and breathe Hereford and are proud to have been recognized as the 2009 Canadian Western Agribition Premier Breeder at the National Hereford Show. We also exhibit at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado.
Visitors are always welcome at Blair Athol at the base of the scenic Moose Mountains. Plan to visit anytime.
