s Sunny Valley Simmentals

- Welcome -

Sunny Valley Simmentals was established in 1972 by Don & Bea Bates (Linda’s Parents). Over the next few years they built a herd of cows by purchasing heifers from elite breeders and also importing a few females. In 1986 when Linda & Wayne were married the herd was expanded. At that time they were all fullbloods.

For many years now we have been marketing females through various sales. First with the Hanley Hi Lite group, then with Prairie Partners and then at Simmsational for the last 24 years. We have consigned to the Agribition sale for over 40 years. We consign females to the Border City Simmental Sale in Lloydminster and are part of the elite Friday Night Lights Sale in Olds, AB since their inception.

We hold our own bull and female sale at the beginning of March each spring in Saskatoon at Saskatoon Livestock Sales. The bull sale has been a great experience for us. It has put us more in tune with the commercial industry. We are all in this together and must raise functional cattle that are what the market demands. We have been there through some good years and some not so good years. But we have always been there promoting what we believe in, Simmental Cattle. Our herd has changed over the years as we strive to produce cattle that will work for the cattle industry. The addition of Red & Black Simmental has been a great asset to the industry and has helped to establish Simmental as a leader in the commercial industry.

Tyler, his wife, Erin, their son, Dax, and daughter, Reese, have started their own farm yard just 3 miles south of the home yard.

Amanda and her late husband, Kyle, moved a house on the quarter north of the home yard. Amanda works full time in Saskatoon at Potash Corp.
