Oakview Simmentals is a family owned operation located near the Pembina Valley in Southern Manitoba. Todd’s Great grandfather began farming on the home site in 1913 and while the breed of cattle changed from Horned Herefords to Simmentals over the years the presence and importance of cattle never has. Oakview Simmentals officially began in 2004 when we purchased a herd of Purebred Red Simmental cows and combined them with Danna’s Full Fleck females. Over the years we have shown extensively at local summer shows, Manitoba Livestock Expo and attended Agribition. We have continued to build our herd and now calve 250 in Jan/Feb and started a fall calving program in 2015 with 35 cows. 
Our herd consists of polled and horned full-flecks, fullbloods as well as polled red Simmentals. We strive to produce females that milk well, have excellent feet and legs and produce powerful replacements and thick bulls. We have been using AI extensively in our herd and flush a handful of females every year.

We have made some exciting additions to our herd sire line up in the past couple of years with the arrival of the Wheatland Current Affair 494B, WFL Outlaw 4B and most recently Skors Missoula 286D on the red side.  On the Full Fleck side FGAF Jacuzzi 001C and FGAF Circuit 084C joined our performance polled Fairview Zeus 57Z herd bull. 

We are very excited for the impact KOP Ms Bengie 6P, (most well known as Kop Crosby’s mom) is making in our red herd.  The first daughters on our farm are hard at work producing very functional and powerful calves.  Rolling Acres Red Fern has settled in well to our donor program as her second set of bull calves will sell in our 2018 bull sale and a fancy polled first calf heifer is working hard on her calf.  anticipating the January 2016 arrival of her embryos sired by Houston.  We couldn’t be prouder of DLH Miss Pixie 6P, the foundation female that we have built our Full Fleck herd around. We now have more than 10 of her natural and embryo daughters walking our pastures not to mention the countless granddaughters.  We adore their consistency in producing thick powerful calves.

Our Bulls are marketed in March as part of the Oakview, Perkin and Triple R Simmental Bull sale held in Brandon, MB. We sell a group of bred’s and the occasional elite open heifer at the Pembina Triangle Simmental Association Sale held in November in Cypress River, MB.  Furthermore, we offer packages of open and bred commercial as well as purebred females off the yard. We look forward to meeting and visiting with you and welcome all visitors to stop by and take a look through our herd.
