Come for a visit I will make sure you see the cows.

 

LOCKFARMS  is located North of  Macklin Sask.  6 miles North up highway  #17  and one mile east.MAP 001

We have been in operation since 1980, when we started with a small herd of Hereford cows.   We were very attracted to the docility and   durability of this breed.   Eventually some purebreds were purchased.  As we move forward the straight bred  commercial herd numbers around 350 and our purebred herd has grown to include Horned Hereford  and Polled Hereford genetics , it numbers around 50 elite cows. Excitement in the embryo transplant area  is increasing and we will have et calves born again in 2016.

Our annual bull sale  THE PREMIER HEREFORD BULL SALE   is held the first Monday of Feb  each year  ( 2018 SALE WILL BE HELD FEB 5TH ) at the Lloydminster exhibition grounds Lloydminster sk. Other contributors to this sale are Ayrey Hereford Farm, Ace Herefords and Davies Ranch . Let us know  your and we will put you on our mailing list for a catalogue   email us your address  at

The Black Angus  cattle are raised and managed by Jonathan Lock . He graduated from the university of Saskatchewan in 2006 and purchased a bred heifer.  The next year he struck a deal with Ivan Eggen to purchase his young cows with calves at  side. Since that beginning he has grown his herd to around 50 excellent  cows.  The bulls are marketed as two year olds  through the PRIDE OF THE PRAIRIE BULL SALE  in Lloydminster each March and by private treaty. Jonathan is  also marketing females  in the  TOUCH OF CLASS Angus sale each December held in Saskatoon . We can  supply you with a catalogue, let us  know.

Our operation includes grain and we annually seed around 6000 acres of peas, canola, hard wheat, soft white wheat, oats , barley and in the last couple of years have tried our hand at flax

Our family  consists of  Kimberly, her husband Brian Thomas and sons Colton and Blake , who live at Innisfail Alberta.  Jonathan  whom farms with us and lives 3 miles from the home farm.  Our youngest Amy lives  in Lumsden with her two sons Austin and Liam and works as an LPN in Regina. .
