“generation after generation, same trusted brand”
 
Welcome to Bar Pipe
The Cross family has been selling quality purebred Hereford bulls and females to ranchers in western Canada and the USA since 1953.

Our goal is to produce breeding stock that works in today’s commercial cattle industry. We blend cowboy practicality with 21st century science to achieve that goal!

We run about 225 purebred cows in the foothills southwest of Calgary, Alberta. We calve our cows out on pasture in April/May and include winter grazing as part of our forage management plan.

Like many ranching operations our help is limited, so we try to run our program in a practical fashion, just as our ranch customers try to do.

Bar Pipe is enrolled in the Total Herd Evaluation program of the Canadian Hereford Association. We collect birth, weaning, yearling and mature cow weights  and we collect yearling ultrasound data. We’ve measured these traits for generations, our EPDs are based on facts not guesses.

We sell most of our cattle at the buyer’s convenience, by private treaty. Bulls will also be offered at the Calgary Bull Sale and the Medicine Hat Bull Sale in March 2015.
What’s New

The ranch is located in the foothills southwest of Calgary, Alberta a short 45 minute drive from the Calgary International Airport.

 

We welcome your visit to see our cattle and learn more about our program.

79% of our cows calved in the first cycle and we’ve had great weather for pasture calving.


We are extremely happy with our two new herdsires, Kootenay and Cracker Jack, their calves look very promising.

Looking forward to the AJHA Show in Wetaskiwin
