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 200 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.


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.
