Northwest Cattle Company

Fred Stimson ran the North West Cattle Company from 1881 to 1902 in the Calgary area. As Stimson slowly added buildings, corrals and fences the North West Cattle Company soon became the Bar U Ranch, one of the most successful ranches in Alberta’s history. From 1902 – 1925 the Ranch became famous for breeding excellent cows and horses while under the direction of George Lane and his helpers.
