About Brylor Ranch
Brylor Ranch is a pioneer Red Angus operation in Canada. The Mackenzie family brought the first Red Angus cattle herd to Canada in 1962 and have maintained a high quality selection & breeding standard ever since.
The Brylor cow herd consists of a large number of cattle descending from our foundation herd sire, Red Brylor Dynastar 19S, now deceased. Many of the cattle are located at the ranch near Pincher Creek, Alberta, while others are managed in co-operator herds. 80% of the females are bred to top A.I. sires featured by Brylor Semen Sales, then turned out for clean-up with the Brylor herd sires. The cows calve from the end of January through the end of March. Embryos and semen available. Brylor holds an annual female production sale each fall and bull sale each spring.
Brylor Ranch History
The ranch name ‘Brylor’ is derived from combining the names of Mark and Edna Mackenzie’s two sons, Bryan and Lorne. Mark was a school teacher for 30 years in Pincher Creek and is now retired. Edna was a nurse at the Pincher Creek Hospital. Lorne and his wife, Robin, live in Lethbridge where he is the sales manager for a steel company, and Robin is a High School teacher. As for us, Bryan & Sherry, we married in 1997. Bryan works full-time on the ranch and Sherry is an Animal Health Technician, now at home with our children.
Brylor has a land base of 800 acres located south of Pincher Creek. Currently we have 100 purebred cows and have recently expanded to include two cooperator herds. We are members of both the Canadian Angus Association and the Red Angus Association of America. We are also active members of the Canadian Red Angus Promotional Society.
