welcome to lucky springs farms
Lucky Springs Farms is owned and operated by Len & Sally Songer and their children, Kristen, Katie & Jim. We run 100 head of quality Polled Hereford, Shorthorn and F1 hybrid “Cherri-Red” cows and grow 1500 acres of oats, barley, rye and forage crops. Our yearling bulls are for sale each spring by private treaty. We also market semen, embryos, prospect calves, breeding stock and commercial recipient females for transplant programs. We exhibit our cattle annually at the Calgary Stampede, Edmonton Farmfair and Canadian Western Agribition. The picture below was taken for the farm's 50th Anniversary. We are located just outside of the town of Rocky Mountain House in Alberta, Canada.
We are glad you could stop by and hope you enjoy browsing around our site. We hope you like what you see. Please feel free to contact us for more information or even better, come for a visit in person. The coffee is alway on!
The Lucky Springs homestead (late 1950's)
View of the farm on its 50th anniversary (2001)
Shown above is the homestead of Jim and Thelma Songer in the late fifties. They came from Riverhurst, Saskatchewan in 1951 to Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. They milked cows, raised pigs and ran a herd of commercial Hereford-Shorthorn cows. The dairy herd was sold in 1967 and the first purebred Herefords were purchased in the early 1970s. Shorthorns were added in 1999 with the purchase of a purebred heifer from Bill & Edith Boake of Acme, Alberta. Our family ties to Shorthorn cattle go back to the 1870's when Joseph Parkinson, Sally's great-great grandfather, bred the first cow to enter the Canadian Shorthorn Herd Book, a roan female known as Ada.
