Bennville Farm

Bennville Equine & Bennville Acres

2021 marks a very special year for us . On April 20th 1981,40 years ago we came as immigrants from Germany to  Canada. Both our families had  been farming back home for several generations .We were tenant farmers  working in partnership with Ferdi's parents on  Gut Steinhaus and Amtmannsscherf close to Odenthal in the Rheinisch- Bergischer Kreis. High land prices and limited availabilty  of farms for sale back home were the main reason for us to  come to Canada.  We were always grateful for the support of our parents, who would travel countless times to help with planting, harvesting, taking care of grandchildren, house and meals for many years.  Slowly and steady we developed from a small dairy farm into a larger cash crop operation with side lines in the Limousin cattle breed as well as a second operation with our Equine program. As most other families we have seen many ups and downs over the years. Today  two of our children with their family have taken over most of the farming operation  with us more in the background, giving helping hands where needed.

It will also allow me to spend some more time on a different project. Through the last year I have created a small , comfortable, separate apartment available for rent for the visitor who is looking for some quiet ,relaxing days in a country setting away from the rush of daily life.

Farm holidays on a working fulltime operation should be attractive especially for  many of our farm colleagues from Germany.

This year also marks 20 years of bull testing at Bennville Limousin. Having our background in the dairy industry, we  firmly believe in the value of collecting as much data as possible in order to compare and step ahead in breed improvement. We have come a long way with our small herd of females and proudly offer a group of well developed bulls and females  for sale every year.

          

A Tribute to  Bennville Pina Colada AFA25P  

 We are very proud of  having Pina Colada added to the CLA Elite Dam List. Her EPD's for weaning weight, milk and docility, combined with below average for birth weight and raising a calf each year for the last six years has earned her the honors.

Please feel free to check on Pina and her family (the Cayleys) under foundation cows, as we have currently 11 outstanding members of that family in our herd.


One proud step up for Pina. She has been awarded the Super Elite Dam status in 2017

To our valued customers a big THANK  YOU for your continued support !
