Triple A Herefords is a cattle ranch southwest of Moose Jaw, just past Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum.

The fourth generation cattle ranch currently run by Murray, Bridget and Luke Andrews has been in the family on the outskirts of Moose Jaw for “longer than I know” said Bridget Andrews Tuesday at the Canadian Western Agribition. “A long time.”

“We’re fourth generation because it was Murray’s grandmother and then Murray’s parents and then us and now it’s our son,” she said.

Andrews said that she’s been coming with her family to exhibit their cattle at Agribition in Regina for 20 years now.

“The reason we come is to promote our genetics to fellow breeders that are here, but also to international people,” she said. “It’s also a way of linking yourself to the commercial industry; a lot of our commercial customers, we see them here, so it’s a marketing strategy.”

Andrews said that Triple A Herefords has had success marketing its herd’s genetics in Canada, as well as internationally into Ireland, the United States and Australia through embryo and semen sales. “They’re sourcing genetics for their own seed stock,” she said.
