‘Grasshill’ is a Family Farm focusing on the development of 'profitable genetics' - i.e.animals with the will to work and the type to sustain high production year after year.

How it Started with the Cows:

Originally started by Lloyd’s parents, Delmar & Mary Wicks, Grasshill has progressed from leasing its first cows (to establish which genetics it wanted to base the herd on), to the breeding of 5 Canadian Champion Producers, 10 EX cows, and exporting cattle to over 60 countries, among them top show and production winners in countries such as England, Ireland, and Australia.

ET work and bull sales both domestically and abroad have augmented heifer & milk sales, and early on led to our policy of limiting exposure in the show ring in the interests of protecting the herd’s long-held CHAH status.

Live Animals & Semen Available for Export
 A long-time breeder of purebred Holsteins, we have now  added their caprine counterpart— purebred Saanens.
The initial animals purchased have been carefully selected for production, type and pedigree, to provide a strong genetic base on which to build. One, for example, is the EX, *P, 2001 Grand Champion, Best Udder, Best in Breed Saanen doe at the Canadian East National  Show. We've also bred at least 5 Canadian Champ milk producers and several EX & VG bucks and does.

It is the 'balanced breeding approach' combination of these high conformation and production traits that has resulted in a deep pedigreed group of females and males from which we are now able to export both live animals, and frozen buck semen.  Demand for new bloodlines has been strong, and we look forward to exciting new possibilities working with others within this industry, both in Canada, and abroad!
