  • About us
    Proud of our 67 Years as a Family Farm

    Lucky Springs Farms is located just outside of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada and is owned and operated by Len & Sally Songer and their three 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 shows around western Canada. The picture at right was taken for the farm's 50th Anniversary.

  • History
    Established in 1951

    Jim and Thelma Songer, Len's parents, 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.
