Home About Beef at Home Classroom Contact

Kindergarten and Grade 1

The history of Alberta is deeply entangled with the history of ranching in the west. Since the first cattle were brought into southern Alberta, the pristine rivers, wide-open prairie and stunning mountains provided an ideally-suited region in which to raise beef. 

Fast forward more than 200 years, and you’ll find that Alberta is the home of beef in Canada. With over 40% of the cattle, 70% of the feedlot capacity and 70% of the processing capacity in Canada, it’s likely that the majority of the beef you encounter is Alberta beef. While not all cattle find their start in Alberta, if they’re finished and processed here, it’s Alberta beef.
