Les and Karen Holloway are the proud producers of purebred Herefords raised east of Castor, Alta.

The pair recently hosted their 10th consecutive Hereford bull sale on Feb. 11 where they served about 120 people lunch before opening the sale to eager bidders.

The Hollways operate on 27 sections of farmland which is mainly overseen by son-in-law Anthony Plett who also does mechanic work and 400 head of purebred Hereford cows to keep them busy.

“I do enjoy growing the crops and fighting the weather and everything you have to do in the market in order to make things work. It makes you scratch your head at certain points but we do enjoy it,” said Les.

Four other people work there.
