Introduction To Silverhills Lowline CattleBrowse Our New Brochure
Silverhills Lowline Cattle began with the purchase of a Lowline heifer from Saskatchewan. Princess was born on October 8, 1998. She is the second calf, and the first heifer in North America to be born to its' natural mother. Her British Columbian debut in the fall of '99 was an absolute success as have all the showings of all our cattle to date. Princess's offspring can be found at home, grazing to their heart's content on our small farm in the scenic Mabel Lake valley, north of Lumby, BC.
We, at Silverhills Lowline, are excited about the potential of Lowlines in the beef industry.
Embryos from our females are available as well as top of the line semen from one of our handsome bulls. Live animals are now available for purchase. Since acquiring Princess, we have expanded our herd to include
surrogate females, a successful embryo program as well as several live births of heifers and bulls. After 18 years of fun and learning and hard work, we are proud to announce we have
many animals on the hoof, have enjoyed wonderful steaks and meats for a few years now and now we have family packages of beef available locally in limited quantity.
We Now Have Animals For Sale!!
With our program being such a success of the past few years, we have come to a position where we now have live animals for sale. Here is the animals for sale list to include heifers, breed cows, bull calfs and so on so please keep posted for what we have available! Remember, our cattle stand out...just a little.

The City of Vernon & Polson Park host the MS Walk on an annual basis, this year being their 19th. On the 15th anniversary of the walk there was an unusual master of ceremonies on the first 1Km of the Walk. Up front and center was Lil' Guy, a wonderful bull from Silverhills Lowlines. Lil' Guy and his human, Kevin, led the start of the walk much to the amazement and excitement of the crowd! It was like he was born to lead and this was such a worthy cause. The children, young and old, all enjoyed watching this magnificent bull and Kevin march in step with each other, while other participants kept pace. The pictures speak volumes as to how low keyed and adaptable these cattle truly are! It was a fun day had by all!
Each year the IPE: Interior Provincial Exhibition & Stampede select a charity to sponsor and endorse. The IPE honored the Vernon MS Society by selecting them as the charity for that year. It was with this theme, Lil' Guy & Silverhills Lowlines were able to participate. The park does have a dog ordenance, yet when asked about having a bull on the grounds, no response was given. Guess they just did not cover that in the rule book! Pictures courtesy of Vernon Morning Star, Roger Knox Photographer/Reporter.

In close attendance you will find us, Laurie and Kevin, managers and caregivers. Both of us have found this business adventure to be exciting, rewarding and a lot less challenging than we had anticipated. We have come to know each animal, the
temperament and breeding prospects. We are extremely pleased with our results so far. We are often found at agricultural events across Canada promoting public and rancher awareness of this unique and extremely viable product. We are proud to be a member of The Canadian Lowline Cattle Association.
