Welcome to Pretty View Stock Farm Ltd., home of Ivan and Phyllis Olynyk.

We specialize in researching, studying and practically applying innovative concepts in livestock production and marketing.

Our goal at Pretty View Stock Farm is to examine new ideas and concepts on a continual basis at our private research farm. We develop and adapt these ideas to a “practical, hands-on way” for Western Canadian conditions.

We are also dealers for Imperial Seed, Northstar Seed and Dow Seeds.
Please browse our site to find out more about our see and services, including our rental of our corn planters.

We have a proven history in the livestock business

In 1980, we established our farm on a 90 acre stubble field. We raised leaf cutter bees and grew alfalfa seed, as well as grains and oilseeds.

Our first group of (commercial) cattle arrived in 1993. A year later, we purchased 35 Red Angus cows from the well-known Six Mile Red Angus Ranch. Having grown up with Black Angus, we couldn’t help ourselves and started a Black Angus herd with cows from Crescent Creek Angus.

In 1998, the major event at Pretty View became our Annual Bull and Female Sale, held the first Sunday of April on the farm.

A major change happened on June 30, 2009 when we sold the farm and cattle, and we moved a few miles down the road where we are located today. Look for the big blue sign on #9 and stop by any time.

The coffee is always on.
