Our Story

Rocky Bar has been breeding some of the top quality beef cattle for the last 18 years.  We run 350 head of commercial cattle, Black Agnus crossed with  Limousin.  We have carefully chosen some of the best heifers and steers to put into our home-raised meat market.  

Nick and his father John combined their love for livestock and created Rocky Bar Ranch. In 1975 Nick married Sandra Shackleton and started their life together. In 1979 John DenBrok retired and Nick carried on the family farm as Rocky Bar Ranch LTD. Nick and Sandra have shown light horses and draft horses for many years. Their knowledge and experience has proven over the years with their display of hundreds of ribbons and trophies. They now share their love for ranching with their 7 grand children.

David & Traci Sandilands, own and operate DJS Livestock.  We have 2 wonderful boys Kage and Steele and a beautiful girl Kruse! Horses are in Traci's blood. She started barrel racing and driving horses at a young age and has never looked back. She graduated from Lakeland College in Vermilion, Alberta with two diplomas. One in Herd health and another in Animal Health Technology. She is a Certified Equine Massage Therapist as well as a Certified Equine Chiropractor. Traci met David Sandilands while going to school at Lakeland. David  was born and raised in Scotland! He immigrated over to Canada when he was 14 years of age.  David was a bullfighter for 16 years with some past accomplishments of fighting at the CFR for 5 years and Calgary Stampede for 6 years. With Dave retiring from bullfighting in 2012, Dave and Traci now travel to many hockey rinks in the winter and lots of barrel racings in the summer.
