2022-Lee and Ashley Eastmond- Mortlach SK
Wheatland Cattle Company, operated by Lee and Ashley Eastmond, is located at Mortlach,
Saskatchewan. Over the years our operation has changed from being strictly cow/calf, to backgrounding
and in 2017 to taking our calves out to finish. We also offer custom feeding, silaging and bale hauling. On
our operation we are always challenging ourselves to become better, think outside the box and ignite
changes within the operation. Developing the feedlot and taking our calves to finish has catalyzed our
operation to where it is today.
In 2020, we recognized that consumers had a desire for quality, locally-produced beef, and were
growing more comfortable with online shopping and direct delivery so we pulled up chairs around the
kitchen table and began formulating a plan.
Following considerable research and strategizing, we launched “Kattle Kountry Beef” with Lee’s
parents and haven’t looked back. In August 2021 we purchased a local butcher shop and rebranded as
Butcher Block on the Prairie. This acquisition made our operation fully vertically integrated.
The philosophy of “from our family farm to your fork” is the very essence Kattle Kountry Beef.
Every roast, steak and package of ground beef can be traced back to the animal’s birth on our farm. We
are VBP+ (Verified Beef Production) Certified, upholding the highest standards in animal health, welfare,
environmental respect, and sustainability.
