2024-Lee & Lisa Simanton-Crestomere, AB

Lee and Lisa are the third generation at Crestomere Holsteins, a family dairy farm where they work alongside Lee’s parents and raise their two young children, Ava and Easton. Crestomere Holsteins, milking around 100 cows, transitioned to a modern robotic barn in 2018, a big change moving from the old 67 tie-stall barn. The couple has a passion for cows with a focus on cow comfort, longevity, and high-quality conformation, essential for both barn productivity and show ring success.

Their passion for show cows is evident as they regularly showcase their heifers and cows at shows in Alberta and the west. They have also competed on national and international stages, including the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin, and the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Lee oversees the daily operations at Crestomere Holsteins, while Lisa, a dairy nutrition consultant, brings her expertise to both her off-farm work and their farm management
