There’s no question the historic OH Ranch is a special place. With the Calgary Stampede as a steward of the land, it remains a working cattle ranch with a remarkable history stretching back more than 130 years. But it’s not just that history that the Stampede strives to preserve on the 8,000 acre property along the Highwood River west of Longview.
It’s not uncommon for ranch manager Ken Pigeon and his wife Deb to spot a variety of wildlife on the land. The cold snap in January had many animals making their way a bit closer to the ranch buildings to forage for food.
