Welcome to

Thorlakson Feedyards Inc. was started in 1970, as a small custom cattle feedlot and has grown over the past 50 years to a current capacity of 18,000 head.

We pride ourselves in being at the forefront of innovative cattle feeding.

50 years of Agriculture in Airdrie

Over the past 50 years, this business and family has grown and diversified into mixed farming, agricultural and commercial composting, bull performance facility, horsemanship, an agricultural event centre, and most recently, a retail store that exclusively sells Alberta-made products.

Through all those ventures, family has always been the heart, soul, and driving force.


We’ve always got new and interesting things going on. Check out our blog to see our latest horses, cattle news, or FAQ’s of composting.

Every family
has a story.
