Arcola-area farmer David McLean honoured with Saskatchewan Angus 2022 Heritage Award

At this year’s Canadian Western Agribition in Regina, long-time cattleman David McLean and his wife Marsha were honoured with the coveted 2022 Angus Heritage Award.

It recognizes them for their perseverance, vision, and dedication to the Angus breed.

The McLeans farm near Arcola and David has raised Angus cattle all his life. Originally named Diamond Meadows and now operating under DM Angus, their mixed farm has been in the Angus cattle business since 1954. That was the year David’s dad, Jim, bought his first purebred Angus cow. The farm typically had 55 cows and marketed a select group of females and bulls every year.

David and his children Kim, Brent and Michele were all members of the Arcola-Kisbey 4-H beef club, and several summers were spent showing Angus heifers and steers at the Weyburn Regional Beef Show. He was also an exhibitor at the Canadian Western Agribition and Regina Bull Sale for many years.
