Tom and Danika of Warnyca Land and Cattle merge traditional beef and functional market cattle. Thankful, respectful, responsible and practical. These simple yet powerful words kept coming to mind as I spoke with Tom and Danika Warnyca of Warnyca Land and Cattle. These ideas hold a magnified meaning for Tom and Danika, based at Montmartre, Saskatchewan, and after my conversation with them, it was easy to see why. Our discussion reflected their respect for the past and an acceptance of the responsibility to use your abilities in the most practical way possible, especially as they pertain to agriculture.
The operation that Tom’s parents started in the 1950s, WTK Polled Herefords, is now home to a herd of 200 purebred and crossbred Hereford, Angus and Black Galloway cows, interspersed with a smattering of Speckle Park cattle. Pastures, trees and wetlands run alongside a rotation of oats, pulse crops and oilseeds. Of course, none of this happened overnight but rather through a gradual process of introspection.
