Pure Holsteins Limited was founded in September of 2011 by my Wife Sara (originally from Boreview Holsteins, Lower Coverdale, NB), and I, David Simmons.

In October 2011 we purchased most all dairy assets including equipment, and animals from Hammond Farm Ltd (Scosim Holsteins), and established a long term lease on the housing facilities and dairy quota. Hammond Farm is owned by my father Bruce and his two brothers, Keith and Wayne.

Hammond Farm has deep roots in the dairy industry which Pure Holsteins continues to build on. The farm originally owned by the Bowater Company who also owned the paper mill in the nearby City of Corner Brook.

It was later sold to the Lundrigan family who had a highly esteemed Ayrshire herd. Well known within the Ayrshire world, Hammond Ayrshires had many AI stud bulls and cows that made world milk production records.

In 1979 the Lundrigan family Sold Hammond Farm to my grandfather Scott Simmons. At that time the dairy herd had been sold off and the barn was empty.

In the early 1980’s Hammond farm obtained fluid milk quota and with the help of his herdsman at the time, Phil Mclean (Headline Holsteins), my grandfather built a Holstein herd which carried the Scosim prefex. The Scosim herd was sold to herdsman Phil Mclean and his wife Dr. Pauline Duivenvoorden in 1989 and the housing facilities and quota were leased to them for ten years. This is when they established Headline Holsteins.
