The Anderson ranch near Fort Walsh in the Cypress Hills.

"When people think of ranching in Saskatchewan, this is an image that quite often comes to mind. The vast grasslands in the Southwest were open range land until the devastating winter of 1906/07. After 1907 large scale ranching operations pulled back and homesteaders moved in to break the land. Small scale ranching operations continued, but the days of the open range and unfenced grassland would not return."
