Our History

Our founding partner, Dr. Kee Jim, grew up on a cattle ranch north of Kamloops, British Columbia and attended the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

While in his second year of veterinary school, Kee recognized the opportunity to provide specialized veterinary services for the feedlot industry in southern Alberta. This inspired him to move to Okotoks, Alberta, after graduation in 1983 and create what would become Feedlot Health Management Services.

Recognizing potential for computerizing individual animal record keeping at feedlots, Feedlot Health continued development of a new feedlot software program that Kee had begun while in school. This resulted in the creation of the individual animal data collection and execution software systems that have become the cornerstone of the services provided by Feedlot Health.

This software also created a solid platform to enhance Feedlot Health’s research capabilities, which contributed to international recognition of the Feedlot Health research team.
Today, Feedlot Health is the industry leader in feedlot and calf grower consulting and research services, working with over two-million beef cattle a year.
