Westcoast Holsteins was established in 2010 by the Kooyman Family, who has several decades of dairy industry experience in the Chilliwack area of British Columbia. It began with the purchase of Stoneden Goldwyn Candace EX-95 3E 16*. Today the Kooymans strive to breed deep pedigree’s and show type, have focused on R&W genetics and also work with many high genomic females. The show string is housed in a 20-box stall barn and the other 300 registered animals reside in a separate freestall barn. Westcoast has enjoyed tremendous show ring success with KHW Regiment Apple-3 Red EX-94 4*, Grand Champion WDE R&W 2013, and Wendon Dempsey Prude EX-95, Reserve Grand Champion WDE 2016.
