….COCHRANE,…. would be my choice as the best of the best in Western Towns in Canada. This town has long been the heart of Cattle & Horse Ranching country in the western Canada, as early as 1870 when Senator Cochrane establish the Cochrane, Merino Sheep,& Bow Valley Horse Ranch on the banks of the Bow River down stream from Cochrane. Many other great Ranching outfits quickie follow them in setting up horse & cattle ranching operations in the area, as the west winds (aka) Chinooks blew most of snow away, which allowed for easy winter pasturing. Cochrane is on the Cowboy Trail (aka) Hi-way #22 this hi-way was name because of all the cowboy’s trailing cattle to this area from the southern States.
