PortraitClement James Kimber

Clement Kimber, pioneer Saskatchewan sheep rancher, was born near Salisbury, Wiltshire, England and received his formal education there. In 1901 he came to Canada, obtaining employment first as a cattle ranch hand and later as a shepherd. In 1910 he established his own sheep flock on a ranch west of Hazlet and in 1927 he moved his sheep ranching operation to a location north of Abbey.

Throughout his career he maintained a flock size of 1,200 breeding ewes and he stuck with the Rambouillet breed. He sold feeder lambs and breeding ewes.

Interested in improving the market for wool he was active in the formation of the Southern Saskatchewan Wool Growers in 1914 and served as president of that organization from 1937 to 1964. He also served for many years as Saskatchewan director of the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers.

Mr. Kimber was an active backer of the Moose Jaw Feeder Show and Sale which reigned for several decades as the largest sheep sale in Canada. For his work here and throughout the sheep industry he was awarded a scroll in 1955 from the Saskatchewan Livestock Board.

In addition to his work in producing and promoting sheep, Clem Kimber served as municipal councillor for 15 years in the Hazlet area and for 28 years in the Abbey district. He also was a long-time school trustee.
