Welcome to P.Quintaine & Son Ltd.
At P. Quintaine and Son Ltd., and J. Quintaine & Son Ltd., we have established ourselves as leaders in the Western Canadian livestock brokerage industry. Operating a fully-intergrated business, we have successfully built a large presence in both the cattle brokerage and hog brokerage industries.
This two-generation business was started by Pete Quintaine in the late 1940’s near Pilot Mound, Manitoba. Jim Quintaine, Peter’s son, started working in the business on a part-time basis in 1965 and was brought into the management team of the business in 1969. Pete and Jim managed the business together until Pete’s semi-retirement in 1982, at which time Jim took over all the general management duties himself. Pete still likes to be involved to this day, but plays a very minimal role.
The business changed locations in 1968 when it moved from Pilot Mound, Manitoba, to Brandon, Manitoba — its present location. At this time, the business was incorporated as P.Quintaine & Son Ltd.
