It is with great pleasure that we offer for sale
our family of Polled Hereford cows. Our herd was founded on 45 years of experience
in commercial breeding in Kentucky, where we have observed closely the evolution of the
purebred Polled Hereford. We have been in Oregon raising this marvelous breed since
Our goal is to produce cows that have a balance of
growth, milk, disposition and fertility. By limiting frame score from 5.5 to 6.8 we
increase feed efficiency and productivity without losing muscle mass or increasing bone or
Limited only by our small, non-irrigated farm and
our desire to produce practical traits demanded by breeders and consumers, we aggressively
cull to maintain a herd of 20 head. They live in rigid, small pasture rotation for five
months and are supplemented with grass and legume hay for the remainder of the year. We
feed no grain. Calves depend upon their dams for pre-weaning growth.
We use no hormones, insecticides, herbicides or
chemical fertilizers. Our preferred methods include the introduction of natural
compost and insect predators to our farm environment.
With emphasis on performance, we use either A.I. or
natural herd sires for the best combination of superior EPD's
and no visible or measurable faults. As a result, we consistantly achieve dependable,
problem-free cows with superior performance.
We appreciate the support of our friends and other
breeders of Polled Herefords. We have worked together to build this fine herd of
cattle for the consumer and look forward to sharing this genetic force with you.
