Take a look below at the selection of Hereford Bulls ‘For Sale’, as well as the Show and Replacement Hereford Heifers that we currently have
‘FOR SALE’.  These are available through Private Treaty Sale from our Postville, Iowa location.  More animals become available with each season.  Whether you are looking for Registered Herefords to show or build your herd – or if you want good Hereford blood for crossing in a black or other commercial herd, we have options for each!  Let us know what you have and what you are ‘looking for’ and we will see what we may have to help you best.  If your priority is to find low birth weights and calving ease, we have bulls with low actual birth weights and EPD’s. 
If your focus is finding high growth, frame and the ability to put on pounds of meat, we also have cattle that will meet that need.

For the 2014 & 2015 breeding seasons we added bulls from four strong outcross bloodlines to expand our pool of genetics.  Each of them were Polled, with low or moderate birth weights and high growth.  We are currently using sons of well-known sires Redeem, SHF York, Trust 100W, and Cracker Jack, and just recently added a son of Revolution 4R to use for 2016 calves and beyond.   Our cow herd includes a strong base of 719T grand-daughters, and daughters from Marshall & Burley 444, for a strong cross-section of traits and bloodline bases.  We currently have 5 Active Dams-of-Distinction in the herd, along with 31 Daughters/Grand-daughters of DOD’s, showing the strong maternal herd that we have built.
Hereford and Hereford-cross calves are gaining in demand each year because of their profitability and success of using Hereford bulls on black or other commercial females.  To see values in cross Herefords with other breeds, you can view the results of an independent study results on
’The Impacts of Crossbreeding on Profitability…

Demand for good Hereford genetics has been really strong again this year, and a lot of people have been shopping early.  Many bulls have already been SOLD in preparations for the 2017 breeding seasons, but several really good bulls are still available for selection.   Look below to see details on the remaining bulls we have to offer.  There are still good choices for either low birth weight heifer bulls, higher growth bulls for cows, and ‘in between’ combinations.   Give us a call, or come by to look at them if you are within driving distance.   We take reservations so that you can lock in your choice, and we will feed them until you take possession.   Call Marilyn at 319-269-3146 or Doug at 563-380-5656  with any questions, for pricing, or to discuss what you’re looking for.

2016 Spring Heifer Calves

Our heifer calves are very limited this year since our spring calf crop was very heavy on bull calves.    We are holding back a few that we are keeping for our own replacements, some based on quality but many due to certain bloodlines we want to keep.   Some of the best heifers are still listed below – all of them will make good brood cows - some could show as well.  You will see some marked as “Feature Heifers”.   Those are ones that we are still considering keeping for replacements as well.  We are willing to let some of them go, but we do not plan to sell all of them.  The first ones selected will be sold, and as some are reserved, we will lock in others to keep back for ourselves.  So don’t wait too long if you’re interested in any of the ‘Feature Heifers’.
We are already locking in ‘early Reservations’ – Once again, we offer a 3-tiered pricing and possession schedule with early reservations accepted.  Base price is figured for possession this Fall 2016 after weaned.  For a little more, we will feed and house your choice(s) through the winter, with buyer taking possession in Spring 2017 prior to breeding.   OR, for those that prefer, we will keep the heifers all through next summer, getting them bred to one of our bulls, with possession after verified pregnant, in the Fall of 2017.   Feel free to call Marilyn (319) 269-3146 for pricing, with any questions that you may have, to set up a time to visit and look at the heifers in person, or to reserve any of them for immediate OR later possession.

2016 Fall Heifer Calves

 

We’re happy to have a deep and impressive set of Fall Heifer Calves to offer this year.  With our own Fall herd having been built up the past couple of years, we have more heifers to share this year.  A few are listed as ‘Feature Heifers’.  We expect to retain a couple more of them in our own herd, but we have priced them all and the first ones selected will be Sold.   All heifers are available any time between now and Fall 2017 as open heifers, and we will also take reservations for any to be held and fed by us over the coming year, bred by our bulls, taking possession of them as Bred Heifers next spring – ready for Fall 2018 calving.   Another option will be to hold them over for breeding for Spring 2019 calving at 30 months of age, which is commonly done in the industry.  Pricing is based on quality and possession timeframes. Call Marilyn (319) 269-3146 for pricing, with any questions that you may have, to set up a time to come see any of them, or to reserve any of these heifers for immediate OR later possession.
