Take a look below at the selection of Bulls, Show and Replacement females 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.  Our Polled Herd Sire ‘Victor 31X’ (son of the popular Victor 719T) was added specifically for calving ease with a BW EPD of just +1.5 and CEZ (Calving Ease) rating of +7.0, which is in the top 1% of the industry.  We have had 112 of his calves so far, with an average BW of just 74 lbs. With that, he still has above average WW & YW growth numbers.  We also have calves out of his son, Victor 217Z with a BW EPD of just +2.4.  If your focus is finding high growth, frame and the ability to put on pounds of meat, we still have offspring from our Polled Sire T111 Marshall, who ranked in the top 1% in the industry in WW and YW EPD’s.

For the 2014 breeding season we have added bulls from four strong outcross bloodlines.  All are polled with low or moderate birth weights and high growth.  We purchased yearling bulls out of Redeem, Cracker Jack, Trust and SHF York and are using them on Bred Heifers and Cows during 2014, along with our Victor 31X bull.  We will have calves from each of those bloodlines available in 2015.

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…

Reservations continue to be taken for Bulls and Females (open or bred) for delivery throughout 2014 and already for delivery into 2015.  Lock in your choices early – we will feed them until you take possession.  Call for details, pricing, availability, and for best selection.  Call Doug at 563-380-5656 or Marilyn at 319-269-3146 – or come visit and see the cattle first-hand.   Just call first to make sure we will be around.   We’d love to talk with you!

2013 Spring Yearling Bulls

 
Many of our Spring Yearling Bulls have already been selected, but we still have a small group of good bulls available from that crop. If you’re looking for lower birth weights or a heifer bull, check out the Victor 31X sons. If you’re crossing with black or other commercial cows and want growth and size for producing feeder calves or good gaining fat cattle, be sure to check out the T111 Marshall sons. And we still have one dehorned son out of PL41 Shadow for a good ‘in between’ combination. Also check out our ‘Summer and Fall Yearling Bulls’, with some listed already and more to be added closer to Fall. Read thru the details below, look at the photos and videos, and also refer to the 'Bull Comparison and Stat Sheet' to see a side-by-side comparison of the bulls and their specific traits. Call Marilyn or Doug for pricing or with any questions that you may have.

2013 Fall Heifers for Fall 2015 Calving

We have a solid group of Fall Heifer calves recently weaned, that are now available to be selected or reserved.  Again, we offer a 3-tiered price schedule based on possession:   1) Priced for delivery/pickup early Summer 2014 as open heifers.  2) Priced for delivery/pickup Fall 2014 before breeding   3) Priced as ‘Bred Heifers’ with us feeding thru Winter 2014, and getting them bred to our bulls and safe in calf for Spring 2015 pickup/delivery –  bred for Fall 2015 calving. You can lock in your selections early, and with a down payment we will feed and keep them until your selected possession timeframe.  
Call Marilyn at 319-269-3146 for pricing, any questions you may have, or to check latest availability. You are always welcome to come look at the heifers at our farm too – just give us a call before coming by to make sure we will be home.  (End-of-winter photos are posted below, updated photos & videos will be posted as they become available.)
