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 2016 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.  

 

     

2015 Spring Bull Calves

We are always proud of the bulls that we have available, but this year we are extremely excited about the group we have to offer!   This year we are showing the first calves from each of our four new polled herd sires (bloodlines) that we added in 2014, as well as the last crop of Victor 31X calves.   We were excited about the planned matings, and we were not disappointed!  The bulls out of Victor 31X emphasize calving ease and lower birth weights.  Calves out of York 223A are consistently super-thick with a lot of bone, muscle and big-ribbed, with moderate birth weights.   Redeem 1305 sired several tremendous heifers, just a few bull calves, all of those with good muscle and growth.  A couple of bull calves out of both Cracker Jack 1313 and Trust 224A, and one A.I. calf from Xerox 20X round out the solid group of Spring Bulls.    Whether you’re looking for calving ease heifer bulls, high growth and bigger framed bulls for mature cows, or a combination of the two, we have options for them all.  Read thru the details below, look at the photos (and videos when available), and also refer to the 'Lenth Herefords Bulls For Sale - Comparison and Stats Sheet' to see a side-by-side comparison of the bulls and their specific traits. 

We are already taking Reservations for any of these bulls.   You can lock in your choice while selection is at its best, and for a small down-payment we will feed your bull(s) until you’re ready to take possession in Spring or early Summer 2016.  All bulls must pass a breeding soundness exam before you take possession, and we offer the standard ‘American Hereford Association’ breeders guarantee on all bulls.  Bulls are pre-priced for spring/summer possession, and are reserved on a first-come basis.  Call Marilyn (319-269-3146) or Doug (563-380-5656) for specific pricing, for any questions that you may have, or to reserve any of the bulls for immediate OR later possession.

2015 Spring Heifer Calves

The demand for good Hereford females, whether for show heifers or just good replacement females, remains very strong.  Between their super disposition, good mothering abilities, and good efficiency, they make great foundations for a herd.   This year we had a very strong group of females to offer.  We had daughters of Victor 31X, and our first crops of females out of Redeem, York, Cracker Jack, Trust and York sons.   We also have a few heifers that we picked up from other reputable purebred breeders, to extend the group of heifers that we can offer to our customers.

Many of the heifers have already been Sold or Reserved  – but we have a select few left available.   Once again we offer a tiered price range, based on possession timeframe.   Heifers may be reserved for possession immediately or any time prior to breeding as Open Heifers, or they can be Reserved as Bred Heifers.  In that case, we will keep them through the summer and get them bred to one of our purebred Hereford bulls, then the new owner may take possession in the Fall of 2016 after they have successfully passed a preg check.  We will even time their exposure to the bull to try to hit your preferred calving timeframe if reserved prior to being turned out with the bull.  

Call Marilyn (319-269-3146) for specific pricing, for any questions that you may have, or to reserve any of these heifers for immediate OR later possession.  As always, you’re certainly welcomed and encouraged to come look at them yourself if you are able.   Just call first to be sure we’ll be home.
