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…

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 for the 2015 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 Doug at 563-380-5656 or Marilyn at 319-269-3146 with any questions, for pricing, or to discuss what you’re looking for.  

Current Price Range on remaining Bulls:
Good  $3,000-$3,250;    Better  $3,500-$3,750;   Best  $4,000-$4,500


     

 
2013 Spring - Fall Yearling Bulls

We are currently still offering Summer and Fall Yearling bulls from the 2013 crop.  If you’re looking for lower birth weights or a heifer bull, be sure to 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, we have several that could work very well towards those goals.  We also have some de-horned sons out of PL41 Shadow that are good ‘in between’ combinations of moderate birth weight and excellent growth and frame.    Read thru the details below, look at the photos and videos (recently updated), 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.  Call Marilyn or Doug for pricing or with any questions that you may have, or to reserve any of the bulls for immediate OR later possession. We will “winter” them for you if desired.   Older Hereford Bulls are in high demand.  Make your selections early – these may not last long.

This June yearling is another long-sided bull out of our horned sire Shadow PL41, and one of the larger-framed cows in our herd (1,910 mature cow weight).  With a strong top and natural muscle, he’s shown super growth that he’s sure to pass on to his calves.  He is well pigmented, with one red eye.  With a 78 lb. actual birth weight, he’s a low to moderate BW option, fully ready to go to work in 2015.
Latest Weight 3/7/2015 – 1,868 lbs.

This blocky, de-horned bull is certainly the type to produce calves with size and scale.  If your goal is to produce feeder calves or replacements that will perform and finish out with a good sized package, here is another bull that may be just what you’re looking for.  With a little higher birth weight, he’s not recommended as a heifer bull, but he will throw good gaining offspring.  His mother is a 12 year old cow, with a deep hind quarter, that’s still going strong in our Fall Herd. 
Latest Weight 3/7/2015 – 1,538 lbs.

Here is a super Heifer Bull option.  With a 65 lb. actual BW and 2.2 BW EPD, he would be a bull that will let you sleep easy during calving season.  Deep dark red and thick, this bull is easy to look at.  His mother is one of our top young fall cows, out of a moderate framed reliable cow family, all with deep bodies and beautiful udders.  Take a good look at him if you’re looking for a solid, young, polled heifer (or cow) bull.
Latest Weight 3/7/2015 – 1,424 lbs.

Here is a young Fall bull (late October) that is the smallest in stature, but has a lot of super traits to offer as a strong heifer bull choice.  With a tiny 57 lb. actual birth weight, a BW EPD of just 1.0, and a mother who was just a first-calf heifer, he jumped out to an energetic start and has been going ever since.  He’s thick with natural muscling (like both his mother and sire), but with his low birth weight features and size he’s the ideal heifer-bull package to start out.
 Latest Weight 3/7/2015 – 1,262 lbs.


 

   
2014 Spring Bull Calves
Once again we’re very proud of the new crop of Bull Calves we have to offer. The majority are polled Victor 31X sons with low birth weight and excellent growth, many with dark color and loads of pigment. A particularly strong combination has been the calves sired by Victor 31X – out of our Marshall T111 daughters. We have thick, blocky bulls out of Awesome 112 (a son of previous Denver Champion Shock & Awe), and really nice calves out of Barney 1220, an Odyssey bloodline son that we used on some heifers. Finally, we have some de‐horned calves from our Shadow PL41 horned sire that are also very long‐bodied and thick with loads of growth and potential. Read thru the details below, look at the photos (and videos once they are posted), and also refer to the 'Bull Comparison and Stat Sheet' to see a side‐by‐side comparison of all the bulls and their specific traits. Calves will be weaned in September & October – with updates to be posted periodically.

Again this year, we are offering early reservations, with the options of immediate possession or we will feed them through the winter until you’re ready for the bulls. That way you can lock in your choice(s) while selection is at its best. You’re welcome to come look at them in person, just call to make sure we’re home. Call Doug (563‐380‐5656) or Marilyn (319‐269‐3146) for pricing, with any questions that you may have, or to set up a time to come and look.

2014 Spring Heifer Calves
The demand remains strong for Hereford females, and only a few heifers remain available from our 2014 Spring crop.  If you’re looking for good genetics that will make a solid brood cow, take a look at what we still have, described below.    We do have several heifers kept back for our own replacements, and we would consider parting with a couple more of them, if you’re looking for a show heifer or herd-building replacement heifer.  Call for details. A number of really strong heifer calves are already on the ground with the new 2015 Spring calf crop, and we will begin letting people select from them already later this summer and fall.  We’re really excited on the calves out of our new Herd Sires added last year – they look amazing!  Pictures will be posted this summer.   If interested in seeing what we have coming up, consider visiting us this summer and taking a pasture tour to see our cow herd and calves on the ground.   We love visiting with cattlemen and families, and showing what we have to offer.   Give us a call and come by to visit!  And do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or to discuss what you’re looking for.  Call Marilyn at 319-269-3146 if interesting in discussing the possibilities.
