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
