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.

2013 Fall Long Yearling Bull



Please be patient while video loads

SOLD



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 5/7/2015 – 1,702 lbs.

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.
