Our Story

We have been raising Registered Miniature Herefords for several years now and thoroughly enjoy the time we spend with them. Coming from only the purest and finest of bloodlines, we breed our cows to be the champions that they are. With careful attention paid to the heritage of our herd, we ensure the finest qualities are bred into them with young heifers being a minimum of 2 years old before the breeding process begins.


Characteristics and Benefits of Minis

* High fertility, early maturing, excellent feed converters, easy keepers and very gentle in nature.

*Thick, deep-bodied, short-legged, muscular and chunky in appearance

*Excellent for small properties, therefore heavy-duty fencing isn't necessary. A quality fence and shelter are adequate. A squeeze shoot or head gate is also helpful.

*Excellent show animals or children's 4-H or FFA projects because of natural gentleness and smaller size

*Better than standard animals in cow/calf weaning ratio, rib eye area per 100 weight & dressing percentage

*Allow for agriculture tax exemptions for lower property taxes

*Hardy and adaptable to many climates from cold Canada, to humid East, to hot South & dry Southwest

*Ideal for retired folks who may want cattle as a hobby, pet, secondary income, or full-time business



This fall we will have some bred cows and heifers available. Please call for details to reserve now.
