Hereford Reference Sires

Our Hereford cattle are the result of over 51 years of performance testing, stringent culling and progressive genetic expansion.  Our Hereford herd sires are a powerful set of bulls and we use Artificial Insemination and Embryo Transfer to maximize the use of the best genetics.

It's important to document that our Hereford cattle are genetically free all known genetic defects.
