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.  They were sons of well-known A.I. sires Redeem, SHF York, Trust 100W and Cracker Jack (their first daughters have calves now).   For the 2016 and 2017 breeding seasons we added two more new herd bulls, sons of Revolution 4R and Hyalite OnTarget, as well as using some strategic A.I.’g on select cows and heifers.  Our cow herd includes a strong base of 719T grand-daughters, daughters from past high growth sires Marshall & Burley 444, and most recently our 1st calver daughters from the new bloodlines.  These steps have allowed us to maintain and continue to build  a strong cross-section of traits and bloodline bases for both new and repeat customers.  We currently have 9 Active Dams-of-Distinction in the herd, along with 30 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’The Impacts of Crossbreeding on Profitability…

Demand for good Hereford genetics continues to be strong, and many people like to shop early for best selection.   Many bulls and heifer calves have ALREADY been SOLD for 2020 breeding seasons, but many other excellent options still remain.   Look below to see details on the Bulls and Heifers that we currently have available.    Give us a call, or come by to look at them if you are within driving distance.  If you would like additional information, photos or videos, just let us know what information you would like, and we will try to provide for you.  We offer early reservations for 2020 possession, so you can lock in your choice, and we will feed them until you take possession.   Call Marilyn 319-269-3146, or Doug 563-380-5656, with any questions, for pricing, or to discuss what you’re looking for.

     
     

 
 
Spring 2-yr old Bulls

Check out the details below on each bull, or view the details on all of our available bulls side-by-side for easy comparison on our ‘Bull Stats and Comparison Sheet’ (link in green at top of this page).

2019 Spring Bull Calves  

Our Spring Bull Calves (or ‘Winter’ as Doug calls them) are a particularly deep and strong set this year.   They include an offering of the first of our ET calves out of our own Donor Cows Sierra 127Y and Lady 35A.  Those and other calves are particularly eye catching.  Several well-known A.I. sires are represented, along with our own herd bulls including Goldrush 608D, and we have a number of versatile and impressive bulls to choose from.  We have already started taking reservations for the 2020 breeding season.   With a nominal down payment, we will house and feed them until you need them prior to summer 2020 breeding.  Lock in your choices early for best selection!  Call Marilyn at 319-269-3146 to discuss the options or to set up a time to come look at the cattle.

2018 Fall Heifers  

SOLD OUT


 

   
2019 Spring Heifers
(For Spring 2021 Calving)
 

Our 2019 Winter/Spring Heifers make up a group that we are extremely proud to offer.  We have both A.I. sired heifers and some from our own herd sires; there are a variety of strong genetic and physical traits to choose from.  This year we have again had several repeat customers wanting ‘early picks’, so even in mid-summer we have several heifers that have already been reserved.  Because of that, we have decided to go ahead and post the entire group, so everyone can have a look at the offering.  (We will update photos as we can.)  These Winter/Spring Heifers are again priced on a 3-tier scale; 1) Priced for possession after Fall-2019 weaning, as ‘Open Heifers’;  2) reserved with us keeping through the winter, possession in Spring 2020 before breeding;  3) reserved with us holding, developing, and breeding (according to purchaser’s requests) for Spring 2021 calving, with possession in Fall-2020 after passing preg check.   Contact Marilyn at 319-269-3146 to discuss options, to set up a time for viewing, or for specific pricing.
