American Herefords

Is it any surprise that the Hereford breed originated as a product of necessity? Efficient, adaptable and hardy, these cattle have always had a face to remember.

Nearly 300 years ago, farmers of Herefordshire, England, founded the breed in response to demand created by Britain’s Industrial Revolution. Efficient production, high yields and sound reproduction were of utmost importance.

Today’s versatile Hereford continues to be the benchmark against which other breeds are measured as cattlemen continue to seek the optimum traits inherent in Herefords.

Those traits critical to survival in the cattle business are exactly the same traits Herefords offer to today’s industry:

  • Fertility
  • Reproductive performance

  • Documented feedlot and carcass superiority
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Optimum muscling
