Hereford Bulls for Sale

I have put together a couple of video clips for the bulls and heifers. I also included a picture of buddy that I took yesterday. That is him in his working clothes. He has been in the pasture for 2 years with no additional creep. As you can see, right now he is running in corn stalks. They have access to hay and a protein tub. The only time they get corn is if I need to get them in. In the video, you can see how docile he is (I had a hard time getting him to walk). . I have never pulled a calf from this bull. All of his birth weights have been between 60 and 78 pounds. He is very easy on fences (ours are terrible) even with a pasture of steers and heifers to the south of us. I would like $1800 for him (I figure that is about market price)


The yearling bull was born September 3, 2007 (The date on the video is incorrect). His mother was a class winner at the Illinois State Fair a few years ago. His maternal sister was sold a couple of years ago to a girl in Missouri who showed her all over the place. page monitor . She was 2nd high in the point shows for two years in a row and Division Champion in both open and junior shows at the Missouri State fair. As with Buddy, this bull has a great disposition. I would like $1300 for him ( figure he weighs about 1400 pounds. I could have sold him as a steer to my customers for that. He probably would have been a steer, but a neighbor reneged on the deal to buy him as a bull after assuring me 3 times he wanted him).


Two of the heifers were show heifers and the other was not. Both of the show heifers come from our best cows, the other heifer comes from our best “pet.” They are fall calves because we flushed the mothers in the spring and it set them back.

712 is out of a cow that is full sister to a National Champion. Her mother won her class at our state preview show and state fair. We have sold several calves out of her. Recently, an embryo that we sold to a family in California won her class in Reno national show as well as Reserve Champion at the Western regional show. She is Purple Reign breeding.

You can see her EPD info here: http://www.herfnet.com/online/cgi-bin/i4.dll?1=232B21&2=2420&3=56&5=2B3C2B3C3A&6=5A5D5C232327252523&9=5F5C51

713 is out of a cow that we also showed (from Idaho-Colyer Herefords). Her siblings have won classes at the Junior Nationals and division champion at our state preview show.

714 is out of a cow that we bought from Randy Owens (from Alabama). She is extremely docile. This is the only heifer out of her that we didn’t show, mainly because we had the other two that were older.

You can see her EPD info here: http://www.herfnet.com/online/cgi-bin/i4.dll?1=232B21&2=2420&3=56&5=2B3C2B3C3A&6=5A5D5C232327252521&9=5F5C51

They are all registered and can be transferred. I would like $1000 for the heifers. I would imagine they are a little over 1000 pounds.
