Just got back from the 2009 Illinois Beef Expo. After talking to the Illinois Beef Association staff, they were pleasantly surprised with the turnout. Over 600 junior members showed cattle. The bull auction was the third highest average ever (helped by the polled bull $2450).

At the IPHA meeting, I was honored to be elected to Board of Directors. My oldest daughter retired as the Illinois Polled Hereford Queen. She was quite honored to represent Illinois at the National contest held in Denver, where she was second runner-up.

HARFST Coalette


Jake purchased a nice new show heifer at the Illni Classic Sale. The heifer, HARFST 6086 Coalette, will be a great addition to our herd. Her mother is a full sister to to Tamar Adcock’s Reserve Jr. National Champion Polled Female, BH L7 Connor 723. We have a sister to Connor in our herd out of Purple Tonic. She was a class winner at the Illinois State Fair in 2007 (I think that was the year).

Finally, I have updated the for sale page. We have sold one bull, but we have another to offer. Please check it out if you are looking for a herd bull. Also, I am slowly building the rest of the site adding some past winners. Hopefully I can find all the pictures I need to make the site better.

As always, if you need more information, please feel free to contact me. You can find my information on the right side of the page.
