Lenth herefords – for sale la gas prices average


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.
