Herd Reduction Announcement:

This spring we were faced with the difficult task of reducing our cow herd from 17 to 10 females due to the loss of about 40 acres of summer pasture.
Deciding which females to sell and which to keep was a difficult challenge since we have selected for performance over many years and the 17 we calved out
we felt were all "keepers". The 7 pairs we finally chose to let go would not have been for sale under normal circumstances.

Thank you to Stoney Hinshaw and Georgia Plumb of Pine Ridge Herefords, Malcom, Iowa, for seeing the merit in these pairs and purchasing the entire group. The cows
have calves at side sired by KT Small Town Kid 5051, S Coventry Y02 4D - our current herd sire by York, and S Marksman 936 84B - our previous herd sire.
We appreciate the confidence Stoney and Georgia have shown in our breeding program and we expect the cattle will perform as well for them as they have for us
.
We are excited to see these females stay in production with another registered Hereford program.


Becky & Mike with Georgia & Stoney
