We follow the “Goldilocks and 3 Bears” approach to raising our Classic Herefords (some call Miniature) and Red Lowline Angus. Not too big, not too small but just the right size. The RIGHT SIZE is important.
Welcome to our website about our Classic Herefords & Red Baldies. We consider our Herefords to be “Classic Herefords” instead of “Miniature Herefords” as the industry labels them. They are not too big and not too small. They are grouped in the top part of a class labeled “Miniature Herefords”. We don’t want visitors to our website to get the wrong idea related to the word “Miniature”. These are not toy animals. You can get a better understanding about the history of the Miniature Hereford labeling at Mini History. Our focus is to get back closer to the original, “Classic” size Herefords were when they first came to the US and it is a better size to us for many reasons. You can read about the reasons to consider them at Why Classic Herefords.
We started a small herd of top quality Classic Herefords in the summer of 2013. We also started crossbreeding them to purebred and percentage Red Lowline Angus cattle creating “Red Baldies” for our small herd in 2014. We intend to do fullblood registered breeding with the Classic Herefords plus registered purebred and percentage Red Lowine Angus that have a “Classic size”.
We will only have a small herd,so we will approach the marketing differently since we will normally not have many animals to list at one time on our For Sale page. Our focus will be to let potential buyers understand we have purchased some of the best genetics in the US related to winning at shows or producing top quality “grass-fed” beef. Our website will let people watch our new calves grow so people can better understand the quality of our Miniature Herefords and Red Lowlines and how they may best fit into their future.
Visitors can see pictures of our Classic Herefords, Red Lowline Angus and read information about them at “Bulls , Hereford Cows” & “Red Lowline Angus” page. We started out by purchasing WW Prince William, the Bull that was back-to-back Grand Champion Classic frame size Miniature Hereford Bull for 2011 & 2012 at the Texas State Fair. Our bull’s sire, KAP Silver Sampson, has also won more Grand Champion awards than any other Miniature Hereford bull in the US as of 2013.
Our herd is raised only on pasture and winter hay. They must have the genetics to do well without being fed grains. We do put out mineral blocks and occasionally use cattle cubes to help move our herd from one pasture to another or up to our working pens for vaccinations, worming, etc.
Our breeding focus is prioritized as follows:
Show quality breeding stock
Breeding stock for small farms
Home of WW Prince William Grand Champion Bull At State Fair of Texas two years in a row.
Texas Red Pepper
