Raising the right size cattle

for better feed efficiency and profitability

We follow the “Goldilocks and Three Bears” approach to raising  our Classic Herefords.

 “Not too big, not too small but just the right size”

The RIGHT SIZE is important

Welcome to our website about raising Classic Hereford cattle. We consider our Herefords to be “Classic Herefords” instead of “Miniature Herefords” as the industry has labeled them. They are not too big and not too small. They are grouped between the top part of a class labeled “Miniature Herefords” and the lower class labeled “Modern Herefords”. We don’t want visitors to our website to get the wrong idea related to the word Miniature”. These are not toy cattle.  Our focus is to get back closer to the original, “Classic” size Herefords were when they first came to the US through the 1970s and it is a better size to us for many reasons. You can read about the reasons to consider them at Why 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. They will be listed on our Facebook page at Mauldin Classic Herefords 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 “commercial Herefords for producing beef. Visitors can see pictures of our Classic Herefords and read information about them at

 We  started our initial herd 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 second bull was DF Cascades Kris Kringle. We have continued changing bulls since we are keeping some of the heifers and they will need different bloodlines in the future.
