New Hereford Breeder

Postby Ned Jr. » Sat Mar 25, 2006 6:56 pm

I have enjoyed reading the boards for a while now and just decided to join in. I like all cattle but Herefords are my favorite. Herefords are my least favorite also. I love the good ones and hate the bad ones. The bad ones just give the rest a bad name. I have ranched all my life,cattle and hay. Please forgive my spelling and typing skills.

Thanks for being so forgiving TurnThatCowLooseMaw. I'm not sure how I screwed up and posted twice. It must be from me hitting refresh, don't know.

Welcome to the forum Ned Jr, a good number of people here breed or cross with Herefords, don't be afraid to be proud of your favourite breed!

Welcome, your raise polled or horns? On the WA coast its pretty much all Polled Herefords there so I wasnt exposed to the horns much, but after a trip to South Dakota with a few college friends to my buddies families ranch all they run is horned cattle and I love this quote from them, "when they bred the horns out they bred the brains out as well." Just thought it was pretty interesting how people prefer one to the other.

Hey,BlackBaldyMan. It's been so long since you posted you may have gave up on a reply. Ive been busy calving and working on machinery.
We run horned Herefords, I have heard coments like that but I haven't had enough experience with polled Herefords to even have much of an opinion on them. Alot of our bull costomers run in some very wild places and like horns to help with predators. One thing that I have noticed about polled is the birthweights seem to run higher. I can't sell high BW bulls very well and I don't need calving problems so thats a big factor for me. I'm sure there are alot of them that would work though.

Welcome Ned Jr....I will quickly admit that I've never met a mean Herf. We've kept one herf heifer around for no other reason that she is a sweetheart and had a nice big red baldie heifer calf last Sunday. Welcome and don't worry about the typing my fat o'l fingers don't always respond to what the mind is thinking and my computer doesn't spell all that good eiother.

Dang - yet another one of those folks breeding those stinking red / white faced things. Why don't you get with the program and start raising something good - like a Black Angus?

Most likely you even have that dreaded Herford disease called horns.

:lol:

Welcome to the boards anyways - you'll soon learn that there is no cattle colour other than black if you want to make any money.

:lol:

Regards,

Bez!

Wow, I can't imagine a Hereford breeder saying that a black cow will make more money. I may be dense but I can't tell if you are serious or are just wise-cracking. I am involved with both Hereford and Angus cattle and belive both have their attributes, but too imply that Herefords don't make money is a bit of a stretch. Welcome Ned Jr! and I do appreciate your comments Bez! :)
