The Grand Opportunity Sale November 17 on Breeders World

Welcome to our first sale!

In 2004, when we bought our first Hereford, our family would never have dreamed where  The Hereford breed would take us! We have come from a few chosen Herefords from the Michigan State herd, to a elite group of donors and sires which we are really proud of.

Along the way our girls and we have learned a ton – about each other, ourselves, and the cattle. We have be blessed to be allowed to have some leadership positions  in the breed as well, both at the state and national level. And as we have grown so has our herd – and now seems to be the time to sell a few of those cattle.

The Hereford breed has given us a great opportunity – now we hope to give you one!

We think the cattle speak for themselves.

Thanks for looking, call if you have any questions,and remember us on November 17!
