Herd Sires

Our Herd Sires

The first 8 years I raised Herefords were learning years. I learned a lot of things that I didn’t like about the cows and bulls I had purchase to start my herd. It also took me that long to find the Trask Herefords. A breed within the Hereford breed that I have found to produce and thrive in my environment. I am always looking for bulls that produce calves that gain well, but what I am really looking for are bulls that produce problem free, functionally efficient daughters that can handle large amounts of fescue and other poor quality forages. These bulls do that.
