Welcome to ET HEREFORDS. We are a family operation located about 65 miles southeast of Kansas City, MO.
This website was created by our daughter Susan at the kitchen table. Just like every post that is set or every cow that is flushed, we do it ourselves. The obvious benefit is lower cost which can be passed on to you as a potential customer. The real benefit comes from knowing firsthand what works and what doesn’t. If a cow or bull doesn’t work, we see it ourselves and can’t make excuses because their pedigree was hot at the Denver or Fort Worth stock shows.
After over 100 years of Hereford knowledge and experience our breeding program is simple and consistent. My grandfather did not chase the baby beef fad of the 30’s and 40’s. My father did not use the runt bulls of the 50’s and 60’s. Today, I am not influenced by the current hit bull of the year.
We breed for growth, milk and muscle. We raise our cattle on Kentucky 31 fescue and select the best of each generation to use in our embryo transplant program.
