We have always loved the Hereford breed, harkening back to some of my Dad’s happiest days when he purchased a small herd in Weatherford, Texas in the mid 50’s. These docile and versatile animals are easy going and amazingly resilient. Entering this opportunity under the unique direction of Shannon and James Worrell of Worrell Enterprises, we have obtained some very nice cattle that will fast forward this venture. Our goal is to raise show quality calves that represent the breed correctly in all facets.
We have selected several heifers from popular genetics that are bred to proven bulls including an embryo from the Grand Champion female at the ’16 San Antonio Stock Show. Partnering with the Ottmers family, we purchased Worr 172 Grace 7100 7D ET that has entered the show circuit and coming on strong.
With two nice heifer calves out of Kimberly and JuLee, one for sale and one now in the Worrell's show string. Her first outing, Grand Champion and second, Reserve Champion.
We have one embryo from Bonnie (Grand Champ '16, San Antonio Stock Show) and Catapult, that is now implanted via Deep Creek in Wyoming and will be exciting to see what comes of that mating.
The Hereford Breed has become the choice of many breeders seeking the hybrid vigor that comes from crossing this progressive breed with others and one of the exciting new programs is the promotion of Certified Hereford Beef.
