Our decision to focus on Black Herefords was not made overnight. Our traditional Hereford genetics were developed first to ensure a solid base to build our Black Hereford program. This "walk before we run approach" allowed us to capitalize on all this exciting breed has to offer rather than merely changing the coat color of our cattle. This unique breed allows us the opportunity to capitalize on hybrid vigor and heterosis while maintaining our Hereford cattle base. As a result, we are able to provide our customers with docility/feed efficiency of Herefords that is combined with the calving ease/ carcass characteristics of Angus in a product that is the color you can count on.
We are third generation farmers of the Sherman family to farm this land. Our goal is to produce cattle that are built for longevity while being economically sustainable in a forage based environment. Thank you for supporting our family farming tradition.
It is relatively simple... we expect every cow to wean a calf every fall without exception. When an animal does not live up to our expectations, they graduate the program. We send only our best prospects annually to be performance tested against other breeds to prove their breeding merit.
