Registered Miniature Herefords

Hereford cattle are a beef cattle breed. 

History

The Miniature Hereford has been developed over the last 30 years by selective breeding of stock that was originally imported to the US from England in the early 19th Century. 

The first Miniature Herefords were sold on the open market in 1991. All Miniature Herefords are able to be registered with the American Hereford Society, once they are checked free of the dwarfism gene.

Characteristics

The only difference between a Hereford and a Miniature Hereford is the height and weight, the Miniature has the same body profile in terms of proportion as a full sized Hereford. A Miniature Hereford averages around 42-45 inches in height and weighs between 600 and 1000 lbs.  Apart from that, the Miniature Hereford is the same in characteristics as its larger counterpart.

About Buck and Bull Cattle Ranch:

John and Teresa Ginn purchased land at 451 Franklin Road, Franklin, Tennessee in 2015 and began construction on a house.  John and his dad, Ray, constructed the fencing and built the red barn at the back of the property.   Currently, we have five registered Miniature Herefords, with more calves on the way.  We had no idea we would end up with cows.  What a great adventure!

 

Thanks so much to Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment for replacing our mineral feeder after Chet damaged the last one!  This is not only the best way to ensure the cattle have the proper minerals they need, but also a fun toy.
