Registered Miniature Herefords
Hereford cattle are a beef cattle breed.
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.
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.
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.
