Willis Polled Herefords update as of 12-10-2018
We are preparing for winter. All cows have calved and their calves are in one of three groups, replacement heifers, yearling bulls or steers being readied for the NETBIO feeder calf sale. We will be sending 8 steers to the January NETBIO sale. Here they are checking out the side-by-side. You can click on any picture to enlarge.
There are some more pictures on the Cattle for Sale page.
We completed the DNA on the cow herd using the program provided by the AHA. It was interesting. A few issues were discovered and are being corrected. We now have a cow herd free of the three genetic defects common to Herefords. You can buy with confidence.
