In this group there are three heifers and one bull. All are already registered with the American Hereford Association. Upon purchase their registrations will be transferred to YOU at no charge.

Weaning a New Group Of Registered Polled Hereford Calves

We are currently weaning a group of four registered Polled Hereford calves. In this group are three beautiful heifers and a chunky bull.

Preparing for A.I… In the RAIN!

We’re preparing to A.I. nine of our cows. The protocol we use is a 10-day timed method which involves 3 different injections on different days and the use of a CIDR to regulate their cycle and prepare them for breeding.

But once you pull the CIDR and give that second shot, the clock’s ticking! Pulling that CIDR will put them ready to breed in 3 days.

So with an eye on the weather we hoped to be able to remove the CIDR today and start that clock on the way to heat. But with a high percentage of rain all day we knew it wouldn’t be a fun chore.

Still we suited up & pushed the girls through the mud and deep slog-holes to get it all done in the pouring rain.

Tuesday is A.I. day! We’re excited about the high-impact bulls we’ve chosen for these girls.

We’re currently offering weaned, Registered Polled Hereford calves and they’re gorgeous! You can See Them Here.

Process To Breed Cows Via A.I. Begins

We are beginning the process to get 5 registered Polled Hereford mamas re-bred, and we’re choosing the sires!

All of these girls calved in February and they threw us some mighty fine calves. So we’re putting them back through our 10-day A.I. program to get them bred to some pretty powerful bulls.

We’ve chosen two different Polled Hereford sires for some of these girls – Huth Prospector & Churchill Red. We’ve used both of these bulls in the past with very desirable results.

And we’ve chosen a Silvey black Angus sire and a Jaquay black Angus sire to produce some F1 Black baldie calves too. So exciting!

Who Will Calve First??!!

Back in July of last year we bred 4 of our heifers via A.I. Two heifers were bred with a registered Angus bull to throw F1 black baldy calves. The other two were bred to a high profile Hereford bull – Churchill Red Bull. All four heifers were A.I. on the same date just minutes from each other. But then…

We’d already moved the heifers up to the ‘maternity ward’ pasture so that we could keep a close eye on them as their calving time neared. Then we noticed one appeared to go into labor. YES!

But wait, what’s this? One of the other heifers went into labor as well. It’s a race to the finish line y’all. Will the Baldie calf make its appearance first, or the Hereford calf?

Back in July of last year we bred 4 of our registered Hereford heifers via A.I. Two heifers were bred with a registered Angus bull to throw F1 black baldy calves. The other two were bred to a high profile Hereford bull – Churchill Red Bull.

Although they calved very close to the same time, the baldie calf came along first, a fine heifer weighing 67 lbs.

Her birth was followed minutes later with the Hereford calf coming along. Another fine heifer weighing 74 lbs.

Exciting times indeed at Taylor-Made Ranch. Welcome to the ranch, kids!

Yearling Bull Headed To New Pastures

I’ve loved bull #310 since the day he was born. When he matured he was used to breed several of our heifers and I was hoping, if he didn’t sell first, to use him in our satellite pastures. I didn’t want a mammoth bull who could step flat-footed over adjoining fences in our absence. His shorter size and calm demeanor would be beneficial, especially in that suituation. Plus, I loved the way he’s built. Square & bulky!

But a very nice couple loved his look too and have tentatively purchased him. He’s off to the vet today for  his Texas State required TRICH tests and a fertility test. After the lab results come back all good, we’ll arrange for his new owners to come pick him up.

But I’m not going to lie – I’ll be sad to see him rolling away in that other trailer!

 

Babies Everywhere!

We had 5 of our girls that were calving within a 2-week period. So we moved them all to the front pasture so that we could keep an eye on them as they neared their calving time. One by one they calved and have now all been blended back with the herd. Here’s the last holdout, a gorgeous and oh-so-dark bull calf. Awwwww…. isn’t he a cutie??!!

It’s so pleasant watching all those babies, they’re all out there in the pasture romping & playing. Now bring on spring!

We also have other registered Polled Hereford animals to offer. We’d love to talk to you about any of them.

New Kids On The Block

We are now weaning these three cuties – two bulls and one heifer. These registered polled Hereford weanlings will be offered for sale after their final boosters have been administered.

All of the photos below were taken yesterday.

This boy is the offspring of one of our most productive herd cows.
His DOB was Valentine’s Day – 02-14-19.

This is one beefy boy! Bull #116-5 was born 02-21-19.

This beautiful girl is dark and gorgeous! Her DOB is 03-29-19.

NOTE: As soon as these weanlings are offered for sale, the two older yearling bulls will age-up in price. So if you’ve been on the fence, now’s the time to buy and save yourself some cash!
