Hereford Lady was our pick of heifer calves in the Colyer Herefords 2012 Female Sale. Her dam R111 is one of the top producing females in the breed and her sire Mr. Hereford, whose genetics are rare and highly sought after, adds a powerful square hip and hind leg. Hereford lady blends perfectly from her top into her shoulder and maintains a feminine look through her front end, this look earned her the Reserve Champion Hereford Female at the Fort Worth National Hereford Show in 2013. She has the depth and shape of rib that the real cowboys love. We highly anticipate that Hereford Lady will become one of the top donors in the Iron Lake Program and make an impact on the Hereford Breed.
