Welcome to our cattle page…
Cassie, Justin and Amanda mark the seventh generation in our family to raise Hereford cattle. This is something we are very proud of.
Craig and his younger brother began showing Polled Hereford cattle in the “Bacon Brothers” name as their FFA project. Craig’s first Polled Hereford Junior National was in 1977, and he continued until his last in Reno, Nevada where he was awarded with Champion Senior Showman. Craig and his brother continued to sell purebred Hereford cattle to youth across the country, assisting them in their youth projects. Debbie showed cattle through her 4-H project exhibiting steers and purebred Angus cattle throughout the state of Missouri.
After Craig and Debbie married in 1984, “Bacon Polled Herefords” evolved and has expanded to “Bacon Herefords” today, including polled and horned genetics. 1987 marked Cassie’s first Junior Nationals to attend at 6 months old. When Cassie turned 7 and was finally eligible to show our family began exhibiting at junior nationals all over the country, and we haven’t missed one since! Each year we exhibit at numerous shows across the country and gather with Hereford friends from coast-to-coast at shows such as the JNHE, the Southwestern Livestock Exposition, the North American International Livestock Expo, the National Western, the American Royal, the Missouri State Fair and many more.
With 100 females in production, we select quality Hereford cattle, preferring sound, heavy muscled, easy doing cattle, that also excel in the areas of milk production and udder soundness. We strive to produce cattle that can perform in the pasture, and still achieve success in show rings across the country. We are in the business of producing quality seedstock to sell registered Hereford bulls and heifers to purebred breeders and the commercial cattlemen.
We want to provide our customers with the very best cattle to fit their herd needs. We are not only in the business of producing Hereford cattle, but more importantly we also strive to focus on youth in agriculture because they are the future of the industry. When purchasing cattle from us, we will do everything we can to assist you in being successful because there is nothing we enjoy seeing more than our customer’s having success with our genetics.
