We are a small farm located near Mason City in north-central Iowa that has had miniature cattle since 1993. Our goal has always been the same, to have healthy and colorful miniature cattle under 36 inches. We are breeding what we like to call Western Heritage Miniature Cattle. They have the conformation and color variety of longhorn type cattle. Something like you may have seen in the old west. Small and colorful.
Ripley (above) is a great example of what we are trying to do. Ripley is a 37 inch bull with lots of horn and color. We have many of his calves as well as his grandchildren in our herd. We also have brindles, speckled and spotted cattle. The more color the better.
We have cows that range in size from 31 to 38 inches tall. We have a wide range of colors. Many of our cows have had 3 calves from the same bull and they have all been different colors. That is what we like to see.
Our calves range in size from 17 to 22 inches tall when they are born. The birth weights are 20-30 lbs. They are healthy, full of energy and up and playing within a couple of hours. Most are born outside in the pasture when they are born.
If you like what you see and want to add some colorful miniature cattle to your front pasture, give us a call.
