Blackhereford

Black Herefords are a hybrid breed developed by crossing Hereford and Angus cattle and having at least 62.5% registered Hereford blood, black in color and sired by a bull registered by the American Black Hereford Association. Most have traditional white markings of a Hereford but black hided instead of red.

The American Black Hereford Association was established in 1994. The first cattle to qualify were registered in 1997.

In 2002, Black Hereford became a registered trademark with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

In 2003, Black Herefords received international breed designation from the National Association of Animal breeders.

EPD's were established for Black Herefords as a separate beef breed in 2005.

2013 Black Hereford 01-24.indd
The high selling heifer in the 2013 BLACK HEREFORD SALE

2011 was a good year for Triple L Ranch, and we expect 2012 to be the same. We are excited to say we held our first sale this year with other Black Hereford breeders.

We were fortunate to be able to buy all the outstanding cattle and a great herd bull battery from Iron Lake Ranch.

We are partners on several flushes and embryos, and Iron Lake retained an interest in a few of their bulls. Iron Lake will be a great partner helping improve the Black Hereford genetics, and with the purchase of these cattle we greatly improved the genetics of our herd. We look forward to working with Iron Lake in the years to come.

In 2011 we also purchased top quality Polled Hereford cattle from McIver’s Happy Acres in Minnesota. These excellent heifers will be used to improve the Black Hereford quality and we believe the progeny from these heifers will be above the top , and help us start a new genetic line for the Black Hereford breed.

After purchasing cattle herds from across the united states we believe Triple L has one of the most powerful herd bull batteries, and top quality cows, in the Black Hereford breed.

Triple L purchased the stock of Wild Rose Black Hereford Ranch in California in 2010. Among the cattle purchased is the top selling bull from J&N’s 2008 auction, WR Curve Bender 8616, and he is now available to you through our AI program and his offspring. We have his sons and daughters for sale and they are making excellent herd sires and replacement heifers. He and our other fine Homozygous Black bulls provide great potential for improving the breed.

At the J&N Ranch 2010 auction, Triple L purchased, in partnership with J Bar B Cattle Company, the top selling bull, JN Balder 9498, a homozygous black bull, and his calves hit the ground in 2011. We will offer some of his offspring in our March 10, 2012 sale in Alvarado Texas.

Once again at the J&N sale in 2011 we purchased the top selling bull. Lot number #22, JN Balder 0449, was the bull we felt had the most potential, and we will have his calves on the ground the spring of 2012. Also at that sale, Triple L along with D-T ranch purchased ½ interest and full possession of the great 6449 bull. He is the sire of Curve Bender and is proven in our industry as being one of the best, Black Hereford bulls that ever sired a calf.

Black Herefords provide all the traits that breeders and consumers need; quality of meat, low birth weight (easy birthing), high weaning weight, strong, wide meaty bodies and legs, top Igenity profile stats, mild temperament, and consistent breeding results. And in addition, their black hides satisfy the current market color trend for top selling animals.

Triple L Ranch is breeding the best and supporting the breed through semen and embryo sales to other breeders. We now have sexed semen on Curve Bender 8616, and offer semen on all of our bulls. Our embryos are from either Homozygous bulls or cows so any offspring from our embryos will be black.

Black Herefords

Ranches in Texas tend to involve the whole family. It takes work and dedication to build and maintain a ranch. The land provides, but it also demands work, dedication, and a certain kind of love of the land. Triple L Ranch owners, Bobby and Jared Lide started the ranch as a family enterprise. They are building the family’s heritage. They take pride in their ranch and are determined to make Triple L Black Hereford Ranch a premier source of Black Hereford breeding stock.
