Black Herefords are a hybrid breed developed by crossing Hereford and Angus cattle, having 62.5% registered  Hereford blood, black in color, and sired by a registered Hereford bull.

Most have the markings of Hereford but are black in color and have the same docility.

A Black Hereford Association begin in 1994 and registered their first cattle in 1997.

In 2003 Black Herefords received international breed designation from the National Association of Animal breeders, and  2005 EPDs were established for Black Herefords as a separate breed.

Triple L Ranch is experiencing the results of buying top quality cattle and breeding to powerful bulls. The breeding program we use is working! We produce offspring that works throughout the U.S. North, South, East and West.  We produce the best by breeding the best!

By partnering with Hereford breeder, Iron Lake Ranch, and Angus breeders, our Black Herefords work with any breed.

Triple L Ranch used knowledge from our Hereford and Angus friends and added it to our breeding program. These ranchers realized a long time ago that the Black Baldy is one of the best type cattle anywhere. Taking the Black Baldy, 50% Hereford 50% Angus, one step further, crossing it back to a Hereford, producing Black Herefords, is proven to be even better.

Here at Triple L Ranch our goal each year is to produce better Black Herefords. We not only set goals each year,  but we strive to meet the goals we set.

A few months ago we started using the phrase New Beginnings. This phrase is meant to tell you Triple L Ranch built Genetics that do not go back to Felton and Gauge genetics. We realized that someone had to make genetics that were not connected to other cattle families. And we knew we needed cattle with Big Rear Ends! We succeeded.

Using Genetics from well-known Angus and Hereford families we have produced a total out cross. These New Beginnings will help breeders expand the genetics in their cow herds and produce better Black Herefords.

Along with these New Beginnings a Black Hereford association called the WORLD BLACK HEREFORD ASSOCIATION was started.

We now have an association that is paperless. Our goal is to make registering and transferring cattle easy and be able to do it from your computer. No phone calls, No waiting on the U.S. Postal service, and no mailing checks to pay for services. Everything to do with Registered Cattle is at your fingertips, simple and easy to use. With this being said, we have an office manager available and she will be happy to answer your calls and help you with any questions you may have. Google World Black Hereford Association for more information. Or call 830-391-WBHA(9242). We are excited about this new association that allows you to register your first cross, 50% Hereford 50% Angus cattle with known parentage.

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.

Thank you for your interest in Black Hereford cattle.
