Bigger is not always better!
Miniature Herefords are smaller than the average size cow, the average female can weigh anywhere from 650 to 800+ pounds and bulls can get up to 1000+ pounds. When compared to a traditional full sized cow which can range from 1200 to 2000+ pounds. Miniature Herefords are known to be more docile and easy to work with and show.
As with the traditional cow which requires approximately 1.5 to 2 acres to feed a cow and calf, you can raise 10 miniature cows on just five acres very well. Which allows smaller ranches to successfully raise, breed, and sell miniatures.
