DMR Herefords uses a combination of AI and natural service sires in the breeding program. All bulls are selected under strict criteria for sound structure, milk production, muscle expression, calving ease, and good temperament. This philosophy has meant that the use of polled and horned genetics has not been a factor as if bull meets the criteria it does not matter if it is horned or polled.
GH SL Super Stud 89S
Super Stud is owned by Gateway Herefords ( Billy Hayden) and was used on the whole DMR herd along with 30 heifers at Gateway during the 2007 breeding season. The resulting calves were born out at Hirsche Herefords and Grant was very pleased with the calves. Super Stud has excellent structure with strong bone in his legs and extreme length. His sire was GH Stout Line ET 87P an Online x Pearl which combined the top genetics from both the polled and horned sides of the breed. All this and he is an extremely low birth weight easy calving bull.
