For what it's worth, a customer of mine recently went to/through Greenwillow for 6 Hereford bulls, and was Extremely pleased with his purchases. Thank you again for your help, Greenwillow. Ryan

There are still cattlemen in these parts that believe that horned herefords are better than polled. As in bigger, hardier, more growth. I researched it a couple of years ago when looking for a hereford bull, and there is really no evidence that I could find to support that "old wives tale".

The gentleman that myself and Greenwillow helped, thought the same way. At first he wanted to get horned, because he was under the impression they were better. He thought that way, because that is what his dad and grandad always told him. He ended up with polled bulls that he says are better than the horned bulls he had been looking at.

Yea I definetely got alot more of an idea where to look, I'm so busy right now with work and moving into a new house i'm not sure when I will have a day off to make a drive and look in person, Oakcreekfarms sent a pic of a polled bull that I would like to go see in person but Kansas is a pretty long drive for me , probably 8 hours or so.
