A major source for heritage MILKING SHORTHORN and DUTCH BELTED sires.
Winifred and the late Kenneth Hoffman, with their family, have preserved the heritage of these two rare breeds.
They maintain their own breeding herds in both breeds at their farm in Earlville, IL.
Cattle are managed on a "100% grassfed" basis, which is consistent with the original devleopment of both breeds.
All sires have "aAa" analysis, and most have been tested for Beta Casein.
Daughter Martha Hoffman is becoming well-known as an animal agriculture journalist.
Those seeking foundation cattle in either breed will find the Hoffman family can always find you something.
