Welcome to McGuffee Polled Herefords
MCGUFFEE POLLED HEREFORDS is located in Mendenhall, Mississippi. This family owned and operated Polled Hereford breeding establishment began more than 37 years ago, like many modern day herds as a junior project. When Walker's Great Granddaddy, Earl, and Granddaddy, Joe, went to a Hereford dispersal as commercial cattlemen to purchase bulls and came home with a registered cow, that in 1977, gave birth to our first registered Polled Hereford calf. This calf, named “Sunshine” became Ryan's first 4H project, and produced seven calves that Kim and Ryan would show over the years.
MCGUFFEE POLLED HEREFORDS was born, breeding a productive, functional, and profitable herd of Polled Hereford cattle. By the 1980s and 1990s McGuffee Polled Herefords became one of the largest Polled Hereford breeders east of the Mississippi River. Our productive sales in the 1990s, were a very successful time for us, and many of you, we would still like to say thank you.
MCGUFFEE POLLED HEREFORDS has transitioned over the years, and in 2002, we made the decision to continue to breed 150 cows to Polled Hereford bulls, without registering the calves. The other 250 cows were bred to Black Angus bulls. This program has been very rewarding to us.
IN 2012, JOE, RYAN AND WALKER MCGUFFEE began to rebuild our registered herd. We achieved this by starting an ET program, to take advantage of 200 Black Baldie mothers and eggs from some of the best Hereford herds in the country. We have also purchased some outstanding donor dams, which serve as the foundation to our new beginning.
TODAY, AT MCGUFFEE POLLED HEREFORDS, you can find some of the top performing cattle in the South. We produce cattle suited for both the show ring, and for the farmer who needs good maternal cattle that will perform in the pasture. We recognize that a show heifer must be both successful in the show ring and serve as a functional cow for the years following her show career. We also have a great selection of Hereford bulls available with good EPDs, and an excellent line-up of replacement heifers.
