Hereford Cattle For Sale: Experience The Hereford Advantage
Ehlke Herefords is nestled in the Big Belt mountains of Montana, operating on 5000 acres of owned and leased ground, in the shadow of Mount Baldy.
Owned by Mark and Della Ehlke, along with their daughters, Lacey Jo and Jane’a. The Ehlke family prides themselves on producing sound, functional cattle that will work in all environments.
Past sires of influence in our registered Hereford cow herd include Ranger 9615, Ribstone Standard 27L, and Anchor bloodlines. The group also includes replacement heifers we have retained from select matings with our JV Shirley 414 cow. We also run a commercial black Angus cow herd that goes back to North Fork Angus breeding.
Our breeding philosophy is to focus on the female. It takes an exceptional cow to produce replacement quality breeding animals. Our cows are expected to perform: calve and mother without assistance, breed back in a timely manner, and wean a good calf. The registered Hereford cattle for sale are managed the same as the commercial cows; we don’t single trait select, nor do we select for extremes, we select for traits that will complement one another.
Ehlke Herefords’ current pasture and AI sires are polled. Ultrasound data is collected on all replacement heifers and bull calves. Our herd is tested anually for BVD PI to ensure we retain a negative status. Bulls are sold private treaty each spring.
Visitors are welcome and encouraged. We are situated in the heart of Big Sky Country, with open meadows, sparkling streams, and abundant wildlife. To schedule a visit to the ranch or for information regarding our Hereford Cattle Sale, which will be in September at the Mohican West and Guests Sale, please contact us at 406.266.4121 or proceed to our contact us page.
