Iowa Junior Chianina Association Field Day

From RHH Miniature Herefords | Iowa

 Iowa Beef Expo Miniature Hereford Sale
Sunday, February 8th, 2015
Big Thanks to Conover Auction for taking on this sale!
 
RHH SNOWFLAKE
Let's just start by saying the herdsman and hired help didn't have a say or this one wouldn't be selling... This one is flat AWESOME! Sound as our old barn cat, as good lookin as the models on the Victorias Secret fashion show, and as we have all heard the hit song All About That Bass this one has all the right junk in all the right places. RHH Snowflake looks like that breeding heifer we all want to have at home. Bid early and Bid often cuz you won't want to show against this one as the show year continues.
 RHH FRANKLIN
Selling Sunday at Iowa Beef Expo
This polled October steer calf is young but don't let that fool ya. This one is for a lack of better terms a BADASS! If you want them powerful and cool looking yet maintain that soundness we all desire look no further. I'd rather be showing him than getting beat by him folks.
RHH DEWALT
This bull calf is selling on the Iowa Beef Expo Mini Herford Sale. This bull is super good built from the ground up. A big footed big boned sound bull that is very functional and maintains a great look. Dewalt is stout made with a big square hip and quarter. Feed this one and watch great things happen as he is from a line of high sellers and champions from jackpots to the majors.
