Jarman Herefords

The Mark Donald line of Hereford cattle was developed basically as a closed, intensely line bred Hereford cow family in a hand full of herds in Northwest United States in the 1940’s and 50’s. During that era when the small, compact cattle were popular in the show ring these foundation Mark Donald breeders never veered from breeding functional, “real world” cattle. As a result the Mark Donald cattle have always been big, easy-fleshing, fast growing cattle. The females were always fertile, good milking, high-volume beef cows that thrived on the western range.

Their bred in superior carcass traits and ability to perform under range conditions propelled them to national prominence in the 1960’s and 70’s. They absolutely dominated the Register of Merit carcass testing that was done by the American Hereford Association at that time.

Unfortunately in the late 70’s and early 80’s, because of various dispersion sales, herds changing hands and other herds changing management,  the line breeding principles that made them great were abandoned and they virtually became extinct. But, even yet today, years later, because of their line bred prepotency, their influence is very much felt in modern day Hereford breeding programs. 

The Mark Donald line of cattle offers pedigree integrity, superior carcass and maternal performance, as well as a time-tested proven cross on the Line One cattle.
