Polled Herefords Breeding Program in Franklin, TN - Breeding Program

Breeding Program

Triple L Ranch has been breeding Polled Herefords for 46 years encompassing three generations. During that time we have visited herds in 42 states and 5 provinces of Canada searching for the very best Hereford.

Our breeding program is unique in that it is based on stacking the pedigree with the genetics of proven great donor dams, Dams of Distinction and sires designated as Sires of Distinction which have produced seven or more Dams of Distinction. Less than 2 % of the cows in the breed are Dams of Distinction. For 15 years we have collected yearling carcass data on both bulls and heifers utilizing ultra sound. We have used this data in our breeding program as we are in the Hereford beef improvement business. This is shown by the number of designated carcass improving sires identified as CHB sires that appear in the pedigrees. Three of our sires, Farley 24F, Cattleman 49H and LLL Affirmative 56N have achieved CHB status. We have produced 27 Dams of Distinction plus several cows purchased from us have achieved Dams of Distinction for their new owners. We have been on a total herd performance testing program for 40 years and we were one of the very first breeders honored by being named a Gold TPR Breeder. Although the show ring has not been the focus of our breeding program, Triple L Ranch cattle have been very competitive in the show ring on a State and National level. Our cattle have been picked as class winners and champions in the State, Jr National and National shows. In the past 15 sales at the farm our cattle have repeatedly sold to breeders in 38 states proving the adaptability and acceptance of our genetic breeding program. In addition, semen from our sires has been sold to breeders all across America and to Australia, Argentina, Canada and New Zealand, further proving the acceptance of our breeding program.
