Ridder Hereford Ranch


Breed. Calve. Pounds. Re-breed. Herefords do it well. Ridder Herefords do it very well.

The 2022 Sale date has been set. Thursday, Feb. 3rd, at our ranch and again online at DV Auction. Please revisit us here in the fall for the Auction, Catalog and Video links. Our 2021 Sale was a success, and John and Mary invite you to Review of our 2021 sale catalog available HERE and the Herd Videos are HERE.

We’ve said it before – our customers demand length, performance, disposition, and ease of birth, and we must provide these. We select for eye appeal, carcass traits, performance, cow traits, disposition, calving ease, and are unforgiving when culling our cow herd.

Below are our few of current Herd Sires, all linked to the American Hereford Association’s website for pedigrees, performance, and epd’s.  Click HERE or the “Herd Sires” button below to view all of our outstanding Herd Sires.

LBH 6103 Advance 236F

Took 236F’s picture from his video at Lilybrook in Alberta. He was bound for the Medicine Hat sale when the sale was canceled in spring 2020, so we were fortunate to learn about him in time to purchase him in late spring 2020. He’s a handsome bull and we are anxious to see his calves in 2021.

LBH 2237B Billy Lad 203E

From Lilybrook in Alberta. We are excited about this new Herd Sire. 203E has terrific thickness and correctness. He has a very solid EPD profile. Red eyed with a great hair coat. His first sons and daughters sell in our 2021 production sale.

KB L1 Domino 623D

This Bull has grown up to be a very impressive Sire. His sons throw a lot of calving ease, maternal greatness, and top end carcass traits. Sires style and muscle. Natural superiority in udder and teat scores. Calves are smaller and vigorous at birth.

Why Us?

While standing on the shoulders of family and fellow breeders who came before us, we also look forward through the eyes of our children who all remain vitally involved in our ranch while pursuing their individual careers.
