It’s All AboutQuality Genetics

  • Our genetics are based on years of experience, a rigorous culling program, and a commitment to breed practical and functional Herefords.

    We utilize EPD’s as a reference tool.  We still look at our cattle and are constantly evaluating them to provide the best quality Herefords we can. Our cows are culled based on fertility, soundness, structure and utter quality.

  • The “Pelton Performance Formula”: Length x Thickness x Depth = Pounds of Beef

    We breed easy fleshing, high performance Herefords that have great feet and legs. Females that have longevity, excellent udders, raise heavy calves and are maintenance free. The Hereford bulls we offer are stout, fertile and durable.  We make a living from our Herefords and commercial beef cattle.

  • We value our customers.

    We stand behind the cattle we sell.  We value your input so we can continue to provide you with excellent service and high-quality cattle. We are always available.  We have been breeding and making a living from our Hereford cattle for over 45 years.

Get to Know the Peltons

Pelton Polled Herefords is operated by Craig, along with his son Kain and his wife Abbey, as well as his daughter Kayla and her husband Tyrun Dorrell, out of Halliday, ND. Starting out as a small herd over 45 years ago, we have always strived to produce high quality, real world genetics with the commercial cattleman in mind.
