Diamond R Cattle Co. was started in 1992 with the importation of the 1st herd of Miniature Herefords to the state of Montana.
Miniature Hefefords were developed in Texas by selectively breeding the old-fashioned type, small bodied Hereford for a smaller size, instead of for the largest frame size as with most cattle breeds.

Yearling Heifer
These little cattle when many aspects are looked at from early maturity rates, weaning ratios, carcass weights, etc. are far more practical and economical to use for beef production than almost all of the modern larger beef breeds. When you add the fact that these docile little animals can be stocked at twice the rate of larger cattle they become the perfect cattle for small hobby ranchers or backyard beef producers.
Since the early 1990's they have become popular and are being bred from coast to coast as well as being exported by embryo transfer to Australia and Europe. With their own classses now at many of the major stock shows the future looks extremely bright.
