Delaney Herefords Inc., a family run business located in Southwestern Minnesota, has been raising quality Hereford cattle for 80 years. Jack Delaney began in the Hereford business in 1936 with his very first Hereford heifer that brought a Purple Ribbon at the Minnesota State 4-H Show. He continued working to build a herd and, in 1969, established Delaney Herefords Inc. with his wife Dorothy and their six children. Today, Delaney Herefords is owned by Jack’s son Jerry, his wife Shelly, and their family. They calve out 175 females yearly, manage 1,500 acres of cropland and maintain 500 acres of pasture.
A strong focus on sound, efficient, and fertile females is the foundation of our program. We strive to breed cattle that are both predictable and productive; while preserving eye appeal and style. We utilize Embryo Transplantation, Artificial Insemination, Total Performance Records and ultrasound data to improve and grow our herd year after year.
