Our home is in Sequim, Wa. Very near the Straits of Juan De Fuca, thus the name Straitside Ranch. We began Straitside in 1994 with a dream. Our dream was to produce quality Polled Miniature Herefords. This endeavor took alot of work as well as perseverance, the results have been so very rewarding
We first contacted Rust Largent in 1993, we shared our dream of raising Polled Miniature Herefords. Rust was willing to join our endeavor. After having contacted Rust, Roy Largent called to tell us that he would be bringing us a horned miniature bull. We then located a group of small framed polled Hereford cattle.
In 1999 a polled bull was born at Straitside Ranch. Tracer was the first of our miniature bulls to produce polled cattle. Tracer was never tested for homozygous as that test was not yet available for Hereford cattle. As we all are aware homozygous polled has become very important to our breeding program.
Straitside is commited to develop Polled Miniature Herefords that will continue to improve the breed. We are so very excited about every new calf born here
