2019 BREEDER OF THE YEAR RECIPIENT

BUCK CATTLE CO.

   In 1989, Buck Cattle Company began with Maine-Anjou females with the focus of producing show prospects and breeding cattle. Buck Cattle Co was highly competitive in the junior heifer shows for many years producing multiple State and National Champions. When Bailey began showing, they searched for a different breed in order to not compete against their customers. In 2009, Buck’s made their first Hereford purchase. The breeders, people involved, and the quality of the cattle are what encouraged Buck Cattle Co. to begin a Hereford cow herd. Today Buck Cattle Co produces 300 head of Herefords annually. The Hereford business has been good to the Buck family and they look forward to the future. In the past 10 years, the Buck Program has produced or owned 15 Hereford National Champions. Buck Cattle Company is owned by Jirl, his wife Brenda, and daughter Bailey. They have production sales each March and October and online sales throughout the year. Although the ranch has primarily been a registered Maine-Anjou and Hereford cattle operation, Jirl also partners with D&H Cattle Company on several PBR and PRCA bucking bulls and females. Buck Cattle Co. is very grateful to be selected by the Oklahoma Hereford Association for this honor.
