​Two Byrds Firefly
Silver heifer born January 14, 2018 .

Very sweet little silver heifer. This heifer is being evaluated for show quality.  She is being started with the halter and we take it really slow. So far she has done really well with the touch of the halter and putting it on.  She is not convinced yet that she wants to walk with it on though!

​Naturally polled
​Often times beef cattle are difficult to manage because of their disposition.  Murray Greys are well known for being gentle.  Boulder's owner says that he has the disposition of a labrador.
​Not a mini by any means, these cows are typically 1000 - 1500 lbs and bulls 1800 - 2500 lbs.  Our mature cows are in the 1000-1300 lb range.
​Developed in Austrailia in 1905 - 1918 by breeding a roan Shorthorn cow with black Aberdeen Angus bulls.  The grey calves from that original cow were favored in the predominately Angus area.
Colors, ​colors, colors...
​Purebred Murray Grey cattle can range from light silver (Cleo) to black in color.  White patches above the belly disqualify purebred animals from registration.  The skin is dark (see the nose)-- which helps prevent eye and nose cancers.
​​​Registered Percentage Murray Grey cattle can be any color.  One parent must be registered to qualify for registration. A 7/8 Murray Grey can qualify for purebred registration if they qualify with all the color and skin requirements.
