Welcome to JKW Polled Herefords!

We are located in the Hudson Valley, just south of Capital District, overlooking the Catskill Mountains. We focus on producing breeding cattle that exceed the breed averages for calving ease, growth and efficiency.

The Gold TPR program was established in 2005 to recognize those breeders who participate in the Association’s Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) Program.

To qualify for the award the breeder must:

  • Submit his or her herd inventory prior to the inventory surcharge deadline;
  • Have on record at AHA a complete report of calving ease and reproductive status for each dam on the inventory;
  • A complete set of birth, weaning and yearling weights is also required as well as scrotal measurements for each bull calf with a recorded yearling weight;
  • Ultrasound data on 25% or more of their calf crop.
