The Rausch herd has been built with a traditional mindset of making fertile, practical cattle that go to work year in and year out. Each cow in the herd was born and raised in our northern plains environment where we experience the feasts and famines of our region. We cull rigidly for feet, eye, and udder quality and especially disposition. The cows are built to be bulletproof and still maintain the eye appeal expected of modern, registered cattle.
#1 Dams of Distinction Herd
Our herd has produced the most Dams of Distinction in the Hereford breed for over 40 years. The Dams of Distinction (DOD) program recognizes superior cows in the breed and the cattle producers who manage them based on data submitted to the American Hereford Association (AHA). Efficient, fertile and productive females are the foundation of the most successful cow herds. We are proud to produce females that help build the reputation of Hereford cows in the beef industry.
Pick of the Herd
We throw open all the gates and offer a pick of any female in our herd once a year at the National Hereford Sale.
You'll have the opportunity to sort through 100 exciting bred heifers or pick a proven Dam of Distinction from over 1,000 mature cows.

Past Pick of the Herd Females
"R Miss Addition 2569 was our past National Hereford Sale pick from Rausch Herefords. Selected for her high level of genotype and look of phenotype, we feel she has an unbelievable upside of becoming the next big-time donor at Express Ranches."
