About Christ the Rock Herefords:

 We are a family operation dedicated to providing quality seedstock that will help you build value into your own herd. Whether you are looking for purebred Herefords to bring an outcross line into your operation – or if you are looking for good Hereford bloodlines to cross and maximize heterosis with an Angus or other commercial herd – we have options for both. We continue to change with the times to keep up with the industry.   Private Treaty Sales 


How the Pastor got into the Pasture:

 I grew up in Chaska, MN where I had a small farm and was very active in 4H and cattle showing. After high school I went to college to begin studies in Animal Science. However within two years my life brought changes, which included getting married and moving in a different direction. I began my studies for the Office of the Holy Ministry. I have been a pastor in a Bible based Lutheran church (The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod) for 34 years. In 2001, my wife and I purchased a small farm north of St. Croix Falls, WI. It was here that we would begin our own Hereford farm. Big Rock Creek flows through our land, so we decided to name our Hereford farm “Christ the Rock ~ Creek Farm”. Now I have come full circle. I started out farming and now am able to serve the Lord plus raise cattle. That is why our farm promotes our Lord, our Lutheran Church, and the cattle we love. We have great compassion for our animals and they are treated with much care and respect. It is a great form of therapy and enjoyment for the two of us.
