Our Program

LOV Mini Herefords at Red Barn Farm in Shelby, Ohio, which is approximately halfway between Cleveland and Columbus, is a small farm raising Miniature Hereford cattle from some of the best Miniature Hereford genetics available. How did we get the LOV name? From Ben and Nicole Lynch, Mike and Nancy Oehlhof, and Logan Vail, LOV originated from these three families whose focus was to create a Mini Hereford operation to serve the United States.

The LOV Mini Hereford Genetic Philosophy

At LOV Mini Herefords, we believe that every hereford should be raised well and bred to have strong, high-quality genetics to pass down from generation to generation. Our mini herefords are strong, adaptable and docile in nature. Their genetics have been proven time and time again to be champions, becoming highly valuable to the herds they reside in.

Mini Hereford Donors

Our mini hereford donors at LOV play a crucial role in the Mini Hereford breed, producing and nurturing offspring that exhibit desirable traits.
