Eddie Watson of Cabool was recently recognized by the American Hereford Association for producing a cow named to the Dams of Distinction list.
“These are the most efficient cows in the Hereford breed,” said Craig Huffhines, AHA’s executive secretary.
They have met the strictest requirements for early calving, reproductive efficiency, calving intervals or no greater than one year and weaning weight ratios in the top end of the breeder’s herd.
Some 1,938 cows were named to the prestigious list. An article reviewing Dams of Distinction is published in the April issue of Hereford World Magazine, the breed’s official publication.
