Gregory Polled Herefords

Est. 1932 • Houstonia, Missouri

GREGORY POLLED HEREFORDS BEGAN IN 1932 WHEN EARL & MARY GREGORY RECEIVED A HEREFORD HEIFER AS A WEDDING GIFT FROM MARY’S PARENTS.  THEY PURCHASED A FARM A FEW YEARS LATER AND MOVED TO HOUSTONIA, MO WHERE THEY RAISED THEIR FAMILY, 3 SONS AND CATTLE AND FARMED.  JD GREGORY AND ROBERT GREGORY CONTINUED WITH THE FARM AFTER THEY GREW UP AND LIVED ON THE FAMILY LAND.  IN 1949 EARL BECAME A MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN HEREFORD ASSOCIATION, 1955 HE BECAME A MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN POLLED HEREFORD ASSOC. 

AND IN 1968 BECAME A MEMBER OF THE CENTRAL MISSOURI POLLED HEREFORD BREEDERS ASSOCIATION.  EARL WAS ALSO THE FIRST GENTLEMAN TO BE INDUCTED INTO THE MISSOURI POLLED HEREFORD HALL OF FAME IN 1992.

MOST PEOPLE REMEMBER EARL AND JD GREGORY FOR THEIR LOVE OF POLLED HEREFORD CATTLE AND FAMILY.  JD AND ROBERT GREGORY FARMED TOGETHER UNTIL 2013 WHEN JD, KEVIN AND HIS FAMILY CONTINUED WITH GREGORY POLLED HEREFORDS.  ALL 4 OF KEVIN & BARBARA’S DAUGHTERS, JENNIFER GREGORY SNEED, DEVANN GREGORY CATLETT, MORGANN GREGORY & JORDANN GREGORY VOSS CONTINUE THE LEGACY THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN AS WELL.

KEVIN AND HIS FAMILY CONTINUE TO SELL CATTLE AT THE CENTRAL MISSOURI POLLED HEREFORD SALE AND HAVE FOR THE PAST 53 YEARS. KEVIN AND JD BOTH WERE PRESIDENTS OF THE ASSOCIATION IN PREVIOUS YEARS.    KEVIN LIKES TO DESCRIBE HIS GRANDFATHER EARL AND FATHER J.D. AS MEN WHO WORKED HARD, WEREN’T AFRAID TO GET THEIR HANDS DIRTY AND WERE MEN OF THEIR WORD.  THE HERD THAT KEVIN AND HIS FAMILY MAINTAIN  HAS 100 REGISTERED CATTLE AND 25 COMMERCIAL POLLED HEREFORD/ RED ANGUS CATTLE.  

GREGORY POLLED HEREFORDS ENTER THEIR 88TH YEAR RAISING REGISTERED POLLED HEREFORD CATTLE.
