Crescent Hill Black Herefords was establish in 2012 by Chad and Kaitlin Jones. CHBH began with the purchase of JN Balder Y498, who was our first herd sire. In the spring of 2013, Doug and Susie Jones became partners in CHBH.
Crescent Hill Black Herefords goal is to produce and sell Black Hereford bulls and heifers that are appealing and profitable.
As a family, we have been in the cattle business since 2006. It had always been my dream to start a registered herd. In 2012, we purchased our first set of registered cattle when our oldest son was only a few months old. We were drawn to the Black Hereford breed because I have always loved Hereford cattle but running so few of head, I struggled with the low prices we would get at the sale barn. That is when we discovered Black Herefords. They have the same great disposition that Herefords have as well as the forgeability. The one big bonus is the black hide. It's what we call, the best of both worlds. Our goal is to be at this for a long time and create something that we can pass on for generations to come.
Now, CHBH is truly a family business and all 3 of our children enjoy being around the cattle. My wife and I both teach and coach and our kids are involved in sports, which makes for some interesting calving season and some long days and nights.
