Welcome to burks cattle

We are a small family farm located in south central Kentucky where we produce Registered Angus and Hereford cattle. Our parents, Leroyce & Ima Burks, purchased their first registered Hereford cattle in 1963 for their 85 acre home place which they operated as “Hereford Valley Farms” until their retirement dispersal in 1996. This allowed them to raise three sons who were actively involved in 4-H, FFA and youth breed programs. With adjoining land acquisitions the 85 acre home place now encompasses nearly 500 acres, which 300 acres are in pasture and hay for the cattle operation and the balance is used for row crop production.

our main goal is to produce eye appealing, balanced trait, performance cattle with a strong emphasis on producing calving ease bulls for our commercial customers
