GVF Herefords is a third generation family farm located outside of Northfield, Minnesota and since 1954, the Koester's have been raising quality registered Hereford cattle. A charter member of the Minnesota Junior Hereford Association, Dan married Karen and together, raised two daughters (Audra and Barbara) on the family farm. Today, the farm set in a golden valley continues to be a family operation--Dan, Karen, Audra and Barbara work together on a cattle management system that carefully selects for structural correctness, disposition and strong maternal characteristics.
Like many family farmers, GVF Herefords champions land conservation and stewardship. GVF Herefords has worked with the University of Minnesota on a watershed management project to protect a native stream on the main farm. The Koester's have also invited researches to identify native prairie plants found on the farm that are becoming rare in Southeast Minnesota.
Long a supporter of agricultural education and youth leadership development, GVF Herefords remains active in various Hereford breed and agricultural organizations, and supports local 4-Hers, opening the farm to kids interested in leasing a calf to show or those wanting to learn the art of animal husbandry.
The Koester's often entertain those who want to desire to walk the peaceful pastures, want their children to experience bottle feeding calves, or those wanting to take a tour of the farm and learn about the operation. Consider this your open invitation to visit GVF Herefords today!
