Welcome to Schutte & Sons, S&S Polled Herefords of Guide Rock, Nebraska.  We are located only a few miles from the geographical center of the United States, in one of the more historic regions of Nebraska.

Our Polled Hereford herd began in 1952 when our father, the late Alfred Schutte, purchased two cows and one bull.  At the present time our cowherd numbers 170 head. Our herd has been basically closed to outside females for over 40 years, so the bulk of the cowherd traces to just a few original cow families.

We have been in the purebred Polled Hereford business for 60 years and have sold cattle to ranches in more than 32 states, Canada and Argentina.  Each year we hold a production sale the first Tuesday in March, focusing on commercial bulls and top replacement females.

Our Family

Ron and his wife Nancy. 

Daughter Melissa, her husband John Turner and their son Simon.

Daughter Amy, her husband Brad Edgar their daughter Avery and their son Lleyton.

Daughter Nichole, her husband John Schumm and their sons, Trenton and Evan.

And their granddaughter Savannah (Ben's daughter). 

Willie and Afton Alber and daughters Kaisha and Brenlee are our hired help.

At the present time none of our children are actively involved in our operation, but they take great interest in what goes on with our cattle, having been involved in 4-H and showing cattle while they were still at home. 

Again, welcome to our ranch.   We look forward to seeing you at our production sale, the first Tuesday in March.
