This is the heifer that started the Cookie cow Family. Morgan was 7 years old.

Welcome to Woody Polled Herefords, established in 1982 in New Hope, about 5 miles northeast of McKinney, Texas.

McKinney and New Hope are located in Collin County in North Central Texas, 30-35 miles north of Dallas via North Central Expressway/U.S. Hwy. 75. 
Our main pasture is located northwest of McKinney and west of Chambersville.   Please call Gary at 972/658-6903 to meet you there.   

Our primary goal is to provide show heifers and steers for the Texas junior shows.  All our cows originated from three show heifers.  Morgan wanted to show, so we decided to raise our own show heifers and steers.  We thought we could raise better quality cattle than we could afford to buy.  Every cow in our herd is the result of artificial insemination or embryo transfer.  We’ve always tried to use the top AI bulls.

At WPH, we are building our herd to produce functional and efficient Polled and horned Hereford cattle utilizing all available tools.  We’re passionate about our high standards for combining visual appraisal, proven genetic values and technology to create a program that will provide the highest quality genetics not only for us, but also for our customers. 


This cow, 8W, is a 6th generation Cookie Cow.

Gary began showing cattle at age 9, and has 35 years of ag-teaching experience in Texas. 
Morgan began showing cattle in third grade, and continued throughout her high school years.  She exhibited the 1996 Champion Heifer at the Houston Livestock Show, Reserve Grand at Fort Worth’s extremely competitive Southwestern Exposition & Livestock Show, plus numerous class and division winners in major Texas junior shows, including a class-winning heavy-weight PH steer in Fort Worth.

We feel that the cow herd of 35 head has now reached our goal of producing quality show heifers and steers.  These cattle are daughters of Wrangler 19D, Keynote, Boomer P606, Online, Topline, 146, Devo and Desert Red.  We are breeding these cows to Grand View Sonora, Wrangler 19D, Git-R-Done, TFR Cyrus 225 ET, TH 122 711 Victor 719T, TH 71U 719T Mr. Hereford 11X, and  P606 .   We usually calve in September, October, March and April.
