The Chevy Hereford Bull Iowa Style

Another Super Bowl is over. In my opinion it is a good thing that there were some good commercials because it was all a little underwhelming. I will have to say that one of my favorite commercials was the Chevy Super Bowl Commercial "Romance."


The Boy found out that the bull in the video goes back to Star Lake (his dad and grandpa's ranch that was sold in 2012) bloodlines. Although, it was neat to see a Hereford bull in the ad since that is what the Boy and I raise, we like to think that we have our own superstar Hereford bull.


Parker is our Hereford bull that we will be selling in the Iowa Beef Expo in February. He will be bought by another cattlemen and turned out with a pasture full of ladies this spring for a little "romance." This weekend we spent primping, washing and clipping Parker for his video debut.


I am definitely going to miss Parker. He is kind of like my big baby, but I can't wait to see what kind of calves he'll produce. His mom, Teardrop, has another bull calf inside of her, and she will be calving this spring. Who knows if she'll be mother to another superstar.

  1. Parker is beautiful! I'll bet you will be very sad to see him go. My niece is exhibiting a Hereford steer this year, Hank. Hank is a big baby doll, one of the sweetest steers we have ever had. He was perfect for a first time showman. Hank will be at the Ft. Worth steer show this week and I have a feeling he will make sale. There will be tears if we have to say goodbye to our Hankie-Poo on Saturday!

    1. Good luck to your niece on Ft. Worth. That is such a cool steer show.

  2. Parker grew up into a fine looking gentleman. I just loved that Hereford/chevy commercial. Makes me want to play music when we turn bulls out! ha ha!

  3. I think there is nothing quite like the R&W faces, such great dispositions and I think it's so often some of the most down to earth folks who raise them (maybe I'm biased..haha) Nice to see one represented on such a large scale.

    Parker looks great!
