Alyssa and her family have been recognized with five World Championships for their Miniature Hereford breeding stock -- the 2010 World Reserve Grand Champion Female, the 2011 World Grand Champion Cow/Calf pair, the 2012 World Grand Champion Bull, the 2014 World Grand Champion Female, and the 2019 World Reserve Grand Champion Bull.
Alyssa grew up on her family's century farm (est. 1903) in Silverton, Oregon, where they produce fine fescue grass seed, seed oats, and hay. In 2004, the family switched from raising commercial beef cattle to registered Miniature Hereford cattle for breeding and show stock. You can usually find Alyssa and her family exhibiting their cattle at livestock shows in Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Colorado. When not exhibiting cattle, Alyssa is back on the farm assisting with the daily operations and management practices.
