How big are they really?

Most breeders will list either a Mature Frame Score or current height along with an animal’s sale statistics.  Frame Score charts should be easily available to convert the Frame Score into inches, and then you should probably get out your tape measure.  45 inches tall may not sound like much, but when you add two feet of width, almost 1000 pounds of beef all wrapped in a hairy hide, they can be larger than you thought.  Miniature Herefords are roughly half the size of their Modern counterparts, but they are still cattle.  For information on Frame Scores, see How do I measure my Mini?
