Welcome to the International Miniature Cattle Breeder’s Registry

IMCBR is the world’s oldest and largest registry of miniature cattle. IMCBR’s founder, Professor Emeritus Richard Gradwohl (1936-2011), created over 18 trademarked miniature cattle breeds. IMCBR now recognizes over 26 unique breeds worldwide.

In July 2022, IMCBR began converting our miniature cattle registry to a new electronic format. This work will allow us to serve you and the rest of the community for many years to come.

Ridge and Valley Appalachian Farm

Ridge and Valley Appalachian Farm is a family-owned farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We raise & breed Miniature Highland, Hereford and cross-breed cattle.

Ridge and Valley Appalachian Farm was established by 1st generation farmers, Cameron and Elly, who decided they wanted their children to experience the joy and pride of self-sufficiency and raising farm animals.

Elly fell in love with Miniature Highlands and Herefords because of their beauty and gentle disposition. Cameron loves the more logical aspect of them – the breeds are both gentle (safe for kids to help with the care of), smaller in size, and are “easy keepers”.

Our dream is that your family is also able to experience the joy and beauty of raising farm animals, regardless of the size of your homestead.
