Photograph by Charles J.Belden "WHITE-FACES" ON THE RANGE Herefords and Hereford grades may be seen everywhere on Western ranches. On account of theirhardiness and rustling quality, they were admirably adapted to meet the hard conditions existing when the herds were maintained on the open range. With the advent, however, offenced pastures and irrigation in the valleys, the other beef breeds are also now strongly supported in varioussections. The Hereford's reputation as a grazer, however, is possibly not equaled. His ability to make beef off grass has made him famous (see text, page 630).
