Dunn Farms was established in 1880, with the first Herefords arriving at the Cochranton, Mercer County farm in 1943. Bill and Bobbi Dunn, along with their children Walker and Reagan, now operate the heavily Hereford influenced cow-calf operation. Bill works off of the farm with his father and brother running a blacktop paving business. Bobbi spends most of her time on the farm, working part time as a hair dresser and serving as a 4-H leader.

The Beef Checkoff Program was established as part of the 1985 Farm Bill. The checkoff assesses $1 per head on the sale of live domestic and imported cattle, in addition to a comparable assessment on imported beef and beef products. States retain up to 50 cents on the dollar and forward the other 50 cents per head to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, which administers the national checkoff program, subject to USDA approval.
