Hereford ( HUR-furd) is a city in and county seat of Deaf Smith County, Texas, United States. It is forty-eight miles southwest of Amarillo. The population was 15,370 at the 2010 census. It is the only incorporated locality named "Hereford" in the country. Hereford's local water supply contains an unusually high level of naturally occurring fluorine. Because fluoride is used to protect against tooth decay, Hereford earned the title "The Town Without a Toothache". It is also known as the "Beef Capital of the World" because of the large number of cattle fed in the area. The city is named for the Hereford breed. The local economy is affected significantly by growth in the dairy and ethanol industries. The area is known for its semiarid climate with heavy farming and ranching throughout the area sustained by irrigation from the Ogallala Aquifer and the saltier Santa Rosa Aquifer beneath it. Hereford is home to the headquarters of the Deaf Smith Electric Cooperative, which serves Deaf Smith, Castro, Parmer, and Oldham counties. A rich Western heritage includes the Las Escarbadas ranch house of the XIT Ranch located southwest of Hereford in Deaf Smith County. The restored historic structure can now be seen at the National Ranching Heritage Center at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. The Deaf Smith County Historical Museum at 400 Sampson Street in Hereford offers indoor and outdoor exhibits on the settlement of West Texas. In December 2015, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer voted Hereford not only the "most conservative" city in Texas but in the United States as well in terms of political contributions. Other West Texas communities in the most conservative lineup are Childress (No. 9), Dalhart (No. 8), and Monahans (No. 5). Princeton in Collin County north of Dallas was ranked No. 2. In contrast, Vashon Island, Washington, was named the "most liberal" city in the nation regarding political donations.
