Breed History

Traditional Herefords are similar to the more modern Hereford cattle but the Traditional Hereford only has the original bloodlines of the native cattle of Britain. They are more resilient than the modern Hereford and are able to survive on very rough pastures.

Our Purpose

The Traditional Hereford cattle are bred for their hardiness and ability to grow really strong even if there is not much food available. These days they are often used to cross breed to make calves hardy and strong!
