Original Population Hereford breeders pride themselves on producing a high-yielding, compact beef animal with natural thickness and an unmatched ability to convert grass to quality meat.
Their conversion rate can be attributed to the skilled breeding of these cattle, having been selectively chosen for their docility, conformation and foraging ability since the 17th century.
These characteristics make them ideal for use within both suckler beef and dairy operations, with producers able to reduce inputs and create a highly desirable end product, whether selling as youngstock or finished beef.
