What are Traditional (Original Population) Herefords?

We think that we may be the only Traditional Hereford breeders in Scotland at present. If this is not the case, please get in touch with us! We'd love to meet other breed enthusiasts!
Traditional Hereford cattle are recognised as a Category 5 rare breed by the Rare Breed Survival Trust. They are descended exclusively from the original population of English Hereford cattle with no imported bloodlines, unlike commercial Herefords. They are the ultimate foragers, capable of producing exceptional beef entirely from grass. Our cattle are entirely pasture fed (hay in winter). They are noted for ease of calving and very docile temperaments, which is why we chose them as our breed of cattle.
