Hereford Cattle

Hereford Society membersOur Shraden Herefords have been in existence since 1919 and there are now around 130 with 58 breeding cows. Animals that produce tender and tasty meat are what we are looking for and I am sure that you are too. We regularly test our Herefords to make sure they are good enough to eat! The cows are outside enjoying the fields at Moor Farm from March until November each year. We then bring them into an open shed and feed them on home-produced silage. We can guarantee full traceability of the meat we sell to our customers both via our shop and online. When demand outstrips supply, Hereford beef is used from regional Hereford breeders that we know so that we can assure our customers of the provenance and quality.

In addition to this, our cattle are award winning - they are entered into around ten shows annually and in 2011 have so far won  2 Breed Champions, 4 Reserve breed champions, 2 Female champions, and 1 Reserve, 4 Champion  pairs, Champion Interbreed group of three at Shropshire and Champion Native Interbreed pair at Stafford. Melissa and I have been brought up with Hereford cattle and we have successfully stock-judged at shows across the country as well as Canada throughout our Young Farmer’s Club years. We are now being asked to judge pedigree classes at shows.
