Hereford

Hereford cattle are a beef cattle breed, widely used both in intemperate areas and temperate areas, mainly for meat production.

Originally from Herefordshire, England, more than five million pedigree Hereford cattle now exist in over 50 countries. The Hereford cattle export trade began from United Kingdom in 1817, starting in Kentucky, United States, spreading across the United States and Canada through Mexico to the great beef-raising countries of South America. Today, Hereford cattle dominate the world scene from Australasia to the Russian steppes. They can be found in Israel, Japan and throughout continental Europe and Scandinavia.

They are found in the temperate parts of Canada, the United States and Russia, as well as the temperate parts of Australia, the centre and east of Argentina, in Uruguay, and New Zealand, where they make up the largest proportion of registered cattle.

They originally found great popularity among ranchers of the American Southwest, testament to the hardiness of the breed; while originating in cool, moist Britain, they have proven to thrive in much harsher climates on nearly every continent.

Hereford reduces input costs. Along with the excellent conversion, Herefords offer hardiness, fertility, longevity and a gentle disposition, ideal for your herd and your pocketbook. Known as efficiency experts, Herefords have been beef industry icons for more than 100 years.

Herefords do more with less. Naturally efficient converters of grass and grains, a little feed goes a long way on the range and in the feedlot with Hereford genetics.
