LivestockCattleRed Polls£ 800 From
Our organic herd were winners of the South West Red Poll Cattle Society Competition last year. We have up to 16 yearling heifers for sale and maybe 6 in calf heifers (for £1300 each calving October onwards this year). Our cattle are grass fed and have all been born on our farm.
Red Polls are excellent mothers and often used for conservation grazing as they will eat all types of grasses and nibble on the hedges. They are easy to handle with a reliable temperament. They are a dual purpose breed as their milk is rich in butterfat and so suckling calves do extremely well. We have sold to dairy herds as well as beef herds to improve the quality of dairy milk with a strong beef calf. We sell our own meat from our steers so we know how delicious and nutritious it is.
Red Polls are a British "Breed at Risk" so qualify for Countryside Stewardship Native Breeds at Risk Supplement at £94 per hectare per annum.
Previous purchasers have come to the farm to choose their stock. If you are interested, please contact us firstly and we can organise individual photos or a visit to the farm (keeping our distance from you)....Read full description
