Hereford are a good size, well muscled breed of beef cattle, characterised by a deep red coat and white face, crest, underside and socks. Hereford thrive in most environments. They have excellent reproductive ability: early puberty, high fertility, ease of calving and excellent
mothering abilities. Like the Angus, they are often mated to Limousin, Charolais and Belgian Blue, to produce crossbreed of great quality.
