Red Poll Cattle Society
The Red Poll Cattle Society is a registered Charity in the U.K. and was founded in 1888 to encourage the development of Red Poll cattle and promote their use within the livestock industry.
The Red Poll Cow is one of the traditional native British dual purpose breeds (beef & milk).
It is naturally polled (hornless). It thrives on low input management systems as it is an efficient converter of forage requiring little or no additional feed.
An easy calving docile cow and an excellent mother.
Steers and young bulls finish well and produce outstanding quality meat.
The Red Poll Cattle Society serves its members by encouraging the development of Red Poll cattle and promoting their use within the livestock industry.
The majority of Red Polls in the UK are used as suckler cows (i.e. they are allowed to rear their calves until weaning at about 8 months); although a small number of milking herds continue. Milking cows will give average yields of 5,000 litres @ 4.2% butterfat and 3.5% protein.
If you are interested in owning Red Poll Cattle or are an existing owner and want to generate sales, we offer benefits to Members who wish to advertise their cattle on the website. If we can help with this or any other information, please contact us for more details.
We also have some great events for students & younger members who are keen to get involved with the Red Poll Cattle Society.
