Red Poll Cattle Society Membership

The Red Poll world is made up of members from every walk of life and has links throughout the world. There are members of Red Poll organisations in Republic of Ireland, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, Jamaica, New Zealand, South Africa, United States of America as well as those in the UK "mother country" and all say it is truly a family of like-minded people who enjoy nothing better than to get together and talk about Red Polls.

All members receive regular issues of Red Poll News, keeping them up-to-date with events in the Society and the Red Poll community.

Events held for members include:
Annual Field Day - help at a member's herd, a day which is very popular
Workshops - help on various topics ie. finishing cattle; preparing for showing; fertility
Annual Dinner - a great social get-together which is held in different parts of the UK in the autumn.

Registering Members are entitled to register cattle in the Society's Herd Book, subject to the Society's rules, and to receive the annual Herd Book free of charge.
Annual Members may purchase Herd Books if they wish.
Student Members are entitled to register two females in the Society's Herd Book, subject to the Society's rules
Neither Student nor Junior Members receive notice of, or can attend, or vote at, General Meetings. 

The Society encourages the use of standing orders for membership subscriptions, as this greatly reduces administration.  Also, Gift Aid greatly contributes a significant financial benefit to subscriptions and donations and all tax-paying members are urged to use the system, which enables the Society to claim back from HMRC the tax paid by members.
