Mendip HerdSusan Tanner - Somerset
We just love our Red Polls! We chose them as we wanted a rare breed that was traditional and could thrive outside all year round if necessary. They are easy calving with excellent mothering skills and the bulls that we have had are also very placid. We keep some outside all year round and some come inside over the wettest part of the winter. They are easy to handle and easy to halter train – well most of them! They are gentle towards other livestock, we have had ewes and lambs in with them with no issues.
The meat is fabulous, tender and with excellent taste, we have many repeat customers.
