Having admired the Red Poll Cattle breed for many years, we jumped at the chance to acquire 2 bred cows and a bull for our small farm. These cattle are exactly what we were looking for. More info and pictures will be added as the website rebuild continues but for now here is a quote from the Livestock Conservancy page.
“Red Poll cattle are medium in size, with cows averaging 1,200 pounds and bulls 1,800 pounds. The cattle are solid red, with a little white on the underline tolerated but not desired. They are adaptable and long lived. Red Polls have quiet dispositions and they are an excellent choice for rotational grazing and other systems where ease of handling is required. Cows can also be used for small-scale and home dairy production. The milk is high in protein and butterfat, making it especially good for cheese.”
