PUREBRED POLLED MINIATURE HEREFORDS
Miniature Polled Herefords do not have horns - which is advantageous for lifestyle farmers, who may not have the facilities to manage horned breeds. There is also no
de-budding or other horn related management.
Miniature Herefords are fast becoming the preferred choice for the lifestyle farmer. Their docile temperament and ease of handling is advantageous, there is less pasture damage compared to their larger counterparts and where a lifestyle farmer could not have necessarily fit Hereford's on a small block, now these small nuggety cattle allow Hereford lovers exactly that opportunity.
