The National Poll Show celebrates its 60th Anniversary this year and its 50th Anniversary at Moreton-in Marsh Showground.

The Show has gone from strength to strength over many years and now boasts one, if not, the biggest entry of Hereford cattle anywhere in Europe.

This year is no exception - with Hereford breeders’ pulling out all the stops to make this another memorable occasion. Breeders’ will be travelling from across the UK to attend and compete. There will be no shortage of quality too, with many Summer Show Champions in attendance. Judging the Hereford classes will be well-known Hereford breeder and show commentator Mr Clive Davies, Westwood Herefords.

Whilst enjoying the fine show of Herefords, why not visit the Hereford marquee for refreshments or to find out more about this wonderful Breed and discover why farmers are turning to the Hereford as their Breed of choice. British Cattle Movement Services (BCMS) have recorded record increases of Hereford sired progeny in Great Britain, with a similar picture in Northern Ireland as processed by Animal & Public Health Information System (APHIS).

Hereford Cattle have stood the test of time for well over 200 years and today offer tremendous opportunities to Beef Cattlemen wishing to produce Quality Beef naturally and economically.

The modern attributes of Hereford Cattle, combined with those that have made the breed the cornerstone of the beef producing industry for so many years, make it the natural choice of Quality Beef producers.

In light of the many problems that have beset the Beef industry in recent years, in no small measure contributed to by the intensification of farming methods, it is the Hereford with it's unique ability of producing top Quality Beef naturally from grass and grass related products that can lead the way to a safer and more secure future for Beef Producers in this country.

Extensive, organic and economic methods of beef production are now without question key factors to a successful future and it is Hereford Cattle that excel when bred and reared under such conditions producing naturally marbled beef, which is succulent and full of flavour.

Hereford beef is now acclaimed by many leading purveyors of Quality Beef from all over the world for its succulence and flavour meeting the demands of today's discerning customers.
