Join the Hereford Cattle Society today and become part of a network of Hereford enthusiasts.

Some of the benefits

Register your cattle, sell at one of our official society shows and sales or one the society’s summer shows and join one of the UK’s fastest growing beef breeds.

The breed has seen a huge resurgence in recent years. There are now over 1,000 active breeders across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland which has increased by nearly 60 per cent over the last 10 years.

Over 9,000 pedigree calves are now registered each year, which is up nearly 50 per cent compared to 10 years ago. Looking at the equally important commercial numbers, over 185,000 Hereford sired progeny are now registered each year in the UK, an increase of almost 90 per cent increase over the last decade.

New breeders may wish to use the society’s annual management letter, which for the year ending 30 June 2024 is B.

Hereford Cattle Society is the only beef breed society in the UK to offer Breedplan performance recording for FREE.

Additionally, due to the importance of scanning data, the society offers its membership a scanning incentive of £5 per animal.
