The Herefords

img_0469All cows are calved outside all year around so they must be a easy calving cow with strong maternal qualities and good milk. Equally sires used must be easy calving and producing strong lively calves and that are often up and running from almost the second they drop to the ground!  All cattle including young bulls are fed as part of a group and never selectively fed.  In fact, all bloodlines such ase.g. Churchhill Storm are truly tested at Ballymartin for consistency, correct conformation,  easy calving,  easy weight gain,  and docility.  The true Hereford is one that can thrive in all the challenges that Ballymartin can throw at it.
