Rayleigh Poll Herefords
Contact: Robyn & Jeff Holcombe
Rayleigh Poll Hereford Stud was established in 1957 with Hereford cows from Lomani and Dalkeith. Cows from Debarry, Margfred Park, Glencoe, Cannawigra, Courallie and several other studs have been added since. The majority of our cows still descend from these foundation females, as these lines have proven so reliable in their performance and predictability.
Maintaining productivity and fertility in dry times is something we are heavily focused on at Rayleigh. Being from a marginal climate our cattle are well accustomed to semi-arid type pastures. This allows for our cattle to be well adapted, low fuss and ready to work, particularly through dry times.
The aim of the Stud has always been to breed quiet, structurally correct, functional and efficient cattle which are noted for their ability to fatten on pasture and carry themselves through tough times.
