Welcome to Bosbury Herefords

Our growing herd of pedigree Hereford cattle is managed to the highest standards of welfare to provide the best quality meat.


Introduction

Top class pedigree

Our Bosbury Herefords are a continuation of the Bosa Hereford herd established nearly 40 years ago by Gerald Blandford in Herefordshire.

Sarah Hawkins acquired the herd in 2018 with the aim of preserving its renowned heritage and continuing the fine tradition of pedigree breeding.


About us

An exciting future

Now this growing herd of pedigree polled Hereford cattle has settled into a life of grazing on the lush grass of the river meadows and permanent pasture beside the River Leadon at The Farm and within the shade of the old traditional apple orchards.

The herd is managed to the highest standards of welfare and belongs to the BioBest health scheme with BVD & Lepto Accredited, Johnes – Level 1. The herd is also fully assured within the Red Tractor scheme with full traceability and we work closely with the local Veterinary Practice .

At Bosbury Herefords, we produce feminine, docile, milky cows with high fertility, all calving in Spring time.  We also believe in breeding Herefords free of waste, with dense muscling and well-developed hind quarters which produces exceptional taste.

Extended cow families include: Laurel, Margaret, Dowager, Rosa, Priscilla, Elke, Brownie, Julia, Elke, Mindbender
