All our beef here at Hedges Farm is sired by Hereford Bulls. This native breed ensures many benefits from ease of handling to meat flavour and marbling.
Calves are born here from January to May in large sheds, they will then go with the cows to spend the summer rotated around several grass water meadows here at Hedges Farm.
The calves will receive no extra food during this first summer, they will rely on their mother’s milk and gradually begin to eat grass.
Calves are weaned during the late Autumn and spend winter in open sheds feeding as and when they wish to on home-produced barley, oats and grass silage.
