Welcome to Craigmore Polled Herefords

David’s grandfather had commercial Herefords and then his father, Bruce started Craigmore Herefords in 1970 and had both stud and commercial Herefords. Today David has all stud Herefords and no commercial cows. David, Sue and their son, Daniel  run the stud and have 400 breeding cows on the peatlands, south of Hamilton

The farm also finishes beef cattle that have been brought in  as store cattle. The farm also grows 50 hectares of maize per year which is sold onto dairy farmers as a food supplement.

We have done the work for you!  Buy our bulls with confidence!

In 2019 and 2020 Craigmore has chosen to genomic test their bulls using a 50K SNP to help improve the accuracy of their EBVs. SNP genotypes, along with pedigree information and performance information, are incorporated into the calculation of BREEDPLAN EBVs. They assist in increasing the accuracy of an animal’s EBV figures by combining observed trait data, pedigree performance data and the genomic predictions.

This DNA technology has allowed us to:

  1. Parent verify all our bulls
  2. Manage genetic conditions such as hypotrichosis
  3. Identify qualitative traits such as whether an animal is polled or horned.
  4. Make genetic improvements in production traits.

Now you will be able to use Craigmore yearling bulls with more confidence and be able to make genetic progress faster. This will add profit to your cattle business.
