What People Say About Us

David Swain
David Swain
I have been using Oldfield bulls for a number of years. They all have excellent temperament, good conformation and great eye pigmentation. We have next to no calving problems with Oldfield bulls. The after sale service and assistance that I receive from the McArthur family, combined with the above qualities, are the reasons why we continue to buy Oldfield bulls.

About Oldfield Poll Herefords

We are passionate poll Hereford breeders because you can't beat them for feed efficiency and growth for age.  Our stud cattle are hard-working, authentic performers.  We calve our heifers out at 2 years of age without assistance. Our cows must calve and rear their progeny in natural conditions to remain in our herd.

Our bulls consistently have well-developed carcase qualities, are balanced, quiet, structurally correct with good skin and hair and abundant power.  They are fertile too - since starting semen morphology testing 5 years ago, the results have been above 90% each year which is exceptional.  Our sale bulls are 100% grass fed.

Our sires for 2012 physical joining are Oldfield Dynamite! D43, Markowen Classic, Markowen The Don F54, Cannawigra Battleground C79 and our son Oldfield Fusion F110 who is by an outstanding New Zealand bull, Otapawa Skymate 2046 ET (NZ).  In our A.I. programme we used Bowen Extremist E96 and Cascade El Dorado E27.  We eagerly anticipate the 2012 drop of calves!

 Our 16th annual on-property sale is on Friday, 31 August 2012 with inspection from 11am and sale-o! at 1pm.
