A club is a collective group of people with a common thread. The common thread here is preservation of the Native or Traditional Hereford. This club was formed in August 1996 by Hereford Cattle breeders, within the UK, who wished to maintain the Native or Traditional Hereford Cattle, who were bred from cattle that were born and reared in Great Britain and Ireland, and whose ancestry is traceable to the 1878 Herd Book.

This Club is, however, not a preservation society. The aim of the club is to maintain and expand the influence of the Native Hereford in today's conditions. This entails using the cattle of our past to enhance and support our cattle in the future. However, the conservation of these cattle is entirely in the hands of club members and their ability to breed, rear and market the results of their work within the modern economic climate.

The club aim is to meet four times a year. These meetings are usually held twice at the Royal Show Ground, Stonleigh, Warwickshire, in September and December; in March at Hereford House, Hereford, for the Annual General Meeting; and once a year, usually in June, for a farm walk, to inspect typical working cattle of the Breed. The meetings have a formal and social aspect to them. The formal aspect of the meetings is the discussion and formulation of the aims and objectives that we as a club are able to influence. The bringing together of like minded people in an atmosphere of friendship provides the basis of our social aspect.

The Club is part of the "Traditional Meat Marketing Scheme". This enables all cattle reared for slaughter, that are Native Hereford in breeding, the opportunity be marketed through the Scheme. This is a formal arrangement which enables us to market our cattle in a competitive and profitable manner conducive with the overall aims of the club. Members are also entitled to market their cattle to their own personal advantage, however that might be.

In the left hand column are a list of the herds that are in the Club. Those underlined, if you click on them, will link you to the member of the Club's own web site. Members who wish to add their prefix, if it is not present, can do so by informing me of said prefix. Those of you who are unable to justify a website may wish to have a page on this site, connected to their herd prefix. If you wish to do either of these then contact me using the contact page and the "Query form" on there.
