Red Polls: The Beef Industry's Best-Kept Secret
Until now, the Red Poll breed has been the industry’s best-kept secret. Now we are ready to share that secret with you. According to Dr. Keith Gregory, long-time USDA Researcher at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, “I feel the Red Poll breed is one of the most underutilized breeds in the country. Our research has shown the contributions this breed can make to crossbreeding programs. Red Polls excel in early puberty, with our studies showing they had the highest percentage of conception at a younger age of puberty. This breed also has optimum milk production and makes for an ideal cross.”
Red Polls have been waiting to move to the forefront of the cattle industry, and now is the time.
