Welcome to Cadfor

Welcome to the newly refreshed Cadfor website.

We are passionate about breeding quality Murray Grey cattle which are born easily, grow quickly on grass and produce a carcase with superior muscling and finish to meet current market requirements.  Our aim is to sell herd improver bulls  to commercial breeders.  Our bulls are quiet, easily handled, sound, fertile and will improve the average herd in calving ease, growth and carcase quality.  We are very focused on performance recording and provide prospective clients with full Breedplan figures as well as their raw weight and scan data.

We also have an equestrian business.  We teach riding and run clinics and holiday camps for pupils.

We hope you enjoy looking around our website and we look forward to answering any queries you might have.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Andrew and Sue Arcus, Parkesbourne.

"Cadfor Jam Packed J183 has the most lovely temperament, being easy to handle and manage. He has incredible length and fabulous muscling. Every single calf has ‘slipped out like butter’. Not one single assisted birth. The calves are tremendous and all showing excellent growth.”

Penelope Notter, "Daisybank", Laggan

Cadfor Murray Grey bulls solved the calving problems I had with my heifers. I now run three of them across my whole herd. They are quiet and easily handled. The calves are “bricks on legs” just like their sires. What a pleasure it is to work with good stock!

Pat Thomas, "Dead Man's Hill", Tarcutta

Just thought I would let you know how impressed I am with Cadfor Jupiter’s calves – beautiful sausage shaped calves with very small head, some 8 weeks old and look sensational. 48 calves on the ground, 12 to heifers, could not be happier. Jupiter is such a beautiful quite easy to manage animal. Many thanks, Pat
