Welcome to Studdolph Herefords, where the Glenvale Poll, Ashdale British Polled and Studdolph Poll herds are located at Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire.
Our aim is to continue to produce high quality cattle that are required for today’s market.
“Queen by name, Queen by nature”
The only British Polled line in the herd that derives from the original horned Herefords at Studdolph, which were established in 1946. A very well-respected family, a Queen often appears in the show team and young bulls from this line stand out amongst their peers.
Ashdale 3 Queen 509 was recently crowned Best Exhibit at the 2020 Dyfed Hereford Breeders Virtual Show, having won the cow class. Judge Clive Davies commented that Queen is “an excellent example of a modern Hereford”. Queen 509 also represented Wales in the Hereford of the World competition.
