The Elbridge Herd
The Elbridge Herd is one of the largest Sussex Herds in the country. The Sussex breed is one of Englands oldest native breeds of cattle and are renowned for producing tender marbled meat. A huge advantage of the Sussex breed is their ability to thrive on extensive rearing systems and not needing large quantities of manufactured concentrates. The cattle fit in with the mixed nature of our farm well, being fed on waste potatoes and arable bi-products alongside their winter forage.
The Elbridge Herd was thrilled to win best large herd in the society herd competition 2016 and best new registered bull 2016 for Elbridge Poll Captain 1st.
