The Longley Whitebred Shorthorn herd began in 1977 with the purchase of Nether Oakshaw Tom, our first Whitebred Shorthorn bull who was bought to use on some of our fold of Highland Cattle.
The herd now numbers 24 home bred cows which makes it one of the largest Whitebred Shorthorn herds in existance today.
From the onset of our pedigree breeding of Highlanders, we were health conscious. Joining the government health regulations in the early 1960's, and later with private company's such as BioBest High Health.
Currently our herd is accredited for IBR and BVD and has a Johnes risk level 1.
Also, many additional tests have been done to enable us to export cattle worldwide.
Visitors always welcome by appointment
