Hereford in Hungary

The Hungarian Hereford Angus Galloway Association was found on the 1st of July 1988 and been carrying on its work ever since, for the benefit of the Hereford breed and breeders.

The association has been the member of the World Hereford Council since 1990 and a full member since 1992.
In 1995 we have organized the 8th European Hereford Conference in Hungary.

Our professional goal is to preserve the profitability and competitiveness of the beef cattle rearing of our members.

Hereford beef cattle was brought to Hungary by  British import in 1970, establishing pure blood Hereford breeding in Hungary. After this, 4000 Hereford breeding cattles were imported from the USA and Canada. To preserve the great genetic abilities of the breed, we continue to import adulterant and embryos from world class suckling cows and bulls for service. We use mostly British, Australian, New Zealander, Irish and South-American bloodlines.
90% of the Hungarian Hereford stock is homozygote polled.

Our association registeres 4000 pure blood and 4000 crossbreed Hereford suckler cows in the stock farms of 80 breeders.
