The farm is home to our herd of pedigree Horned Hereford cattle. Currently we have around 40 breeding cows + followers, split between spring and autumn calving. Our Herefords are working cattle - They're docile, easy calving, low maintenance animals who thrive off a grass based system. The Boycefield Herd was founded in 2002 when James Lewis and brother Edward of the world famous Haven Herefords split the Herd and James moved up the road to Boycefield where he now farms with wife Lucinda and son Billy.
We are currently using three sires over the majority of our herd. Our main stockbull is Lisrace Lumberjack, with semen being used from Boycefield Congo (Horned Hereford bull of the year 2007) and Australian bull Yarram Park Unique P160.
2022 On Farm sale
2022 marked the bicentenary of the Lewis Family breeding Hereford cattle. To mark this milestone we held an on-farm sale alomgside the Haven herd back in the summer. All of the "V" born heifers from the "Haven" & "Boycefield" herds were up for grabs. All of our heifers went to very good working herds, with Boycefield Acorn 45th fetching a price of 14,000gns!
All three have proved extremely easy calving bulls and produce great hard-working heifers and bull calls alike. A large proportion of the younger cows in our herd are sired by Lumberjack. We're very excited to now be able to put these cows to the Australian bull Yarram Park Unique. We're striving to breed easy care cattle that are able to thrive off a low input system, both in terms of labour and feed. We carry no passengers at Boycefield, every animal has to pay its way on our commercial farm. So, when you buy cattle from us you can be sure that they are going to be practical hard-working animals with historical world leading genetics that will perform in the modern economic climate.
