Red Poll

A traditional type of East Anglian cattle - being a cross between the Norfolk and Suffolk - and first mentioned in 1782 by Marshall in his "Rural Economy of Norfolk". It is used both for its milk and as a beef animal.

Red Poll cattle are now listed by the Rare Breed Trust as a 'vulnerable' breed. This is largely because of the popularity of the more commercial Friesan and since the 1960's numbers have been falling significantly. There's now a breed society at See ' Rare Breed Trust'
