By the reserve Sire of the Year, Velleyhill 1 Ho Boy, Hurst was first in his class at the Three Counties Show this year and sports a Terminal Sire Index of +37 and a Self Replacing Index of +44, both being in the top 1% for the breed.

There has been strong interest in France for the Hereford breed during the past 12 months, including in the meat sector, with major retailer, Metro, re-launching its Hereford Vintage Beef range.
