This is part of a 13 part listing. Each day we will add another ‘Top 20’ for the 12 most popular pedigree breeds. We will also be publishing a ‘Top 20’ listing of commercial beef cows to complete this listing.

In order to make the list animals must have been in a HerdPlus herd at time of data extraction.

A new breed listing will be added at random everyday over the next fortnight.

Make sure to stay tuned to see if your cows have made these listings.
