About UsThe Lincoln Red – a breed with ancient origins. The ancestors of this magnificent bull were probably brought in by the Viking invaders of Britain.

We would like to introduce you to the Lincoln Red, one of the oldest of the UK’s native beef breeds. A polled animal, well fleshed with a deep cherry-red coat, a wide muzzle and well placed legs and sturdy feet, ideally suited to range conditions. Originally dual-purpose, the Lincoln Red female makes an excellent easy calving suckler cow. Either pedigree or crossbred, the resulting progeny grow rapidly and can be finished under many different systems either grazing or more intensively, producing marbled, flavourful, succulent beef.
