Welsh Black Beef

The Dyfrydog Herd is based in the parish of Llandyfrydog near Llannerch-y-medd, the cattle heartland of Anglesey, with the land sloping southwards towards the mountains of Snowdonia.

Founded back in 1971, the Dyfrydog Herd of Welsh Black Cattle was closed to incoming female breeding lines in 1976 and all cow replacements have been from within the herd ever since. This ensures that all animals marketed for beef are fully traceable for over 40 years and all carry the Dyfrydog Herd prefix.
