Tlell Polled Herefords  

Home of the Udderly Awesome


The Richardson family have been producing beef on the Queen Charlotte Islands since 1919. The Tlell Polled Hereford herd was founded in 1981 and has evolved into one of British Columbia's most prominent Polled Hereford herds.

 Registered Hereford bulls have been sold to the commercial cattlemen at the Vanderhoof Bull Sale every year since 1986 and at the William’s Lake Bull Sale since 2000. In the past eight years we have held an Annual Online Sale to sell our Registered Polled Hereford females and elite bulls to fellow Hereford Breeders. In the past five years we had sales across Canada and overseas to Great Britain, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Australia, New Zealand and Uruguay
