Welcome to Bent Tree Farms
Home of the South Poll Cattle Breed!
We are excited to be introducing this new composite breed to the world.
The South Poll is a maternal composite combining four maternal breeds: Angus, Hereford, Senepol, and Barzona. A moderate framed, slick haired cow designed for hot, humid environments, the South Poll is ideal for our changing climate.

Red Angus Bull | Foundation Hereford Female
The breeders at Bent Tree Farms have placed an emphasis on fertility and longevity with special attention to carcass quality for almost twenty years. The South Poll is the culmination of this breeding program.
The idea for the South Poll's origin was based on a desire to combine four maternal Bos Taurus breeds together to form a more heat tolerant animal, that had a gentle disposition and tender carcass qualities. We wanted to start with a Hereford/Angus base, but since only a small percentage of the overall population in Hereford and Angus are slick haired we started looking for two other breeds that would compliment the maternal abilities of the Hereford and Angus.
