To promote gentle South Poll Cattle as the premier heat-tolerant maternal breed for the efficient conversion of  grass to tender beef.

South Polls are bred to be slick-haired, small-framed cows with emphasis placed on high fertility, longevity, and calm disposition.  South Polls are bred to excel on a grass based grazing system.  Ultrasound and actual carcass data on the South Poll tells us that they are as tender, or more tender, than straight bred English cattle.
