Miniature Herefords, bred by Andrew and Marie Bayliss of Starburst Herefords and Shorthorns, were displayed in a pen at the Turriff show, in Aberdeenshire, Scotland,  in August, 2012.   Mini Ginger and Mini Goldrush, as well as  their offspring,  Starburst Joker, who was born in Scotland in June, was introduced to the public at the Scottish National Hereford Show.  The local paper picked up the news and produced a picture of mother and son in a center fold of show highlights.  Joker made a real hit with the kids.  It is believed this is the first time Miniature Herefords have been on display, in the UK.   They are all registered with the Hereford Cattle Society and have proven to be very popular as people realize the multitude of  benefits of the smaller Hereford genetics and their ability to perform as efficient back yard beef producers on smaller holdings, while still having all the traits that made Herefords popular in the past.
