Herefords Australia Sign

HEREFORD CATTLE have their origins, as the name suggests, in Herefordshire, in the south-west of England. Since their beginnings, they have spread to over 50 countries, starting in Kentucky, USA in 1817. From Canada, Mexico, and South America to Australasia, Russia, Israel, Japan, Europe and Scandinavia – more than 5 million pedigree Hereford cattle now exist, making them the largest group of registered cattle on the globe. Although they were first bred in Britain’s moderate, moist climate, they have stood the test in much harsher climates all over the world. Originally used as work oxen, they were very large animals. Up until the 18th century, Herefords were the same as other cattle in England – totally red with a white switch. By the end of the 18th century, the characteristic white face was established, and the red color of the modern breed in the 19th century. Today, Hereford cattle can still be seen in the Herefordshire hills.

Herefords first came to Australia in 1826, and Herefords Australia is the organization that promotes and supports Hereford breeders across the country.

The sign incorporates the HAL logo in a dimensional rendering, with hand sculpted artwork that is palladium gilded. Layered panels add depth, as well as the add on letters. The subtext is sandblasted into the sign surface, while the main panel is bordered with a round over trim in complementary black. The sign is made of high density urethane – with the density and weight of wood, but with a much longer life, being completely waterproof and insect-proof.
