HISTORY

index banner

The Branchal prefix, along with Terling are the only two prefix's listed in Volume 1 of the herd book which are still in existence and actively still registering today. The current generation of Telfer's are immensely proud of our past and heritage, although we realise that we cannot and should not rest on our laurels. But it would be amiss to ignore the history, as part of our centenary celebrations we produced a booklet telling you more about our past, and if you are interested in a copy please contact us.

In the meantime take time to browse the following documents which will enlighten you about how it all began, and what happened along the way!
