Belgian Blue Producer Group

The Irish Belgian Blue Cattle Society has set up a producer group in conjunction with Ashbourne Meats Roscrea in which a 5 cent bonus will be paid for Belgian Blue cross cattle which fit the criteria.  The desired spec cattle are very easy to achieve on most beef farms when correct feeding practices are implemented. High Maize rations are essential to achieve adequate fat scores.

BBX cattle have proven themselves as extremely efficient feed converters and the high kill outs which they achieve contribute to a very healthy profit margin. These cattle can be fattened with absolutely zero feet problems on slats.
