One of the most popular of the traditional breeds in the UK. Exported to South America in the 1930s this breed is predicted as the reason why South America became famous for its quality beef. One of our favourites with the largest herd in the UK being in Cheshire. Rich Marbling beef with a creamy fat cover.

Another one of the oldest of the primitive breeds. Slow maturing animal and a great roughage converter. Often used by the forestry commission to manage hillsides and woodland.

Dexter

DexterThe Dexter is a dual-purpose breed which was originally developed in the South West of Ireland. It is a small beast with a short broad head and a compact, thick set, square body. The breed is usually black but animals can be red or dun. Callum’s wife Debbie doesn’t believe there is better tasting beef than Dexter.

Long Horn
