UK breeding cattle sale
« on: April 11, 2021, 03:30:38 PM »
I just thought I would drop a link to a sale of in-calf beef cattle in Northern Ireland. Mainly with the thought of showing what other people value in their livestock.
They are not my cup of tea at all, and I'm not sharing the link as a good example of cattle in Northern Ireland, (there are some great maternal cattle producing beef in Northern Ireland) but some people will pay handsomely for these heifers. They will be used to mainly breed show calves.
I know they will horrify several of you as breeding replacements.

I found using the old tractor tires as fencing interesting.  That was the only thing I found interesting in these cattle... but different environment and market-- JMO

Am I correct in believing these "show calves" are actually judged by the abattoir buyers, or their connections, at the shows and that's what drives their more extreme lean meat phenotype?
