Belgian blue

Breeding with Belgian Blue bulls from the CRV/BBG breeding programme guarantees calves with great beef conformation, long in the body but with fineness and easy to rear.

The Belgian-Blue breed is acclaimed for its double muscling. Thanks to its very low methane emissions per kilogram of beef produced, it is also one of the most ecological breeds available. The beef it produces is not only lean but also low in cholesterol. Belgian Blue is a beef breed that matures early, the first calving occurs at around 24 months, compared to often 36 months in other beef breeds.
